The Helena, Montana BLM is seeking camphost for the 2021 summer season. Host sites have full hook ups . Contact Rocky at RINFANGER@BLM.GOV. if interested.

When I campground hosted at a National Park, I got a hat, shirts and jacket, plus full hook ups. I worked 4 days on and had 4 days off. I got paid $15 for each of the days I worked.

Personally I think it is way too much work to be a campground host for free and especially when the job is often 7 days a week.

We've thought about doing hosting and I have to agree with you. I doubt Rocky has any say in the terms of employment

LOL.....Perhaps they should pay 6 figures with healthcare and 8 weeks Vacation?

You are correct though, Rocky never had any say in the important stuff, that was Bullwinkles job.

The camping fees are included for all days I assume. That would equal quite a lot.

the last time we looked into hosting...and it was a while...illinois considered the "free" campsite as taxable income. best to check.

The BLM gives a free site in a beautiful area. Propane is reimbursed and a reimbursement for lunch on 4 hours or more is paid.
We find it rewarding and it's halfway between Glacier and Yellowstone NP. And most campers are pretty decent folks.

It's not just Illinois. Federal and pretty much any state with an income tax consider it income.

Look up Barter rules with the IRS. You are supposed to estimate the value of the goods and services received and record that as income (minus any allowable deductions).
