Camp HostWashington County Parks welcomes campground hosts in the campgrounds at Lake Elmo Park Reserve and St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park

Camp hosts are volunteers who live in the campground, in their own camping unit, for a portion of the summer. 

In exchange for a free campsite, they are responsible for providing information to campers, registering campers in the spring and fall, cleaning restrooms as necessary (between staff cleanings), and other related tasks. 

Interested in begin a camp host, find information on how to apply. These positions fill up quickly and may not always be available.
