Trout Haven In the SD Black Hills

Trout Haven Resort
(Deadwood, SD)

If you want to spend your summer in one of the most beautiful resorts in the country then you've come to the right place. Trout Haven Fishing Resort & Campground has been a tourist attraction and destination stop in the Black Hills of South Dakota since 1952.


Trout Haven is in the heart of the Black Hills and 20 miles to Deadwood, Rapid City, Mt. Rushmore, and numerous tourist attractions. The area is filled with ATV, hiking, and horse trails, caves, nature, wildlife, gold mining, and of course fishing! A benefit to all our workers is a card for most of the attractions and is a great way to enjoy the best the area has to offer - for free or at a big discount!

We are pet friendly if you obey the rules. Please ask if you have a pet.

You will have a utility box and be required to pay for your monthly usage. On occasion, you may be asked to move to an electric-water site if we have groups.

Trout Haven is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Black Hills. Most of the "tribe" from 2008 is coming back, but we are looking for a few new friends who want to have fun and have a positive attitude about life. Trout Haven may be the right fit if you are goal oriented, motivated with a strong work ethic, a team builder and player, flexible, and personable.

Here are the positions we have for the Trout Haven season (May 15 to approximately September 15):

Cook/wait person: You will clean and take customer orders when needed, but mainly cook on the grill & deep fryers. You will get tips. You will get an RV spot for first 24 hours of work in a week and paid for any additional hours.

Grounds Person: This position requires you to keep up with all the mowing, weed pulling-spraying, trimming. We have a riding mover and all equipment. This position is a straight trade out for your RV spot (not including electric).

Cabin Cleaner: We have 7 cabins and you will be required to clean them as needed. You will also help maintain the shower house as needed. On the busier times you will have help. Trout Haven is known for everything being super clean, so you must take pride in your position. It is the cornerstone of our reputation. We will trade out an RV spot for cabins cleaned as needed. You are responsible for your utilities.

Maintenance Person: Here are a few of the trade skills we need - electric, plumbing, carpenter, flooring installation etc. This is an on call position once we get open and traded for a RV site (not including your electric). Min 24 hours a week.

Fishing Dock Attendants - This is one fun position if you like people and fishing. Trout Haven provides all the bait and fishing equipment. You bait the hook, take the fish off the hook, clean the fish, and bring it into our Saloon & Grill to be prepared fresh. Otherwise, you pack it on ice to go. Your job is to give them a great fishing experience and visit with them. A child catching his/her first fish or trout, with us making it exciting, is a memory that he/she can cherish forever.

We also take pictures of each catch. A fun, crowd loving personality is a must for this position. You also get tips which are very good! We will trade out a full RV spot for 24 hours of dock time a week. You are responsible for your utilities.
