Thirteen years back, a couple made the decision to search for a job at a campground, a report said. Bert and Dori Staman love to travel around the country in their RV but could not yet afford to do so full time as they are not yet ready to hang up their boots.

The couple is now a landscaping team for the 58 acres of Jellystone Park in Pennsylvania. The campground is located south of Milton close to the intersection of Routes 405 and 147.

Bert said that  “Our job is to keep the park looking good. The golf cart holds everything needed [like] rakes, edgers, and shovels, space for buckets to collect debris from cutting and pruning shrubs and flowers; also a water tank not needed this year due to sufficient rainfall.”

The park was purchased by a firm known as “Great Escapes RV Resorts.” The Stamans consider the park a destination and they’ve witnessed the young guests grow into adulthood who now bring their children to the park. 

A couple of Yogi Bear statues complete the park. There’s also a pool with a huge sundeck, three areas with playground equipment, a jumping pad, and a foam bubble area.

The recreation building hosts a variety of activities like painting, pumpkin carving, and more. Campers are also invited to decorate their campsites and take part in theme-based weekly events like “Christmas in July”, “Under the Sea”, and more.

This week, the focus is on Halloween and it is the final theme of this season.
