We are looking for a friendly person or couple to be a campground host at West Winnie and Webster Lake campgrounds. Host positions begin early May through Labor Day, but because of the more primitive campground sites, volunteers may sign up for either the full summer, WEEKENDS or as ROTATING HOSTS. West Winnie is located on Lake Winnibigoshish, the 4th largest lake in Minnesota and a popular fishing lake. West Winnie has 35 campsites, Webster Lake has 15 sites.. Webster Lake is a quiet small lake, great for canoeing and panfishing!
These two campgrounds do not have any type of hookups for the host RV site. (No electric, water hook-up or holding tank.) What these sites lake in facilities they make up for in great camping along the lakeshore and some great fishing opportunities. Your choice of big or small lake!
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. West Winnie and Webster campgrounds have no RV hookups, so District is looking for someone willing for multiple couples to each take a few weeks in the summer.
