Has anyone had any experience joining the KOA workcamper program. I am looking for a place in Montana this summer and was thinking it might be helpful since there are a lot of KOA campagrounds in that area. I am a single camper and find positions somewhat limited for a single.

You don't need to join any program. Use the KOA directory and call a campground you want to work at. As with any other place, most prefer hiring couples cuz they get twice the work for one site but many will also hire singles.

Most KOAs are franchise operations. What the camper gets is pretty standard. What the workamper gets can be all over the map. I've worked at 2 KOAs and will not work at any more.

Hi,

We just worked our first KOA campground and it went just fine. Every KOA (except those that are corporate) are privately owned, and hence slightly different from each other. We worked in PA. and plan to head to ME for this coming season.

And we DO subscribe and pay for the Work at KOA (about $40. yearly)..but it's worth it...IMHO.

A positive thing for me was that the software for reservations is the same from one KOA to the next. So once you learn it, it's much the same for the next KOA...although the software may be USED in a slightly different way.

Coolworks.com listed a KOA looking for workampers in Yellowstone Natl. Park. Looked like it was just outside the south west entrance in Wyoming or SW Montana. Irover
