Minnesota state park campground hosts

From early spring through the fall, campground host volunteers serve as a "live-in" host at a state park or state forest campground for at least a four-week period. A host's primary responsibility is to assist campers by answering questions and explaining rules that apply to them in a cheerful and helpful manner. Volunteers should be familiar with state park and forest campground rules and the reasoning behind them.

Check back soon for 2015 availability. We should have that information online sometime in January.

How to apply

Applications are accepted all summer long, but must be received at least 30 days prior to the date you wish to begin serving as a host. Download the campground host application. This is a PDF file. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to download it.
