The Campground Host Program offers enthusiastic and interested volunteers the chance to stay and have fun in our campgrounds while gaining experience in park operations and visitor services.
Hosts are needed year-round at Flowing Lake County Park, Kayak Point County Park, River Meadows County Park, Wenberg County Park; and seasonally at Squire Creek County Park.
As a host, you will represent county parks by greeting the public and helping set the tone for a pleasant stay. They greet campers, answer questions, and perform light maintenance. This may include opening and closing gates, litter pick-up, and preparing cabins or yurts for visitors.
Hosts may assist with other projects around the park based on the parks needs and the hosts’ skills and interests.
Hosts receive free camping and hookups in exchange for performing these duties. A typical host assignment is one year (or season). This may be extended up to an additional year at the Senior Park Ranger’s discretion.
Hosts must provide their own RV and camping equipment. Hosts should enjoy working with the public, have the desire to accept new challenges, and possess the willingness to learn about Snohomish County Parks. For a more detailed explanation of host duties and expectations, please read the Volunteer and Campground Host Guide (PDF).
If you are applying for a host position which may include working around children or vulnerable adults, or processing credit / cash transactions, you must first pass a federal background check. A completed fingerprint card must be sent for each person applying for a volunteer position.
