Hurricane River Campground Host-June

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

Volunteer campground hosts work 5 days per week, a minimum of 20 hours per week, staying in a designated campsite at Hurrican River Campground lower site 8. All park campgrounds are rustic with vault toilets and central water spigots.


Hosts assist fellow campers with information and registration as well as providing visitor use information to park staff. Hosts do not handle any money, and do not clean restrooms. Hosts should plan on working in all types of weather conditions and during weekends and holidays.


  • Hurricane River Campground is located 12 miles (19 km) west of Grand Marais and is divided into two separate sections off County Highway (H-) 58, Hurricane River Upper, and Hurricane River Lower. The Upper Campground has 10 sites, and the Lower Campground has 12.
  • Campground amenities include water, pit toilets, picnic tables, fire rings, and handicap accessible sites. Hurricane River Lower Campground is the trailhead for the Au Sable Light Station, which is a 3-mile (5 km) round trip stroll to the lighthouse with views of Lake Superior, Jacobsville Sandstone, and Shipwreck remains.
  • Upper Hurricane River is tucked back in the woods with beautiful deciduous trees between sites allowing for the woodsy experience of Northern Michigan.
