Volunteer campground hosts are often the first point of contact for visitors to parks and reserves. They support rangers in the management of campgrounds during the visitor season by:

  • welcoming visitors
  • providing general information about the area
  • checking payment of campground fees
  • being a key point of contact for the public including emergency contact
  • assisting with the maintenance of visitor facilities, including cleaning
  • reporting any issues to rangers as required Campground hosts are largely self-sufficient with their own accommodation.
