Please visit the new page to apply.
Roughly 30 minutes from Buchanan, Virginia this campground is located along the edge of North Creek, offering shady campsites and a relaxed atmosphere. Prop your feet up and listen to the stream as it gurgles past, or take advantage of the fishing at your door. While the area is very popular for trout fishing, there are also numerous scenic hiking trails nearby. Families also like to enjoy a day floating on the nearby James River.
Our volunteers are provided with an RV campsite (complete with water, electric, and sewer hook-ups). Satellite tv and cellular phone service is not reliable and is dependent on your carrier, your location in the campground and the weather. Landline telephone, Wi-fi and Laundry facilities are NOT available on site. However, volunteers may use the facilities at nearby Cave Mountain Lake Campground. We have 1 campsite available for volunteers from April through October. In exchange for the free campsite and utilities, we ask our volunteers to help out at least four hours per day each, five days per week per person. Due to weekends being our busiest time, we will schedule "days off" for less busy weekdays. Sometimes needs change within the recreation area, and you may be asked to assist with volunteer responsibilities other than what you initially "signed up" for. Just let me know the recreation area/campground where you would like to volunteer, what type of position suits your interests and when you would be interested in volunteering (specific dates). To assist with scheduling and site availability, we request that our volunteers stay at least 4 weeks, typically arriving at the first of the month and leaving at the end of the month.
* Note that all volunteer positions require a degree of physical effort to complete common tasks. In the event that additional help is needed for a project, you may be asked to assist with tasks not part of your daily routine. Examples include: weeding and mowing, minor carpentry and minor plumbing assistance.*
