The Employee Experience

Work and play go hand and hand at Ktaadn Resorts. No matter what position you are interested in, you will gain valuable skills with like minded people. 

Ideal Candidate

While there are a lot of positions to fill at our company, all of them require a love for the outdoors and a passion for sharing it with our guests. We pride ourselves on having a staff that works as a team. With many moving parts to our company, it is important to be flexible and supportive of other staff members. 

Room and Board

The 2023 summer cost of rent at our campground was $75. Cost for 2024 summer has not been set, but likely will be similar. This is to cover the cost of using the amenities at the campground. 

Housing at the campground is only available in summer months. 

Employee Perks

25% discount our store (exceptions apply), 25% discount on restaurant items (50% discount at the pizzeria when working), staff beers and lodging and rafting trips. 

Getting Here and Getting Around

Having a personal vehicle is recommended as there is very limited public transportation. However, if you do not have a vehicle of your own usually we can find a way to assist you into getting where you need to go. 

For Fun

If you are an outdoor enthusiast Millinocket has many options for you. White water rafting on the Penobscot River will not disappoint you with the continuous adrenaline rush of class II-V rapids. Hiking and mountain biking trails have been built right on property along with access to canoes, kayaks and SUP for a relaxing lake paddle. Baxter State Park is just a couple miles away and views of Katahdin (the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail) can be seen from any of out locations.
