RV Park Life

The GTLC Employee RV Park has a limited number of sites available. There are water, electric (30 and 50 amp), and sewer hookups at each site. These are suitable only for hard sided, fully self-contained RV’s (no tents or pop-up campers). Resident comfort stations are located throughout the RV Park and provide laundry, shower facilities and limited Wi-Fi Internet (except at Flagg Ranch.)


All RV sites are charged a daily fee of $8.50 per day at Colter Bay Village and $7.50 per day at Flagg Ranch. This is a per site fee. Two pets are allowed per RV site and must comply with company and NPS guidelines. Guests are allowed to visit and stay in employee RVs but must register with the Employee RV Park Manager, and may stay no longer than seven days. RV employees are not enrolled in the weekly meal program but do have the option to purchase meals in order to eat in the Employee Dining Room.


All RV sites are assigned by Human Resources. Specific site requests are not guaranteed. We have limited space in the RV Park, so please let the Hiring Manager know if you would like to live in the Employee RV Park during the interview process.

There are many local banks in the town of Jackson. There are no banks within the Park, so you will need to go to town to set up a bank account. If you choose to have your paycheck deposited directly into a bank account, you can set this up at check-in or at any time during the season. It takes two pay periods to be activated. Please note that there is NO Bank of America in Jackson. The closest one is 2.5 hours away in Idaho Falls, ID. 



Get paid

Paychecks are distributed every 2 weeks on Fridays (one week after pay period end). It is possible, depending on your arrival date, to work 2-3 weeks before receiving your first paycheck, so please try to arrive with some extra money to cover this time period for any expenditures you might have.



Daily Shuttle Service

Employees are provided a daily shuttle service for the surrounding areas free of charge.
