Come to a state park in Georgia, chances are, the first people you see in the campground are our hosts. The campground host program is one of our most popular volunteer opportunities. In exchange for a free campsite and utilities for your RV or motorhome, hosts serve the park and the public. Hosts commit to a minimum of 2 months and up to a maximum of 6 months. Hosts contribute a minimum of 24 hours per week per couple. The Campground Host program utilizes volunteers who can furnish their own lodging (camper, RV, or motor home). Individuals, couples, or even families may serve as Hosts. Retired couples often find it an ideal way to spend a few months.
Many parks and sites need volunteers on a daily, weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly basis. This includes golf, conservation or train volunteers! These volunteers get an opportunity to be involved for whatever time they have to give.
