Employee Lodging, Meals and Transportation

Specific meal policies may vary from park to park. Please note that because of the large number of meals prepared each day, we cannot accommodate restricted or vegetarian diets.

Employee lodging facilities are generally dormitory-style facilities with communal baths. Nearly all employees will share a room with a roommate. Housing for couples is limited and available only when both are employed by the Company. Xanterra Travel Collection is not able to provide housing for families with children. Employees are not allowed to keep pets in Company housing.

A limited number of trailer sites with full hook-ups are available for employees who bring their own self-contained recreational vehicle (single body, hard sided with shower/toilet facilities).

Cost of Living

Other amenities include free uniforms, free laundry facilities, free utilities, free satellite access in all dorm rec rooms.

Don’t forget… living at one of these national parks gives you free access to some of the best hiking, climbing, biking, camping, photography, canyoneering, wildlife viewing, bird watching in the world! While the average visitor only has a few days to spend in our National Parks, you have several months. Take full advantage of this amazing opportunity!


Transportation to and from the parks is at the employee’s expense. While it is not necessary, you are encouraged to bring a private vehicle as it will allow you to explore the surrounding areas to the fullest. You will be required to register your vehicle with the Park Service. Public transportation is available to or near the parks. Specific information about transportation to the parks will be sent to you if you are hired.
