Camp Host - Cottonwood Campground

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

Cottonwood Campground is a fairly small campground with 25 campsites and 1 group site near the banks of the Rio Grande, the international border between the United States and Mexico.


This campground is at an elevation of 2,100 feet. Because cold air tends to sink into lower valleys during the peak seasons of fall and winter, temperatures are cooler here than in other parts of the park during these times. Be prepared for all types of weather.


This area also serves as a launch/take-out point for float trips down the Rio Grande via access at the boat ramp just outside the entrance to the campground. Additionally, there are numerous hiking trails and backcountry roads for exploration.


This is a minimum 32-hours per week volunteer position. The incumbent must furnish his or her own trailer or RV under 40’ in length. Electrical, water and sewer hookups are provided free of charge and propane is reimbursed. Laundry facilities are provided.


There is wifi in the housing area for use by the camp host only.


Full-time and part-time volunteers who will work outside must be identifiable to the public. Uniform consists of brown or tan (khaki) pants/shorts and a khaki work shirt with VIP patch sewn on the left-hand sleeve. Volunteers may obtain volunteer work shirts and hats at the volunteer cache.
