Tahoe National Forest - Truckee RD Camp Hosts Needed for 2023 Season

Save to Favorites


As a Campground Host, you will often be the first Forest representative the visiting public encounters and the first person they will consider for information regarding the area and their National Forest. Volunteer Campground Hosts are an integral part of the Forest recreation program and are critical in achieving the Forest Service mission of "Caring for the Land and Serving the People." As such, we are seeking individuals who can represent the Tahoe National Forest in a professional and courteous manner.

Campground Hosts are expected to be available from mid-May to mid-October, five days a week with two consecutive days off per week. Longer breaks may be considered with prior approval. Season is subject to weather and occupancy. Hosts may be let go as early as Labor Day or as late as mid October. Hosts are requested to be available for public interaction the majority of the day and expected to make full campground rounds early in the morning and evening. Hosts are not expected to contact visitors after daylight hours or to participate in law enforcement activities.

The eastern side of the Tahoe National Forest is recruiting 4 volunteer host positions for the 2023 summer camping season. Specific campground settings can be viewed via

Volunteer recognition and reimbursement

The Tahoe National Forest reimburses volunteer Hosts $40 daily for approved "on duty" days. This reimbursement is intended to cover out of pocket expenses related to transportation, subsistence, propane and generator fuel that are necessary, reasonable, and arise as a result of voluntary work. To receive this reimbursement, Hosts must be US citizens or international volunteers holding J-1, F-1or B-1 visas.

In addition to reimbursement, volunteer campground hosts will be provided a complimentary campsite for the season, identifying uniform components, and personal protective equipment for assigned duties. Certain sites may be provided a government golf cart or utility vehicle to perform official duties. Volunteer hosts who complete a full season in good standing will receive an Interagency Volunteer Pass, valid 12 months from the date of issue.
