This position is for a campground host in Camp Creek Recreation Area, located in the scenic Little Rockies approximatly 45 miles southwest of Malta, MT. It consists of Camp Creek Campground, Horse Corral Campground, and Buffington Day Use Area.

This is a Watchable Wildlife area as well as a featured stop on Montana’s Northeastern Plains Birding Trail. Highlighted species include Clark’s nutcracker, red crossbill and red-naped sapsucker.
A Host must work well with people, be personable and neat in appearance. Because our hosts work independently, they must know how to interact with visitors in a calm and professional manner, yet know when to take steps to contact local law enforcement for additional help when a situation requires it.
The Host may be required to be on-site 4-5 days per week, especially on weekends and heavy use holidays. The most important job as a Campground Host is to provide an enjoyable camping experience for the public. The Host is the first and sometimes the only contact with campground users. Other duties expected of a host are to:
* Greet campers
* Give directions
* Answer questions
* Hand out surveys and pamphlets
* Conduct fee compliance checks
An ATV or UTV 50" wide or less would be beneficial to getting around on the numerous roads and trails. BLM personnel will patrol the campgrounds on a regular basis.
