The Washington State Parks Host Program offers volunteers the chance to stay and have fun in diverse park settings while gaining experience in park operations and visitor services. Hosts are needed year round in parks all across the state.
Hosts help State Parks staff by greeting the public, and take part in setting the tone for visitors to have a pleasant stay. They perform a variety of tasks depending on the park and the type of host assignment. Hosts receive free camping and hookups in exchange for performing these duties. A typical assignment is 30 days, but may be extended up to 90 days at the park manager’s discretion. Hosts must provide their own RV and camping equipment.
For a list of volunteer and host openings, visit parks.wa.gov/volunteers or stop by the State Parks booth from Thursday-May 6 at the Puyallup Fair and Events Center if you are attending the Puyallup RV Show.
