Work camping.

There are many different ways to find volunteer positions, depending upon what you are looking for. Probably the best known and easiest would be Volunteer.Gov which is the federal government site and also has some state agencies. We have especially enjoyed our many experiences as RV volunteers with the US Fish & Wildlife Service as there are hundreds of wildlife refuges and fish hatcheries that provide RV sites and often other amenities for resident volunteers. We have spent time at 9 different federal wildlife refuges. Almost all state park systems have RV sites for volunteers and there are many different opportunities with them such as campground hosting, volunteer tour guides, and maintenance All that you need do is to plug the state name, parks into a search engine and the state park site should be found and most have a volunteer tab on their menu. Some examples would be Washington State Parks, Oregon State Parks, Oregon Game & Fish, Florida State Parks, and many, many others.  The National Park Service has their own volunteer pages and we have spent time in 5 different national parks helping with interpretive programs. 

Another excellent source of places to volunteer that one might not think of is a subscription to the Workamper News, where we found some of our most memorable experiences. This is probably one of the best sources for paid positions, along with the RVer Job Exchange on the Escapee website.

We began doing RV volunteer positions back in 2000 and for 12 years we would do 2 or more each year. We had such a great time that we have now completed 39 different tours as resident RV volunteers in 35 different places, and we continue to do so even though we are no longer fulltimers.
