Seasonal Camper Information


Please welcome our new work campers: Ken and Linda.

HI everyone!  We are soooo looking forward to our new work camping gig at Raystown! 

We have been work camping for approximately 3 years and can honestly say it is a life experience that has been very good to us.  We have been from the east coast to the west coast meeting so many good people all along the way.

Ken was raised in Mississippi on a family farm with 4 other siblings.  This is where he was introduced to hard work and experience in repairing just about anything you can think of. He joined the Navy and was a P-3 Flight Engineer for 10 years which is where we met in California. Ken has a daughter and 2 grandsons.

I was born and raised in Wichita, Ks. with 2 sisters and 1 brother.  Went to business college in Kansas City, Mo.  I was divorced with 2 kiddos and a secretary for a company working with the Navy at Moffett Field and fell madly in love with this wonderful man at first sight.  And the rest is history.  LOL
I have two grown children, a daughter with 2 children and 1 great grandson, and a son with 2 grown children.

We had a landscaping business while we lived in Calif.  We decided to move to AZ. and lived in Yuma for a while where Ken learned the trade of being a locksmith.  Moved back to Mississippi for 3 years and then moved to Nevada where he was the maintenance manager for the Trex decking plant in Fernley, NV.  This is where we retired and decided to become fulltime RV’ers and learned about the work camper program, and the rest is history.  Work Camping has been good to us and for us.  Wouldn’t trade our lifestyle for anything.  We look forward to meeting everyone!

Please welcome back Dan & Margie Schaller who will be re-joining us as work campers for the 2018 season. 

"Hi Everyone! We will be working with Ben and Janet to make this camping season the best ever. We're  from Eastern PA - the Pocono Mountains. We are full time RV'ers  and like to spend our winters in Florida.  But we stayed in PA this year to care for an ailing family member. Dan enjoys hunting, fishing and golf.  Margie enjoys reading,  cooking,  and baking. Well be moving back in March and we are  looking forward to seeing you all again and meeting new friends. Happy camping!" -

Dan and Margie.


We are pleased that Tom Gourdin will back with us again for his 9th season. He is now with us all year 'round! Thanks Tom!
