While we are staying at the SKP Park of the Sierras, RVer Jimmy Smith is off at 7:30 a.m. most weekday mornings to the pole bar where the all-volunteer maintenance crew gathers to review what needs to be accomplished across this 161-acre co-op park.
With only two paid full-time staff (and two part-time), volunteers keep this park running–doing everything from organizing the many community events, to office work, to repairing roads, to cleaning tree roots out of the many drainage pipes.
