Camp hosts needed at Saddleback Butte State Park
January 4, 2020
Do you or someone you know have a trailer and love camping in the desert? We are looking for volunteer camp host(s) to stay at Saddleback Butte State Park, near Lancaster at the western end of the Mojave Desert (an hour north of LA).
Duties include greeting visitors and campers, selling firewood, light grounds maintenance, light restroom cleaning, and opening/closing gates. It’s a small campground in a quiet park, although spring may be busy if we get a good wildflower bloom. Daily work hours depend on park visitation (generally about 5 hours a day), and days off are during the week but flexible. Camp hosts can also be trained to present interpretive programs if interested. The small town of Lake Los Angeles is located 4 miles away.
The 3-6 month position is available immediately. This is not a paying position, but hosts are compensated with a free campsite and hookups. Camp hosts must provide their own trailer or RV and pass a background check. More info about the position and the park can be found at http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=24561. Email Kevin.Overduin@parks.ca.gov for questions, and to apply.
