Mesa Falls Visitor Center Assistant

Save to Favorites

USDA Forest Service

Upper Mesa Falls is a remote site with a Visitor Center and amazing waterfall. It is a very busy place. We are looking for a special person or couple who wants to get back to the simple life in the woods away from cell phones, TV, and internet. Duties would be light maintenance, litter pick up, talking to visitors about the site and the animals and plants of the greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. We are a fee site, and there could be some duties related to that.

At the present time, we have two RV pads with water, sewer, and electric hook ups; no cell or satellite is available on site. We are looking for someone to live on site for security reasons, and expect 20-25 hours help with site maintenance, and visitor information services in the visitor center. If no cell service is unacceptable, we do have another RV site at the Ranger Station in Island Park. Season runs from May 25 th or so until September 30, 3 or 4 days week.

Due to Coronavirus the Visitor Center was not open to the public in 2021. Our retail store was open to visitors who were masked. We have moved most of our interpretive activities outside to our front porch. We will see what 2022 brings.
