This time of year, based on average temperatures of other lakes in the region, Lake Grinnell should likely be about 60°F give or take a few degrees.  That'll wake you right up!!

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.

Penalties can vary by land management agency. You best bet is to contact the Arizona Interagency Wildfire Prevention office or call (877) 864-6985.

Yes, Grand Teton National Park is open year round.  In late October, services will be limited and some roads may be closed.  The town of Jackson is just south of the park and has gas, food, and lodging.  Check out http://www.nps.gov/grte for more information and have a great trip.
