During the warmer summer and fall months, hundreds of volunteers spend time camping for free at Michigan state parks and state forest campgrounds in exchange for their service as campground hosts. The Department of Natural Resources now is accepting 2016 campground host applications, with opportunities available from April through late October.
Campground hosts must be able to answer questions about the park, plan campground activities and perform light maintenance duties. Hosts are responsible for 30 hours of service per week (including weekends and holidays), with a minimum commitment of four consecutive weeks.
“What we really enjoy about hosting is all of the people that we have met over the year,” said campground hosts Mary Lou and Bill Brininstool. “Camping is a lot of fun and a nature experience for the whole family to enjoy and get to make memories.”
