With over 2 million acres of land to explore, beautiful animals and half of the world’s thermal features you’ll never run out of exciting sights to discover! Our summer season positions typically run from mid-April through late October.
Yellowstone National Park Lodges runs lodging and restaurant operations at 6 different locations within the park, which are staffed by thousands of seasonal employees each year. The recreation department is responsible for planning and implementing employee activities, special events and trips for these employees, as well the rental of camping and hiking equipment.
