Unfortunately we don't have that guide in printed format.  You can explore all parks in the area on this site by clicking on the state and then zoom in.  All public lands (not just national parks) will be there.

Travel well!

Yes, it can hold two tents, as long as they're both not huge! There are four campgrounds in Shenandoah National Park: Mathews Arm (mile 22.1), Big Meadows (mile 51.2), Lewis Mountain (mile 57.5) and Loft Mountain (mile 79.5)

Go to the IDNR website:
http://www.in.gov/dnr/
and look around there.  It is a big organization, so you have to know what kind of job you want and are qualified for - maintenance, enforcement, education, etc.  Indiana government is facing budget shortfalls like most states, so jobs may be in short supply.  As for county jobs, you will have to call or visit the particular county website  - counties do not coordinate job openings with each other.  There is no substitue for getting to know the local workers personally, and volunteering for your favorite organization is a great way to get your foot in the door.  Park agencies always need volunteer help.

Florida manatees are found in shallow, slow-moving rivers, bays, estuaries and coastal water ecosystems. There are several places you can see manatees in their natural habitat. Biscayne National Park is a great place to start. Manatees are also found at Blue Spring State Park. You can see dolphins in Everglades National Park.
