Rocky Mountain Recreation Co.

(Gainesville, Fl)

Has anyone worked for Rocky Mountain Recreation Company? We have an offer to be a campground host at House Creek Campground near Dolores, Co. with this company. Has anyone worked for them or been to this campground?

We are looking for our first workcamper job. We appreciate any advice on being workampers. We are from Gainesville, Fl., and hope to spend summers out west and the winters in Florida or Georgia.

House Creek

Hi, House Creek is by McPhee Reservoir. House Creek lacks trees...big time. The other side of the reservoir, McPhee CG, has trees.

If it's either Dan or Don that is the manager (I don't remember his name), he and his wife are very nice. Where he was manager, all camgrounds were picked up, no noise, very nice.

The area is beautiful. Mesa Verde is right there. Cortez is there. They have a great Chinese restaurant. A big Walmart is there, too.

You have a most beautiful highway to ride from the cg to Telluride, Purgurtory. The steam train runs from Durango to Silverton.

Probably the same mgr who is hiring for House Creek will probably also do RioRico, nice campground. There are a few others I just don't remember the names.

It is a beautiful area, but the sun can be hot in the Rockies, even high in elevation. If you have never been in that area I would recommend going. If you can get a different cg, I would try.

Working in Colorado

My husband and I have done workamping in Colorado in the Royal Gorge Area.

We worked at a campground and at Buckskin Joe Frontier Town and Railway. What fun we had at Buckskin Joe's old west town.

There is also a campground on Rt 50 in Canon City near the gorge that is hiring.

We loveddddddddddd Colorado! So much to see and explore.

To be a Camp Host


Camp hosting depends on a lot of factors such as location and your wages vs expectations and hours worked. Do you clean bathrooms? Do you get paid hourly or is it salary? How far do you travel from home to get there? Are your expenses paid if you have to use your own vehicle for company business, if so are you being reimbursed in a timely manner? Do you have electricity and a dump station? Propane for heating? Air conditioning, possibly? Your RV is like a tin can with no insulation and gets quite hot or cold. How many campsites are you responsible for? Do they have a maintenance staff? Do you have management on duty or do you get up at 3 am to control a mean drunk singing loudly? Are you alone or working as a pair? Are you getting paid as a pair?

I worked for RMRC and can tell you a lot, but please provide more questions.

Camp Host Position

We are looking for camp hosts for the 2011 season beginning middle May, ending after Labor Day. Hourly wages and camp site with electricity is provided. The area is central California off Hwy 101. If you are good with people, love outdoors, but don't mind working hard, please contact us at Thank you.
