The Creekside Philosophy – “Work Hard, Play Hard, Have Fun!"

The Creekside is owned and operated by two best friends. We started in 1997 with only the sweat of our brow and a dream. As one of the last private employers in the area, we strive to be the best. This means paying a good wage, providing some of the best housing in the area, and most of all creating an environment that is encouraging, respectful, and caring. We acknowledge that a happy crew makes happy customers, therefore making happy owners.

Our expectations are simple: everybody works. Crew members must be professional, have a GREAT attitude, and be good ambassadors of the “Creekside”. A sense of place grows from the earnest work of maintaining this enterprise, the friendships that grow, and our commitment to provide the best experience for our guests in a setting that is beyond compare. Come work in a place surrounded by astonishing beauty, with fantastic people, while learning new things….and maybe something new about yourself.
