Dan River Campground is a small, family-owned campground located on 44 acres along the Dan River in Stoneville, Rockingham County, North Carolina. We are currently seeking seasonal or full-time groundskeepers/camp workers to begin in March of 2023, to help maintain our campground. The ideal candidates would be a couple who enjoy working outdoors together as a team, are self-starters, and enjoy being around people. Some of the outdoor work requires two people at times depending on the task.
We require 12 hours per week (can be combined to total 12 for a couple) in exchange for a 50amp, full-hookup site, including electric and internet. All work performed after the 12-hour site requirement is paid at $12.00 per hour. We employ our camp workers on an independent contractor (1099) basis.
Work to be performed includes lawn maintenance (mowing, weed trimming, weed prevention) and maintaining lawn equipment – MUST have experience working with outdoor lawn equipment; grounds maintenance, such as tree trimming and branch/debris removal, cleaning of fire pits and sites, raking, maintaining our trails, trash pickup, bathhouse cleaning, and any other campground duties as may be assigned. Other duties may include assisting the campground owners with enforcing camping regulations (such as speed limits, breaking quiet time, loud music, dog issues, etc.).
The majority of our campers are locals who enjoy camping with us through the summer season and either return every weekend, or quite often, and are well known to us at the campground. The campground itself is a beautiful, peaceful site with well-maintained areas and a clean bathhouse. We take pride in providing this to our campers and love to work with people who also take pride in their work and enjoy doing what they do.
