A new guidebook provides RVers with information about thousands of areas in state parks available for free camping in exchange for serving as a campground host.
According to a press release, Camp Hosting USA, co-authored by Russ and Tina De Maris, outlines opportunities on 13 million acres of land in 50 states.
“The information will not only save RVers time in researching the many positions available but it will ultimately save them a lot of money when they get set up in a park for a month or even an entire camping season,” said Russ De Maris. “Many RVers like the jobs because they keep them busy and allow them to perform a valuable service for their fellow travelers.”
Demaris said that a camp host – or more typically a camp hosting couple – will be asked to perform at least a few hours of work a week in exchange for a free campsite, often equipped with full hookups. The amount of work varies from park to park.
The couple, who also co-authored RV Boondocking Basics, offer insights from experienced volunteers as well as details on opportunities, requirements, and contact information.
Maps and comparative charts in the 144-page book allow RVers to easily match opportunities with their own needs. Camp Hosting USA is available online at RVbookstore.com for $16.95.
