THE ROLE OF A CAMP HOST:
Hosts provide services in partnership with staff by providing visitors with information, assistance, and services. This is accomplished by encouraging compliance with park rules and regulations, acting as a contact if emergencies occur when a ranger or site supervisor is off duty, and collecting fees when trained and authorized. General additional duties include maintaining facilities and/or landscaping, removing litter, making simple repairs, and performing light housekeeping and janitorial duties or other work as assigned to support park operations.

Hosts provide a minimum of 20 hours per week of scheduled duties in exchange for a site and hook-ups for a motor home or trailer. (Please note selected hosts need to have weekday, weekend, and holiday availability, and we are not able to accommodate all hours completed in two days) It is also a requirement that hosts live on-site, meaning they sleep in their motorhome or trailer to be the off-hours contact at the location should an emergency arise.


ABOUT THE PARK:
Agua Caliente Park is a camping park nestled in the huge, Anza Borrego Desert State Park and is best known for its geothermally heated springs and rugged desert hiking. Three naturally fed pools provide different ways of enjoying the park's mineral water. Hikers will enjoy miles of trails that meander through the park's canyons and over its hillsides.

The park is very popular during the winter and has numerous camping sites available including Full hook-ups, partial hook-ups and tent sites, a caravan area for large groups, and seven camping cabins with temperature controls, a table with seating for four, two queen size bed frames, a sink, and a bathroom.
