Job Description

Campground Host

Job Overview:

Clerical office help who greet, register, and check-in/out campers in the parks. Hosts operate the computer reservation software and perform other financial and balancing procedures. We use RMS as our reservation program platform; again, working knowledge of the program is not mandatory but very beneficial. The host is the first contact our arriving members have with the park, so we require a pleasant, knowledgeable person who enjoys people. We want our guests to feel like they are coming home when visiting our park system. It is important that our staff can convey that feeling to our guests. Usually, the host is partnered with a work camper and as a team support both the inside clerical and outside maintenance requirements of the park. Singles may also apply for either position. For couples, we typically do not train both partners as hosts or work campers. This balance helps with our staffing needs however, this is on a case-by-case basis.
