ForestCamping.com, the comprehensive website for camping in national forests and grasslands, now provides a list of volunteer campground host positions available at Forest Service campgrounds across the country.
National forests and grasslands are dealing with reductions in recreation budgets and staffing. As the national economy slowly recovers, people continue to take camping vacations in the 175 national forests and grasslands across the country. These two factors have increased the need for volunteer campground host/hostess and ForestCamping.com is providing a way for the public to find each other.
Duties vary, but as a rule of thumb, a volunteer Forest Service campground host/hostess provides information and assistance to campers, monitors campgrounds for Forest Service, and performs light maintenance duties. In turn, the volunteer receives a campsite and, sometimes, minimal monetary assistance.
The need for volunteer campground hosts is year round and it not limited to one area or just the summer months. Although the greatest need is during the summer, many national forests and grasslands in the southern and southwestern states are available to campers and during the winter months.
ForestCamping.com, the U.S. National Forest Campground Guide website, is a complete and comprehensive guide to developed campgrounds in national forests and grasslands. It provides detailed information to campers looking to experience the great outdoors. In addition to managing a website, Fred and Suzi Dow also self-publish Ebook CDs and downloads of eleven U.S. National Forest Campground Guides, which can be purchased online at their website
Fred and Suzi Dow, authors and publishers of ForestCamping.com, have devoted 18 years to visiting, personally researching, and providing the public with free, detailed information about 175 national forests and grasslands and more than 2,400 personally surveyed campgrounds.
