We are looking for a friendly person or couple to be a campground host at West Winnie, Noma Lake. and North Star campgrounds. Host positions begin early May through Labor Day minimum. West Winnie is located on Lake Winnibigoshish, the 4th largest lake in Minnesota and a popular fishing lake. West Winnie has 35 sites.
Webster Lake has 15 sites and Noma Lake has 14 sites. These two campgrounds do not have any type of hookups for the host RV site. The District is looking for people who may be willing to cover Noma and Webster campgrounds from Thursday-Sunday or host on a short term basis. (Couples who can only cover a few weeks during the summer will be considered.)
The campground host will act as the first contact for the Forest Service and will live in the campground. The host will provide a presence, answer questions, and perform light duty work including bathroom cleaning, posting reservations, and some mowing. Hosts provide campfire wood. The host will also make rounds each day and record license numbers of campers. The host will not perform law enforcement duties, but will inform Forest Service personnel or the county sheriff depending on the violation. District recreation staff provide support and supplies to campground hosts. Many hosts make lifelong friends with campers.
This is a volunteer position. We are able to reimburse the host with a prime lakeside camping spot in the campground, $10 a day for food, reimbursement of any travel needed for the position, and a phone. There are no hookups.
HOUSING & AMENITIES Type: Camp Sites Description: RV Site provided in the campground loop. Noma and Webster campgrounds have no RV hookups, so District is looking for someone willing to cover Thurs-Sun schedule, or multiple couples to each take a few weeks in the summer.
