    Description

    Hi. My name is Brenda and I live in the NWT. I will be running a beautiful campground surrounded by beautiful trails and water falls. The guests who come and camp are from all over ie. United States, Germany, Switzerland etc. The campground has a really nice shower house there are 28 sites, beautiful day use and let's not forget our beautiful water falls. There is a lot of nature, hiking trails. There is a resident house wear u would stay with me and hubby. I really push customer service. Greeting the campers, when we can we escort them on our golf cart to there sites. Also, we deliver the fire wood to them on the golf cart. I make home made pies and sell to them. Sometimes we surprise our campers with treats. I also have BBQ for the campers on Canada day, Parks Day and aboriginal Day. There is a real nice main office. If u are out going love dealing with people love the nature u would not be disappointed spending time with us. A camper called us the resort of the North. I could not say it any better. We are 35 min away from the small town. We are looking for someone to help in the office and on the grounds . It is open May 17 2018 to Sept 17, 2018. A little about myself. I once was a exchange student and lived in Mexico for a year, I am out going, love the nature. I Have a hubby and we hve a party toy poodle named Teakie. We enjoy meeting new people from all over the world. The first year we ran the resort we were in a magazine in the North called Up Here. The second year we were chosen as camp ground operater of the year a ward. Are standards are high but at the same time we have fun. As travelers travel sometimes 6 months to a year at a time we like to give them a home away from home in campground style. If this sounds like something tht u would like and also see part of the NWT please email me. We would love to hear from you.
