If you love Michigan’s great outdoors and are looking for a position with flexible hours, join the more than 1,200 seasonal park workers hired each spring/summer/fall to work in Michigan state parks and state harbors.

These positions truly can make a difference in helping people fall in love with nature, camping, hiking, boating and more, and might just start you on a lifelong career path, too. In fact, many DNR Parks and Recreation Division employees started their careers as seasonal park workers and then – after gaining valuable experience – transitioned to rangers, park supervisors, accountants, trail coordinators and many other positions.
