Campground Host


Campground Hosts are responsible for checking campers in and out of their campsites while answering visitor questions. Some of Highline's campsites require RVers to go in the "wrong way" to ensure their door doesn't open up into the road, and Hosts help guide campers into their site. Hosts are not expected to clean the Camper Services Building but are encouraged to make sure toilet paper is stocked and alert the maintenance staff of any issues. Highline Lake is on a "reservation-only" system where campers must have a reservation prior to camping. This system requires Hosts be able to use a tablet to update campsite status (clean, reserved, etc). Responsibilities include: assistance with camping and vehicle fee collection, monitoring the campground, assigning campsites, daily reservation processing (log-in to camp logs and distribute campsite markers), selling firewood bundles, selling bags of ice, light campsite maintenance, giving information to park visitors, park visitor assistance, and creating excellent public relations. Other projects as agreed upon. Full hookups at campground host sites.

Time Commitment:

20 hours per person per week. Time commitment is 3-6 months, April - October.

Four days on duty, four days off duty. Hosts will either be assigned to an AM shift or PM shift.

Volunteer Benefits:

In exchange for your time and contributions to a great state park team, enjoy staying at a beautiful state park in western Colorado within close proximity to many outdoor recreational opportunities.
