For employees working 63 hours or less during a pay period, the amount of the deduction is prorated based on actual hours worked.

For employees who have arranged with their hiring department to bring their own RV, the site rental will vary from $130.00 to $141.00 per pay period (two weeks) and will be deducted from their paycheck. Some sites require separate billing for utilities and exact deductions will be specified in your employee agreement.

Laundry facilities are available on location.

Connecting to the world is not like home! Yellowstone is a wilderness area, and reception for radio is limited. Reception for television is non-existent! Employees may bring their own music to listen to and television/DVD/VCR combo units are usually available for rent on location, along with a variety of movie rentals.

Cell phone service ranges from "not great" to "non-existent". Many employees bring and use cell phones with varying amounts of success. At this time, there are two cell companies with tower service in the park. Verizon on the eastern and northern portions and Cellular One on the southern end of the park. Each location has payphones located in employee housing, so be sure to bring a pre-paid phone card to call home! Limited Internet access is included with your housing fee.

Getting Here and Getting Around

Applicants are responsible for their own transportation to Yellowstone. A personal vehicle is not necessary, though helpful to access the Park and surrounding areas on days off

Yellowstone is one of the best places in the world to just get outside! There are many reasons why the Park has been referred to as a "Wonderland" over the decades. Visitors have known since the 1700's that this place is different, exciting, enchanting.

What else is there to do...? Gateway towns surround the Yellowstone area. Cody and Jackson, Wyoming and West Yellowstone and Gardiner, Montana are closest to its entrances. Bozeman and Livingston, Montana are within driving distance.
