Campground Host Opportunities at Lassen Volcanic National Park Outdoor adventure awaits you this summer! Here’s an opportunity to live and work at one of Lassen Volcanic National Park’s magnificent campgrounds. “Volunteers can enjoy the park’s cool summer temperatures, miles of hiking trails, mountain lakes, and volcanic landscapes while assisting park staff and campers,” said Park Superintendent Mary G. Martin.
Campground Hosts walk the campgrounds, answer visitor questions, distribute information, check regulation compliance, check in campers with campsite reservations, keep statistics, and assist with fee collection. Positions are available in several campgrounds which vary in size, location, and visitation. Commitments vary from two to four months, May through September. Applicants should have a self- contained recreation vehicle. A campsite with water and sewer is provided.
For more information about these and other volunteer opportunities, please contact the Park Volunteer Program Manager at 530/595- 4444 extension 5133. - NPS
