      Phil & Vicki August 14 No but benefits are sometimes better with the US parks. My bride and I only look for non-profit sites, we feel that we've been blessed so much we want to give back. However if your looking for something for next summer our current position will be available.

      Stormtruck2 Mon at 10:25 AM Says that Workampers posted a reply I don't see one. I also emailed the Workampers site, and have heard nothing from them. Still not impressed.

      Cat_Link August 12 Winter is the high season so that means rates are at their highest. The closer you are to a beach, the higher the rate. Many places have the same seasonal people return yearly which results in few sites available for new people. It is wise to begin a snow...  more
