Wanted: Campground Host for VIP Campground

Although we have hired campground hosts for the Longmire Volunteer Campground for the first half of the summer, they have other obligations which prevent them from staying on past July 22. We are looking for someone to fill this position through late September.

Hosts coordinate the use of 31 tent sites, 2 group sites, and half a dozen Park-provided platform tents. They take reservations and assign campsites, and make sure guests are aware of campground regulations, ensuring that they comply with the rules while making sure everyone feels welcomed and supported. Duties include dealing with challenges as they come up (illegal campers, people who've lost their keys, loose dogs and so on), maintaining, cleaning and restocking a comfort station with three showers, and assigning/retrieving keys from campers, as well as keeping the campground free of camping litter.

If you are interested in being a Longmire campground host, please contact Kevin Bacher directly at 360-569-6567 for more information or drop a note to Kevin_Bacher@NPS.gov.
