CAMPING -- A summer host for the Bead Lake Boat Launch is being sought by Colville National Forest officials.

The volunteer position involves greeting boaters and campers and tending the public sites at the mountain lake nine miles northeast of Newport.

The hosts are given use of a full-service campsite but have their own self-contained RV or trailer.

For more details and applications, contact Nan Berger, Newport Ranger District (509) 447-7311 or email nberger@fs.fed.us.
