Hosts help visitors in a variety of ways. They share refuge wildlife, recreation, and regulatory information with visitors. They maintain campground facilities including cleaning restrooms, litter pick up, and facility maintenance. Hosts also sell firewood bundles. Hosts work a four-day work week with days off on weekdays (usually Tues./Weds.). Often, work day shifts are split with hosts working mornings and evenings, when visitors are most frequently in the campgrounds. Host hospitality in refuge campgrounds leaves a lasting positive memory for refuge visitors.

Working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the premier government agency dedicated to the conservation, protection, and enhancement of fish, wildlife and plants, and their habitats. We are the only agency in the federal government whose primary responsibility is the conservation and management of these important natural resources for the American public.
The agency includes both the National Wildlife Refuge System and the National Fish Hatchery System.
The Service's origins date back to 1871 when Congress established the U.S. Fish Commission to study the decrease in the nation’s food fishes and recommend ways to reverse that decline. (More on our history below.) Today, we are a diverse and largely decentralized organization, employing about 8,000 dedicated professionals working out of facilities across the country.
