Save to Favorites


Applicants with partners/spouses wanting to host together should apply as separate individuals and provide at least 3 professional references each! This will help better feature each person's unique skills and abilities.

Hosting requires excellent customer service skills, a friendly and patient personality, the willingness and ability to perform daily cleaning and light maintenance, who also love being good stewards of the land. Host positions will be filled with individuals/pairs who own their own accommodation (RV/Camper/Motorhome) to live on site; tents are not permitted. An RV pad is provided at the Coyote Ranger District Office with electricity, water, and trash services. Phone and internet are available - however, cell phone coverage is limited.

The Rio Chama corridor managed by the USFS includes a 25 site primitive campground with no hook-ups, a dispersed camping area, and kayak/raft day-use launch sites. The area attracts campers, rafters, CDT hikers, painters, photographers, fishermen, and travelers.

To learn more:

The host will receive fee-free camping as well as a modest daily stipend.

Note: Pets permitted with proper vaccination documents, and rules apply.
