The seasonal opportunity will last until November.

“Camp hosts play an important role in connecting people with their public lands,” said Jennifer Mata, manager of the BLM’s Redding Field Office. “They welcome campers, provide information and perform light maintenance, including facility cleaning, raking and litter removal to help keep the campgrounds attractive.”

BLM volunteer hosts live on site in their own campers or camp trailers. The BLM provides varying levels of services such as water, septic hookups, and power connections, depending on the site. There is no salary, but the BLM provides allowances to cover living expenses. At Douglas City, the host is responsible for 20 tent and trailer campsites; there are 22 campsites at the Junction City site. Both campgrounds have potable water. The Douglas City campground has showers.

The campgrounds offer excellent access to the Trinity River, which offers world class salmon and steelhead fishing opportunities, white water rafting, and areas great for swimming and picnicking.
