    Please share your comments about your experience : I've been working at Saco River Camping Area for seven years now, and it's the family-friendly environment and our fantastic team that makes each season more and more enjoyable. I've had the chance to meet several workampers over the years, and many staff members have returned year after year. Our front desk manager has been here for over three years and is very welcoming to any new employees that join the team. Our general manager, who happens to be new this year, has been doing a great job of both organizing campground operations and consistently checking in with us to make sure we're all doing well. Our former manager was with us for six seasons before retiring and was a great link in our team. Saco River Camping Area is different than other places I've worked at before. The guests are pleasant and often enjoy the fun-filled family environment that always seems to remain a constant at the campground. I've had the opportunity to meet dozens of guests who return each year, and I'm always excited to see new and familiar faces each season.

    Did you receive any special benefits or perks while workamping? : There are several perks that come hand-in-hand with a position at Saco River Camping Area. We have free access to WiFi and Cable TV which features dozens of channels. We're also permitted to have some visitors, so it's nice to be able to have family up during my days off. The management team is great and often takes time to check in with employees to recognize how much our efforts both matter and provide to the future of the business.

    Please share your comments about your experience : I have been working here since the beginning of the season. What a great place to work the owners and their family's help every weekend and are super friendly. They put endless amounts of money into the park and it shows in all aspects. The manager Andy is always helping out doing maintenance cleaning bathrooms and working in the store. There isnt a better campground I have worked for in my 5 years working at camps. Everyone works well as a team helping each other out. I plan to return next season since this place is such a great place to work!
