Virginia Workampers Needed

Recommended Posts

Awesome workamping opportunity near Richmond, VA. Volunteers needed at New Kent Forestry Center, Virginia Department of Forestry.


Located halfway between Richmond and Williamsburg in Providence Forge, VA this volunteer position requires 10 hrs per person per week in exchange for a full hook up site. The volunteer campground is located in a scenic and quiet section of the property with lots of birds and wildlife. Access to the Chicahominy River for canoes or kayaks is on the property.


Work for the guys mostly involves mowing grass around offices with zero turn mowers and in pine orchards with farm tractor and brush hog. Women help out in office and conference center with cleaning, filing and other projects.


The staff is very friendly, easygoing and great to get along with. This is a low stress volunteer position. Time commitment is anything from a month to a full season.


The area has no end of things to do and see, the area is loaded with colonial, revolutionary war and Civil War history sites. Shopping, restaurants, nightlife in both Richmond and Williamsburg. About 1.5 hours to Virginia Beach. Groceries and basics also available in Providence Forge.


We have been volunteering there for 3 years now and will definitely be back in the future. 


Feel free to contact us for more info or contact Jeff Stout or Lisa Burke at the Forestry Center at 804.966.2201.

It is about a mile back down a gravel road from the main entrance of the Forestry Center, parallel to US 60. Its in the pines, very quiet and private, laundry room is available in a nearby service building.

On Google maps it is at the intersection of George Dean Hwy and John Heltzer Ln.

Where is the full hook up site located?

The Virginia Department of Forestry has 2 tree farms and both use RV volunteers. We spent time several years ago at the sister location to the one above and it was great also. It is Agusta Forestry Center which is located near Crimora, VA at the south end of the Shenandoah Valley. That one also is a great place to volunteer with really nice RV sites.
