Housing is available to Miller's Landing employees only, as such visitors are not allowed. Employees should not bring pets, but these have been approved in the past on a case by case basis.

   Affordable housing is difficult to find in Seward, though we encourage people to search for off site lodging - employees are in no way required to stay on the premises. Millerís Landing will provide a tent camping area in "tent city for employees " for $100 per month - whether the employee brings his or her own tent or uses one of our wall tents. We also have shared VERY basic bunkhouse rooms with a community kitchen for $200 a month. Rooms are given out by seniority. Some rooms may have up to 3-4 occupants. All employees must provide their own bedding and camping gear.

  RV/Camper space is available in employee designated locations in the campground for $150 a month. Vehicles must be registered and have recent tags and full insurance. Shower and laundry is available in our campground, and while Miller's Landing does not provide tokens for it's employees to use in these facilities (showers and laundry are paid by token) we subsidize the cost of living accordingly. All employees are responsible for their own meals. Housing is not available to relatives, family or friends in the bunkhouse or tent camping areas.
