- Tallalhassee RV Park, Tallahassee, FL
- This was the first place we workamped while Paula was finishing up her career (2003). We have gone back there every year (2004, 2005, 2006) in the winter as we both still have family in the area and it gives us a chance to visit. While we are there we work part-time (20 hours per week) in the Tallahassee RV Park office handling reservations, check-ins, answering questions, helping with emergencies, providing tourist information, and giving directions to outside services, etc. Also did some web site maintenance (photos, etc. at http://www.tallahasseervpark.com/) and Wi-Fi system troubleshooting. We stopped working at TRVP in 2006.
- Eagle Nest RV Resort, Polson, MT
- This is our favorite place. We work 3 days and then have 12 days off to explore. During our shift we were responsible for all phases of park operations. Run the office, reservations, camper services as well as all grounds, pool, restroom, facilities maintenance, 24 hours per day. Also do some web site maintenance (photos, etc. at http://www.eaglenestrv.com/) and Wi-Fi system troubleshooting. We started hosting here in 2004, came back in 2005, back again in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015. We retired from workamping at the end of the 2015 season.
- Tombstone Territories RV Park, Huachua City, AZ
- This is a great park in a nice location. We were "Activity Coordinators" here in the Winter of 2004/2005. While we had a great time, being Activity Coordinators is a whole lot more work than we like to do. Thinking up activities, scouting activities, planning activities, doing publicity, doing the activity, whew...keeps you busy every day with something. None the less, it's a great place and we'd go back...but not to be Activity Coordinators!
- Meadowbrook Camping Area, Phippsburg, ME
- Each of us worked 20 hours per week during the summer of 2006, doing general office/campground store and outside maintenance tasks, including lobster cooking for our guests. The record was 83 lobsters one evening in three hours! Paula worked the campground office and used Campground Manager software. This was our least favorite workamping experience and we wouldn't go back to this park, although we would go back to Maine some time in the future.
- Chena Marina RV Park, Fairbanks, AK (Closed in 2014)
- Adventures in Alaska RV Rentals, Fairbanks, AK
- We had a wonderful time in Alaska during the Summer of 2007. Paul worked the campground office and used Campground Manager software. Duties included handling reservations, check-ins, answering questions, helping with emergencies, providing tourist information, and giving directions to outside services, etc. Paula worked in the RV Rental office. In addition to general office work, her duties included giving quotes for rentals, handling contracts, checking customers out on the RVs and checking the condition of the RVs on return.
