Camp Hosts are often thought of as the "eyes and ears" of campgrounds. They provide supervisors and rangers with information regarding campground facilities, visitor use, wildlife sightings, and safety concerns, but do not take direct action involving law enforcement situations. Hosts may staff ranger stations, provide upkeep of campgrounds, assist with the selection of campsites, and camp registration and fee payment. Camp Hosts live on site in the campground and can volunteer services for either a three-month or six-month period as approved by the Park Ranger Supervisor. Camp Hosts provide their own recreational vehicle or travel trailer. A campground space with electricity, water and sewage connection is provided. 

Camp Hosts are required to complete a camphost application, reference check, and Livescan/fingerprinting.
