Tahoe National Forest - 2024 Truckee RD Camp Hosts Needed

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.

The eastern side of the Tahoe National Forest is recruiting 4 volunteer host positions for the 2024 summer camping season. Specific campground settings can be viewed via Recreation.gov.

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.
