Stanislaus River Parks - McHenry Avenue Recreation Area
Please visit the new page to apply.
Volunteers are needed for three-month terms for two separate host sites. Volunteer park hosts ensure that the park entrance gate opens in the morning and is secured at sunset. They conduct periodic walkthroughs of the park, greet the public and answer questions. Park hosts do not enforce regulations; however, they are expected to be additional eyes and ears of the park rangers. Park hosts may be needed to assist during emergencies.
Hosts’ days off are either Monday to Tuesday or Wednesday to Thursday.
McHenry Avenue Recreation Area is a popular day use spot with 7 boat-in environmental tent camping sites. McHenry Avenue Recreation Area has high visitation from Memorial weekend through Labor Day, and park hosts will be required to operate the entrance booth as needed. Reservations are required 14 days in advance through Recreation.gov ONLY. (In the last 3 years the campground has not reached full capacity, so the host duties are primarily park host not camp host). The fall and winter seasons see moderate to low visitation.
In exchange for volunteer services, hosts will be provided with, an RV site, electricity, water, and sewage at no charge. The host is required to maintain a telephone at their own expense. The park address is 24300 East River Road, Escalon, CA, 95320.
