Spend your summer in a state park as a campground host!

3/22/2024 10:46:00 AM

Several Iowa state parks are still looking for campground hosts for the 2024 season. If you enjoy the outdoors, camping and meeting new people, consider becoming a volunteer campground host and spend your summer in a park! Campground hosts volunteer 20 – 40 hours per week, including weekends and holidays, while living in a free campsite in the park or forest.

Campground host positions available at:

  • Backbone
  • Clear Lake (May 1 – July 8 and August 1 – October 31, due to renovations that will close the campground in July)
  • George Wyth
  • Maquoketa Caves
  • McIntosh Woods
  • Springbrook

Learn more about how to apply on the DNR’s volunteer page.

Or for more information, email or call Elizabeth Thacker: Elizabeth.Thacker@dnr.iowa.gov; phone number (515) 444-9164.
