Workamping is a portmanteau, blending the words "work" and "camping". A Workamper combines part-time or full-time paid or volunteer work with RV or tent camping.[1] Workampers generally receive compensation in the form of a free campsite, usually with free utilities and additional wages. Workamping positions can include working at campgrounds, RV resorts, mobile home communities, Christmas tree or pumpkin sales lots, amusement parks, motels/hotels, national parks, state parks, U.S. Army Corps of Engineer locations, national monuments, lighthouses, retail stores, food service, sales and more. Workamping is particularly popular among retirees[2]. While year round Workamping jobs do exist, many Workamping positions are seasonal.
