Workamping

Workamping site with RV - USFWS.

 

The staff at Wallkill River would welcome the opportunity to work with you. A complete hook-up; water, electricity, and free propane is provided in exchange for 24 hours per week for a single volunteer and 32 hours per week for a volunteer couple. There are numerous projects to utilize your time and talents such as maintaining hiking trails, outdoor educational programs, and handyman type maintenance. 

The campsites are available from May through October.

The refuge is located in rural northern New Jersey/southeastern New York with lots of opportunities nearby for hiking, fishing and other outdoor activities. Nearest grocery store is approximately 10 minutes, major shopping about 20 minutes away and only 1 1/2 hours from NYC.
