    What is a State Park Volunteer?

        Park Resident Volunteers...

        These volunteers receive a campsite (with utility hookups where available) and hands-on training by experienced park staff. In exchange, a commitment of 24 hours a week per provided campsite is required.  A two-month term of service is strongly encouraged.  Schedules are flexible based on park needs and volunteer availability.

        Community or Day Volunteers...
        Day Volunteer    


            Day volunteers liive in a nearby community or are visiting one of our state parks. These volunteers can participate in a variety of different jobs, and they receive mentorship and training from our experienced and qualified park staff.

        Projects/Events Volunteers...

        Individuals, couples, organized clubs, scout troops, or other groups who contribute to one-time projects or events, or ongoing as needed.  Group leaders are advised to contact the Park Coordinator, to arrange logistics, at least two weeks in advance.  Youth (under age 18) must have prior written consent from a parent or legal guardian.
