Camp and Site Host volunteers provide services in partnership with Park Staff, and provide a readily available, hospitable presence in campgrounds and parks.

The site host is primarily responsible for being helpful, courteous and accessible to park visitors and neighbors; maintaining cleanliness of public restrooms and performing minor landscaping and maintenance tasks; opening and closing the park entrance gate daily; and reporting any suspicious or illegal activity during or after-hours in the Park to Park Ranger staff or other law enforcement agencies.

Covid-19 safety protocols are in place to keep staff and volunteers safe.
