People invited to volunteer to spend summer in mountains as campground host

Press release

The Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest recreation staff are once again recruiting volunteers to serve as campground hosts for the Logging Creek and Dry Wolf Campgrounds located in the Little Belt Mountains, Thain Creek Campground located in the Highwood Mountains, and Crystal Lake Campground located in the heart of the Big Snowy Mountains. 

Campground hosts provide their own trailer and occupy a prominent campsite in a campground. The campground host help answer visitor questions, explain and encourage compliance with the rules, and provide light maintenance of campground.

Ideally, the agency would like to have a host in each of the campgrounds before Memorial Day and through Labor Day weekend. The host would be able to take days off throughout the week, however, they would need to be at the campground over the weekends. This position could be filled with a couple of hosts spanning the duration of the summer, so those interested in serving at least a month are encouraged to reach out.

This is a volunteer position only; there is no additional compensation for expenses. The ideal candidate will enjoy helping people, value a spirit of hospitality, love the outdoors, and will be able to explain and remind people about relevant rules for the good of everyone enjoying the campground.

People can contact Recreation Management Specialist Bob Gliko at 406-236-5103 for more information if they are interested.
