The average salary for a park range is $30,000 a year. An experienced ranger could make between $47,000 to $50,000 annually. State park rangers typically earn less than national park rangers.
There are many different positions that are called “park ranger.” Park rangers can be law enforcement officers, interpretation specialists, backcountry rangers and/or volunteer coordinators. Some of these positions work year round (permanent) and receive benefits such as health insurance and retirement, while other positions only work 3-6 months (temporary) and are not able to receive benefits.
Salaries can range dramatically, from $9.50 per hour (40 hrs per week for 3 months = $4560) to $20+ per hour for 52 weeks per year plus benefits.
Most people start out working temporary positions before working their way into a permanent position. Many people also start out as Student Conservation Association Volunteers (SCA – link below).
