The St. Joe Ranger District is looking for volunteer campground hosts.

The volunteer job would start Memorial Day weekend and last through Labor Day, Friday through Monday, according to a news release.

Hosts answer questions about the campground and local area. Hosts also address problems within the camp site and help clean and maintain the campground.

Hosts receive training, a uniform and a campsite. They must bring their own tent, trailer, camper or motor home, according to the news release.

These campgrounds need hosts: Shadowy St. Joe Campground, Upper Landing Picnic and Day Use Area, Emerald Creek Campground, Big Creek Campground, and Turner Flat Campground.

Applicants may be subject to a criminal background check. Positions will remain open until filled.

For information and to apply contact Jake Biar: (208) 245-6013 or jbiar@fs.fed.us.
