Billie - Yes I worked at Glacier Park Lodge in East; love the location.  Bring your golf clubs.  The RV park needs redoing unless they did it recently, but the friends you make will make it worthwhile.  Be sure to eat in the EDR if you are offered vouchers because you get a chance to meet more people at meals.  Its an amazingly beautiful place to live and work.  Playing cards in the breezeway on a rainy day brings back good memories, as does playing golf, fishing and hiking the park.  Will go back some day but am exploring new "territory" on my bucket list - Nova Scotia this year.  Keep me posted on what you think.

Billie thanks for the welcome, I will be working at Grand Teton National Park as a plumber, my wife will probably be working in food service. This is also our first year doing this kind of thing. I am starting to get anxious to get on the road. I hope that it will turn out to be a great experience. Good luck and hope you have a fantastic summer. Garlan

There are national forest campgrounds in Hungry Horse, only 10 miles from the park. There are some other small mom & pop hotels, motels and campgrounds in Coram, Essex, Hungry Horse and Columbia Falls. On the East Side of the park (more remote), there are some places in St. Mary and Babb. You should be able to find business online if you look in those towns. They are all within 30 minutes of the park. Offhand, I know of Glacier Rafting, Izaak Walton Inn, Tamarack Lodge and St. Mary Lodge. Best of luck.

Hi Billie
I would like to do it again .... however my next gig will be in Alaska! After that I might return to Yellowstone or the Grand Tetons, or I may opt to hang up my seasonal work cap :-) As for tips, the first step is securing a job. Start applying the first of January to those locations you most want to work at. Keep in mind you will not be paid much (usually minimum wage) so it is difficult to save a lot of money. If you must have substantial income to pay bills back home, then seasonal work may not be for you. I basically broke even the summer I worked at Yellowstone (but had the best summer of my life!).
