About Twin Lakes Resort

Twin Lakes Resort was established in 1936 and is located in the Cascade Lakes Region of beautiful Central Oregon. Located on the shores of South Twin Lake, with our RV park close by on the banks of the Deschutes Channel of Wickiup Reservoir, Twin Lakes Resort is famous for fishing and family fun. With our full-service restaurant, java hut, charming country store, and boat rentals, we love serving our cabin and RV guests, tent campers in the nearby forest service campgrounds, and day-use visitors.

The Employee Experience

If you'd like to spend the summer in the outdoors, with hiking, boating, fishing, mountain biking, and camping right outside your doorway, then look no further!

Work-life balance is important to us, which is why our employees get two days off in a row each week to explore the best that Oregon has to offer. Our employees have access to our rental boats, so before or after work you can enjoy an outing on a kayak or paddleboard, or hop in a rowboat to catch some rainbows.

Other perks include free on-site laundry, meal discounts and benefits, sick pay, and awesome co-workers!

Ideal Candidate

Our ideal candidates are hard-working, positive individuals who are willing to jump in and help out as needed. We love hiring good, down-to-earth people who have an appreciation for the outdoors and want to spend their free time hiking, enjoying the lake, and exploring the forest.

Being a team player is essential to fostering an environment where our employees trust each other. While each individual is hired for a particular role, we expect all employees to be willing to pitch in where necessary to help their teammates, whether the tasks are directly related or wholly unrelated to the job you were hired for.  As such, we require all employees to be physically able to do the following.

  • The ability to lift up to 50 lbs
  • The ability to move safely over uneven terrain
  • The ability to be walking or standing for long portions of the day
  • The ability to safely climb ladders
  • The ability to work in extreme weather
  • The ability to respond quickly to sounds and to see and respond to dangerous situations
  • The ability to wear appropriate PPE (masks, gloves) correctly for the duration of your shift
  • The ability to operate a work vehicle or UTV, with a valid drivers license

Throughout the season and especially early and late in the season, employees may be asked to perform functions outside of their normal roles, such as participating in groundskeeping projects (pine needle clean-up, debris removal, etc), participating in maintenance projects (painting, staining, sealing, etc) and cabin cleaning.

Room and Board

We have full or partial RV hookups available for employees, and a shared housing environment that houses up to 5 employees across three bedrooms.  Housing costs vary from approximately $1/day to $8/day depending on the accommodations, however upon completion of your work agreement all housing costs are gifted back to each employee as a bonus.

Pets are only considered for employees living in their own RV.

We also provide a number of staff meals throughout the season, and a 50% discount when ordering off the menu at our restaurant.

Getting Here and Getting Around

We are located in the Deschutes National Forest, about 20-25 minutes from La Pine and Sunriver, and 45-50 minutes outside of Bend. Because of our remote location, we ask that employees bring a personal vehicle.
