We are currently camp-hosting at a very large park. Over 1300 spaces! Yes I said 1300! So every day is busy and tiring. Especially in 95% heat. We clean spaces and fire-pits, deal with camper issues and concerns, about 6 hours per day and it is hot, dirty and thirsty work.
As we travel the campground we meet many different people. Most are wonderful, friendly and fun. Some aren’t but that is OK. We try to take care of all their needs no matter the attitude.
On our journey every day we are offered plenty of food and water. That is so appreciated. A hot dog, hamburger and a bottle of ice cold water is very welcome. Some very nice people from Canada twice a day gave us home made smoked meats, cheese and fruit trays! We have also gotten cash tips for helping folks put up tents, direct them into their space and other issues.
We also find change left for us on the picnic tables. Not much but it all adds up. They also leave their cans and bottles for us to recycle. We often average about $50 a week extra with all these perks.
Do you get tips from campers? Do you tip or feed Camp-hosts where you stay? Have you ever even thought about it?
