Northern Area State Parks seeking campground hosts

 

(Fairbanks, AK) – Northern Area State Parks is currently seeking hosts for the Granite Tors, Rosehip, Lower Chatanika, and Upper Chatanika campgrounds.

 

Campground hosts live in their own RV, motor home, or trailer at a special campsite located inside an Alaska State Park campground. Their stay at a campground and use of state park facilities is free. Each host or host couple will be trained by park ranger staff and receive a volunteer uniform. A subsistence payment of $450 a month is available for hosts who are willing to volunteer for more than four weeks. 

 

The primary responsibilities of campground hosts are to provide park visitors with information, direction, and services, and to serve as the on-site representatives of the Alaska Division of Parks. Hosts are also responsible for janitorial maintenance in the parks, including cleaning outhouses, picnic sites, and parking sites. Secondary duties can include light maintenance of facilities and resource interpretation.

 

Applications are available at the state parks office at 3700 Airport Way or online at www.alaskastateparks.org. For more information, contact the Northern Area State Park office at 451-2695.
