Do I have to provide my own transportation inside the campgrounds or between campgrounds if I cover more than facility?

With very few exceptions you will be provided with a golf cart to do your rounds in the campground or if covering more than one facility then a company vehicle is provided. In the rare exception of having to use your personal transportation then you will be compensated.

What do we need to do to keep the campsites up to standards?

Check campsites after they are vacated and before the next camper arrives.  Make sure any trash/debris is removed from the campsite, including the fire ring (ashes need to be cleaned out when 3/4 full).  Take a good look around the site to make sure there are no unsafe conditions existing (trip hazards, broken or loose table seats/tops, etc. look up as well to make sure there are no tree hazards.

When a campsite is vacant is the time to do any needed trimming - do not trim when a site is occupied.

Will I have to purchase the needed supplies for maintaining the restrooms and sites?

No, any supplies or equipment needed to maintain the restrooms and campsites are furnished by the Colorado Recreation Company.

What does your company offer that others do not?

We have been in the recreation industry since 2008 when we were originally called 'Ortega Parks'. We strive to offer great benefits as well as wages and transparency.
