Welcome To American Sunset RV and Tent Resort

Located on the coast in Westport and Grays Harbor County, Washington

Thank you for taking the time to look at our site and consider being a working member of our crew. We hope that you will also take the time to look at various photo galleries and see what wonders Westport, Grays Harbor County, and Washington State have to offer to you in terms of recreation and enjoyment.

Those web sites are www.graysharbortourism.com and www.experiencewa.com.

Here in Westport (population 2450), we have mild summers ranging from 50 degrees at night to 75 degrees during the day. We have the cleanest air in the country thanks to the Olympic Peninsula. Summer is balmy with occasional rain or misty marine layers. Elk herds roam the grass islands and daily tides bring in seashells, sand dollars, and drift wood. There are numerous summer events to entertain and our marina has a very active commercial fishing fleet. The marina has a variety of restaurants and shops, and 21 public docks where you can catch Dungeness crabs, perch, several beach locations for clamming (razor, steamer, cockles), and sport fishing for bottom fish, salmon, and tuna.

Our winters are somewhat mild with some wind and rain and temperatures range from 40 degrees at night to 55 degrees during the day. Clouds insulate us and rain refreshes our air and forests. There are several winter events to participate in, especially in December

For the exercise minded, we have hiking trails, biking trails, tennis courts, and a fabulous YMCA in Aberdeen with a wave pool and pipeline slides. We have no traffic jams, only one stop light in the whole town, a laid back coastal atmosphere, theaters and shopping close by, local doctors and dentist, and a large modern hospital in Aberdeen. There’s something for everyone here on the Coast

About American Sunset RV Resort

Job Description, Compensation, Flexible Start and Departure Dates

American Sunset is Westport’s largest privately owned campground, with the highest rating in the area, open 362 days a year. We have 32 acres with six acres for RVs and six acres for tenting. A quick look at our maps will show you the layout. The tent area is primitive forest and the RV sites are full amenities. We have three bathrooms from small to large and a mid-sized swimming pool. The pool and its associated bathroom are seasonal for the summer only. 20/30/50 amps are at each site, as well as WiFi and 22 channels of satellite TV. Hardwired telephone hookups are at 60 sites. We employ six sets of Workampers in summer and winter seasons

During our low season (winter is ~mid-September to mid-April), we catch up on things that could be put on the back burner until summer drew to a close. Some of those things are painting and repairing picnic tables, spreading grass seed and fertilizer, trimming trees, bundling firewood, touching up the interiors of buildings, and whatever else someone has noticed that needs some TLC

The office is open from 9a.m. to 11 p.m. from May through September, having two shifts and 9a.m. to 6p.m October through April, having one shift, with the owners or managers doing the closings. Each couple works the same shift and days, two consecutive days per week, six hours of each day starting at 9a.m., or 3p.m., in three hour segments, having one hour off for lunch, with the ladies in the office and the gents in the shops and on the grounds. The ladies routinely operate the reservation system, sweep and dust our little camp store, help arrange goods in the store, answer the phone, greet our incoming guests and answer their questions. Routine duties for the gents are (as needed) empty trash cans, sweep and mop the two open restrooms, pump propane, bundle and deliver firewood, wipe down laundry machines and floor, and read electric meters. You will be compensated with an RV site and full utilities including propane. You also get a 10% discount in our store. If we have three or more couples, we will set up a rotating schedule that allows you to get a large group of days off. This allows folks to experience Washington, visit with relatives, take a cruise ship, or do whatever else you can think of. There is always the possibility of extending your assignment if you really liked your stay with us. Let us know if this sounds like a place you’d like to experience

Please send or e-mail a resume and photo of yourselves, your rig, and your pets and call us if you have questions. We prefer non-smokers. Interviews are by telephone and we certainly look forward to hearing from you
