Kenai Riverside Campground Jobs

Alaska Wildland Adventures (AWA) owns and operates the Kenai Riverside Campground (KRC).  Kenai Riverside Campground is a separate operation, but there is a great deal of interchange between Kenai Riverside Lodge (AWA's headquarters for summer operations) and KRC. 

Kenai Riverside Campground & RV Park is nestled on the banks of the world-famous (and absolutely stunning) Kenai River, in Cooper Landing, Alaska, the heart of the Kenai Peninsula. Host to 18 RV sites with 20/30 amp hook-up, this campground on the river is a great spot to spend the night, or the summer!  Tent sites are also available as well as 6 Bed and Breakfast rooms, with clean bathrooms, hot showers and a nice lounge. 

KRC serves as a hub for independent travellers and many choose from a variety of our day activities including hiking and rafting with Alaska Wildland Adventures.  A big part of working at this location is helping these independent travellers to design their own adventure.   

In general, the staff here at KRC tends to be very small, consisting of only 3 employees.  Therefore, it is essential that employees have a great attitude towards all tasks which can range from picking up trash, providing customer service, serving breakfast, basic hospitality duties, gardening, recycling and running to town for errands.

Kenai Riverside Campground Community Living Mission Statement

At Alaska Wildland Adventures, we seek highly motivated, personable and respectful employees to spend their summers with us. We have high standards from all staff in community relations, group living skills, and stewardship of the surrounding land.

Community Relations:

Our facility is located in the small community of Cooper Landing, and with our summer staff numbering over 65 people, our impact on our neighbors can be significant and potentially negative. We ask that staff members respect the community and use discretion when attending public venues in the town, whether they are the library, grocery store, a softball game or local restaurants and bars. As a representative of Alaska Wildland Adventures, be considerate and courteous to the community, both on and off duty.

Group Living:

At Alaska Wildland Adventures' Riverside Camp, staff are housed in two-person Yukon tents with limited amenities. Most creature comforts are available in facilities shared by staff, such as the Lounge, where meals are served; the bathroom, with showers, toilets, and sinks for staff; and the Palace, for reading, game playing and movie watching.

We become family-like in many ways, for better or worse, during our time at this facility. This requires respect for oneself as well as peers and co-workers. We have established guidelines for the communal areas to provide a positive group living experience for all staff members, including quiet hours and housekeeping of communal areas. You will be asked to take part in communal living maintenance throughout the season. These guidelines may be less than or more than what you do in your own space. We try to allow for the greatest flexibility with a minimal impact on the health and well-being of the entire 


In order to provide excellent customer service to our guests and promote a stable group living environment, we strongly encourage staff to explore and take advantage of the numerous recreational opportunities that abound in the local area. Quality days off are needed to maintain the busy pace of our operations. Staff must be self-motivated to get out and appreciate the surrounding landscape, and learn what the Kenai Peninsula has to offer. The scenic natural beauty and grandeur of Alaska is a primary attraction for all of our staff, and we ask that our employees respect and care for this natural resource to benefit future generations.

The success of Alaska Wildland Adventures depends on the actions of our high quality staff. We ask all staff to use tact, respect and common sense during all interactions with the community of Cooper Landing, other staff members and the surrounding landscape. Staff members ability to co-exist harmoniously with other staff is equally important as delivering top quality service to our clientele.
