Volunteer Opportunities at Hot Springs National Park
As a Volunteer in Parks-VIP- at Hot Springs National Park, you can make a real difference. VIPs work side by side with the National Park Service staff to help visitors enjoy and learn about the park in ways that preserve it for future generations. Think how much you will learn about the park by contributing to its successful operation.
The park needs Campground Hosts for the summer months (May 1st thru August 30th) at Gulpha Gorge Campground. For more information about what a Campground Host does, please read this job description.
For more information on the park's volunteer program, contact Toni McDowell, Volunteer Coordinator. You may also call her at (501) 620-6744.
