Housing & Meals

  • Our associates live either at, or very near, the store where they are working for the season. Depending on your needs, Delaware North will either provide dormitory housing or RV sites. Even though housing is on site, some walking may be required to and from your work area.
  • Dormitories: The dorms are rustic with centrally located shared bathrooms, showers, free laundry facilities and an employee dining room. All associates will have at least one roommate. The dorms are all non-smoking and do not contain air conditioning or kitchen facilities. Guests, family members and pets are not permitted in employee housing. The housing cost is $27.00 per week.
  • RV Sites: For those associates planning to live in their own RV while working for our lodges and Yellowstone General Stores, a site can be provided for a weekly fee ranging from $32.20 to $74.06, plus electric and propane costs. Most RV campgrounds have onsite coin-operated laundry facilities. RV associates arriving before May 1 may have to stay at temporary sites without utilities or hookups until their season RV site is available.
  • Apartments: Associates living in West Yellowstone will share efficiency apartments at a rate of between $42.00 and $67.00 per week, per associate. Each unit has two-to-four occupants. There is a full kitchen and shared bathroom in each apartment, with a shared coin-operated laundry facility in the complex. Apartments are furnished and include dishes, pots and pans and bed linens. All associates living in company housing are required to pay a $200 housing deposit prior to their employment start date. All apartments are non-smoking. Guests, family members and pets are not permitted in employee housing.
  • RV Sites: For those associates planning to live in their own RV while working in West Yellowstone, an RV site will be assigned by management. Associates will be charged between $53.06 and $74.06 per site per week, including electric and propane costs. On-site coin-operated laundry facilities are available at RV parks.
  • Internet: Wi-Fi is not included in the cost of your rent. However, if you wish to get Wi-Fi hooked up in your apartment or RV site, you can do so by contacting the local provider and paying on your own. There is a public library and several Internet cafes in West Yellowstone.
  • Medical: There is a health clinic in West Yellowstone, which opens four days/week most of the year; they are open seven days/week during the summer season.
  • Associates who work at the company’s seasonal properties are provided meals in the Employee Dining Room (EDR) as a term and condition of employment. Each EDR operates on a menu cycle and provides three meals a day, seven days a week. The menu is designed to offer a variety of food choices, but due to the size of staff and facilities, we cannot generally accommodate special dietetic needs.
  • Dormitories: All associates living in the dormitories are required to participate in the full (three meals per day, seven days per week) meal plan at a rate of $61.00 per week.
  • RVs: Associates living in RVs also have the option to enroll in the full meal plan at a cost of $61.00 per week.
  • YGS Technology Internet: Most dorms have both a computer with Internet access and a television with satellite service. Internet service is provided via satellite and is extremely limited. It is slow, unreliable and has a daily threshold of information that can be downloaded. There is a 24-hour reset period if the daily download threshold is crossed and, during this time, the Internet connection will not work. If you need daily access to the Internet, Yellowstone may not be the best fit for you.
  • Telephones: Cell phone service is intermittent or non-existent at many Park locations. Verizon and AT&T tend to have the best reception in West Yellowstone, but reception is further limited in the Park with no service in many locations. We recommend bringing a pre-paid calling card as there are pay telephones in each dormitory.
