The campsites in this particular National Park are all unserviced, but each park is different and you'd have to look up the park you're interested in visiting to get some accurate details. You can buy an annual pass valid for Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia for half price if you do it before June 30th, so that's your best bet if your going to be in the park for more than two nights.
Sherry thought we had a typical "workamper" type of job, where you normally work 20 or so hours per work per week in exchange for a full service campsite.
No, this is a full time job, with a full time salary. I am on duty 24/7, while Ruth's contract essentially allows her to work minimum 40 hours per week, but with allowance to do more than that if the work is there to be done.
I do not get regular days off. In fact, I would expect that I won't get days off at all during July and August, but we knew that coming into it. No worries, I get lots of days off in the winter (smile).
Oh, and Sherry, we did a lot of boondocking in Nova Scotia back in the April, May, June period of 2011 so maybe you want to go back to our archives and look at some of the great spots we found to stay overnight for free back then.
Ruth has almost finished trimming and cutting up the brush in our boat trailer parking area. It's actually part of our park entrance so you see it when you come in. Nice to have it looking better!
This was taken June 6th.
Meanwhile, I graded the road that leads to the west cabins, and I'll do the lakeside road and fill some potholes today, if the rain holds off! Had a big thunderstorm roll through early this morning with lots of loud cracks of thunder! I also installed the base of some new digger toys we bought for the playground. I'll get some photos of them today if the concrete is dry enough to finish installing them.
Our beaver friends were back on shore again last night...
Heading back into the lake.
