Beartree Camp Hosts

Save to Favorites


The Mount Rogers National Recreation Area is looking for volunteers to fill several campground host opportunities. A campsite will be provided free of charge, but the volunteer must provide their own living quarters; e.g.. trailer or RV.

Beartree Campground offers a relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere with 73 family sites within the campground for tents, trailers and RVs in two loops. With over 400 miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, as well as numerous fishing, hunting, and wildlife viewing areas throughout the recreation area, this campground is perfect for people who want to enjoy an assortment of different outdoor activities. Located near the Mount Rogers Scenic Byway, the campground is just 5.5 miles to Konnarock, Virginia, 9 miles from Damascus, Virginia and 23 miles from the larger town of Abingdon, Virginia. The Appalachian Trail and the Virginia Creeper Trail are located nearby. Full hookups are available for host sites. Wi-Fi will be available for the host, in addition to a landline and full use of a washer and dryer, free of cost!

Hosts should be at the campground 4-5 days per week, including weekends and holidays.

Hosts may be called upon 24 hours a day.

Days off will be scheduled for weekdays, usually Monday, Tuesday, and/or Wednesday.

Host(s) will represent the Forest Service in public contacts, providing information and directions, and reporting vandalism and other problems to Forest Service personnel. A golf cart, all necessary tools, cleaning supplies, and safety equipment, will be provided by the Forest Service. Campground Host training and orientation will also be provided by the Forest Service.
