Calling America’s adventurers: Get paid to review the country’s National Parks

By: Christina Davies
Updated on: January 05, 2024

Fancy yourself as the next Christopher Columbus? We have the job for you. We are looking to recruit a self-proclaimed adventurer who is willing to travel around the U.S and review all 63 National Parks.

We are looking for someone who has a love for the great outdoors, an explorer who spends their free time immersing themselves in nature, forever searching for picturesque views. This job role will allow the successful applicant to visit the best spots in the United States – from the Grand Canyon to the Everglades, gathering research to promote the beauty of America, and all it has to offer.

Our listing states that the successful candidate will have the opportunity to travel around the country for 18 months, and will need to ‘put their hiking boots to good use’ to earn the $200 each week stipend, plus expenses.

If successful, you will be required to document your experience in each National Park via detailed reviews and photographs, which will be the focal point of an in-depth guide on the Lucky Mag website. 

To apply for the role, you can do so here:

Applications close July 10th.

Government records show there were over 297 million recreation visits to National Parks in 2021*, that’s a 20% increase from the previous year when facilities were forced to shut down due to Covid-19. The guide created from this research aims to promote further visitation, and continue to increase the number of visitors each year. 

If selected, you will be reviewing the parks over an 18 month period, and will experience various types of seasonal weather conditions, to prove National Parks are not just desirable during the warmer months, but throughout the year.

You will be asked to research and review the activities available at each National Park, such as cycling, tours, and kayaking, as well as public facilities, hiking trails, cycling routes, scenery throughout the park, accessibility, and suitability for solo travelers, families, and large groups. 

You will also be responsible for speaking to locals and those who work within the National Parks, to uncover their stories and provide a rich background for each area.

All expenses will be covered, including the cost of accommodation and transport between the parks, as well as an additional $500 for each review submitted. 

As part of the application process, you must provide a 200 word summary of why you believe you would be best suited for the role, and provide a brief description of your favorite adventure. 

The cutoff date for applications is July 10th 2024, with the successful candidate being selected by the end of July. Applicants must be 21 and over, fluent in written and verbal English, and absolutely must have an ‘adventurous spirit’. 

Christina Davies, editor-in-chief at Lucky Mag, said,

“At Lucky Mag, we’re all about providing content that is both detailed and reliable. We want to promote the natural beauty that’s all around us, and thought it would be a great opportunity for a member of the public to provide their honest, firsthand experience – especially someone who loves the great outdoors! After all, what better way to spend 18 months than exploring America’s most stunning areas of conservation?”

“Our aim is to curate what we hope will be the most accurate and valuable list of National Parks yet, and provide our readers with a unique view of some of the country’s most spectacular scenery. So, if you have a passion for all things adventure, then please apply now!”
