Stanislaus River Parks - Valley Oak Recreation Area

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Volunteers are needed for three-month terms. Volunteer park hosts ensure that the park entrance gate opens in the morning and is secured at sunset. They conduct periodic walkthroughs of the park, greet the public and answer questions. Park hosts do not enforce regulations; however, they are expected to be additional eyes and ears of the park rangers. Park hosts may be needed to assist during emergencies.

Hosts’ days off are either Tuesday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Thursday.

Valley Oak Recreation Area is a popular takeout point for river rafters during the summer months, while also containing 11 boat-in environmental tent camping sites. Reservations are required 14 days in advance through ONLY. (In the last 3 years the campground has not reached full capacity, so the host duties are primarily park host not camp host). The fall and winter seasons see moderate to low visitation.

In exchange for volunteer services, hosts will be provided with, an RV site, electricity, water, and sewage at no charge. The host is required to maintain a telephone at their own expense. The park address is 10500 Rodden Road, Oakdale, CA, 95361.
