Resident Volunteer - Maintenance/Visitor Services


Volunteers who assist in the Visitor Center usually serve a few hours in the morning by selling Daily Park Passes to visitors entering the park. They may also assist with hunting/fishing license sales and by providing directions to park visitors. The Visitor Center is a very fast-paced environment but it is usually the first contact a visitor has with the park, so excellent customer service is a must. Visitor Center volunteers also assist with interpretive programs on the weekends. Maintenance volunteers are an essential part of our facility upkeep. Highline Lake is known as an "oasis in the desert" because of our lush grass and healthy shade trees. With our high visitation in the summer, it takes a small army to keep our park looking beautiful. Volunteers are commonly found mowing the grass, assisting with flood irrigating the campground, and doing light trail maintenance, just to name a few. Full hookups at campground host sites.

Time Commitment:

Morning shifts to beat the heat! 4 days on duty, 4 days off.

Volunteer Benefits:

Winters in the Grand Valley can be mild and perfect for winter camping. Enjoy being part of a great park team and enjoy winter hosting opportunities!
