Hog Pen Landing Campground Host
ORGANIZATION: USDA Forest Service
Please visit the new page to apply.
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 24
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.
