Please visit the new page to apply.
The Stanislaus National Forest offers a full range of year-round recreation opportunities. The network of trans-Sierra highways, forest roads and trails encourages discovery of nature and history, creating family traditions and lifetime memories. Opportunities abound for visitors to expand their understanding of the natural world and to strengthen their connection to the land, now and for the future. The general host season is May - September.
The Stanislaus National Forest is seeking campground hosts who can represent the Forest Service in a professional and courteous manner. Hosts are often the first Forest Service representative that guests will encounter. They should interact regularly with the public during the day and make full rounds through the campground at least twice a day. Hosts must set a positive camping example by maintaining a neat, clean and organized campsite area.
Campground hosts are responsible for assisting the Forest Service with the maintenance of campground restrooms and campground facilities. Maintenance responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
- Cleaning restrooms
- Picking up trash in the campground and fire rings
- Raking flammable materials away from fire rings
- Maintaining/painting/posting signs and other infrastructure.
Hosts perform daily responsibilities independently without direct supervision. It is necessary for the camp host to learn the rules and regulations of the recreation area including campgrounds, day use sites, and the general recreation area. Camp hosts enforce Forest Service regulations pertaining to the recreation area they are assigned to; however, camp hosts will not be required to handle any law enforcement issues. All violations should be reported to the district office and law enforcement will be contacted.
The Forest Service will provide the host with a volunteer uniform. They will have a host site within the campground for their own RV, Camper Trailer, and or Tent.
