A lot of full time RV’ers do what is called “Camp Hosting”.  Although I’ve never done it I do know it is basically just taking care of things around the RV Park in exchange for a free campsite.  I do know that in some cases it is also more than that, however, that is the basic.

This year I had the opportunity to Camp Host at two different places.  One was in Fort Langley, B.C. and the other in Merritt, B.C.  Unfortunately due to the gazillion health issues I have I am not able able to commit to something like that.

But can you imagine doing a Camping Hosting gig at a place like here at HARRISON RIVER RV RESORT, that is sooooo beautiful.  The Park Owner stopped by to chat with me today to ask if I knew anybody that would do this job.  I immediately thought of two different couples.

Joe and Tara have been doing it full time 24/7 and it’s just too much for one couple.  They never get a day off.

So if you know of anyone who might be interested – even for next Season – let me know and I’ll pass the word along.  Or call the Park directly.


  1. If you decide to camp host, you definitely want to be sure it's in a fabulous location. We tried it once. The location was perfect but the "gig" wasn't.

  2. Jim and I have talked about it but that's all it ever amounted to. Wonder if Toni and Doug might want to do it?

  3. Do you mean working all day 7 days a week??


    1. Byron, That would have to be worked out with the Owner. However, Usually you have scheduled days off. I know in some of the State Parks I've stayed in they work 20 Hours a week.

  4. We are paid, and paid well. There is a slim chance we won't have this job next year because the park contractor is changing, but it's slim. Thanks for thinking of us Sandie.

  5. Sounds like it could be a pretty good way to save on site fees and keep bust at the same time. TR (HighwayMan)
