Volunteer campground hosts are needed for several Plumas National Forest campgrounds located at Little Grass Valley and Sly Creek Reservoirs near La Porte, California. The volunteer positions will likely begin in late May and last into September or October, depending on the weather. 

Host duties (20 hours a week) may include welcoming visitors, sharing news and information about recreational opportunities in the area, and light campground maintenance. Hosts must provide their own self-contained RV or trailer and personal vehicle.

If you are interested in hosting at Little Grass Valley Reservoir or Sly Creek Reservoir Campgrounds, contact the Feather River Ranger District at 530-534-6500.
