Hog Pen Landing Campground Host Summer 2023

Save to Favorites


For a lucky few, the perfect camping option is serving as a volunteer campground host. The year-round, short-term post, which can last from three months to one year, offers a free campsite in exchange for 30 hours a week of volunteering.

Volunteer camp hosts greet visitors, monitor the site and keep the area orderly, clean bathrooms, and

perform general facility and groundskeeping maintenance. We provide tools and equipment to do the job and reimburse for propane.

Those interested must have an RV or hard top camper, be able to lift 40 lbs and be personable to traveling public. Applicants must pass a federal background check.

Hog Pen Landing offers a boat ramp with direct access to the lake. Hog Pen Landing is a primitive

campground with few amenities. There is no water, sewer or electric currently at the site. Conveniently

located between Jacksonville and Lake City, Florida, it is a popular destination for both local visitors and traveling snowbirds. If you are used to being independent and want a quiet, relaxed campground, Hog Pen may just be for you.
