April 22, 2014 -Sedro Woolley, WA–Would you like to live amidst the grandeur of the North Cascades, while interacting with campers and visitors to North Cascades National Park and Ross Lake National Recreation Area? If so, there is an opportunity to spend this summer at Colonial Creek Campground on scenic Diablo Lake with free utilities and hook-up provided.
While living in your recreational vehicle at our host campsite, we’ll ask for a commitment of 32 hours weekly to cover peak hours from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and from 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. for four days each week. There may also be an opportunity to work at Newhalem Campground as well.
While representing the National Park Service, your main duties will include greeting visitors, providing campground and area information, and registering campers. You will work as part of a team of Rangers and Maintenance Staff to provide quality customer service to the visiting public. A positive demeanor and excellent communication skills are a must. Unfortunately there is no WI-FI or cell phone signals are available at the site, although there is cell service in Newhalem and Marblemount, WA.

Karen Taylor-Goodrich, North Cascades National Park Service Complex Superintendent said, “Campground Hosts are a highly appreciated and vital part of our ability to provide visitors with information and assistance in making their park visit a memorable experience.”
