ORGANIZATION: USDA Forest Service

Big Creek Campground is located approximately 9 miles west of Hoodsport, Washington near Lake Cushman. There are 65 camping units, 12 of which are walk-in tent sites and 53 which accommodate either tents or RVs. The campground offers potable water, vault toilets, and all sites are first-come, first-served. The campground sits in a second-growth forested area, with Big Creek running adjacent to it. There are three covered picnic shelters available for group day use, as well as a trailhead within the campground that accesses a small loop trail around the campground, as well as a connector trail that leads to Upper Big Creek and Mt. Elinor.

The camp host site has water, electricity, and a holding tank for gray water. Hosts will remain on site 5 days per week with Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as the potential days off. Hosts will be available to answer visitor questions within reasonable hours, typically 9am-7pm. A stipend will be given at $35/day worked. Propane costs will not be reimbursed. A Forest Service volunteer name tag, badge and vest will be issued upon arrival and returned at the end of the season.
