We have been hosting for 8 years now, and have never had anyone say we couldn't use ours. The main thing they want is for you to keep your site neat and clean as you are representing the park staff.

We used ours while camp hosts in Illinois and Florida SP's and while camp hosting at a USFS OHV site. We have always asked before setting it up and always had the go ahead.

We don't allow screen tents with a floor as being up for weeks or months will kill the grass. But you can have one if it does not have a floor.

Guess it depends on the park.Have seen in the rules at places where you can not even tie down the awning.They didn't want holes in their grass.

Best thing to do is add it to your question list when job searching. Each campground will be different.

I'd consider it an eyesore if its a beautiful park and/or expensive park. Would an awning screen room kit help if your worried about the bugs?

Yes, you did a nice job. However, we can see that it's on a lush piece of grass which is a luxury in a park. Sure hope yours doesn't kill it for the next person to enjoy.

We do not allow them. They do kill the grass and are a potential hazard if not securely anchored. When we did allow them we had instances where people tied them to the sprinkler system, to the plumbing and to the electrical boxes. We would not allow employees to erect one either. To do so would present a double standard to our guests, not something we go out of our way to do. Like someone said, if it is a deal breaker, ask when looking for a position.
