• Campground Host • General Assistance
There are many benefits to hosting in a National Park in New Mexico. By working 32 hours a week, you camp for free in the high desert and become a part of our Chaco family.
Water, sewer and electric hook-ups are included.
Gallo Campground has 49 campsites: 25 tent/RV combination sites, 12 tent only sites and four RV only sites, which can accommodate trailers/campers up to 35 feet. The campground stays busy all summer long with lots of activities to do in the park.
Duties for Camp Hosts include:
-Greeting and introducing yourself to our campers as they arrive, confirming their reservations and informing them of Chaco's camping rules.
-Ensuring campsites are clean after our guests leave (emptying ash from fire rings, raking campsites and removing expired fee slips).
-Picking up trash throughout the campground as needed.
-Communicate with the Visitor Center regarding vacancy or full status of the campground.
A minimum commitment of thirty days is expected (though a longer commitment is preferable) and we are looking for hosts for the months of March through October. We try to have a minimum of two hosts at a time so that hosts can have a weekend and time to explore the park and the surrounding area.
No need to feel overwhelmed! Our Law Enforcement Rangers, who supervise the campground, will provide an orientation to camp hosts and go over what is expected during your stay. A Camp Host is a very important member of our team since a host can turn a negative experience into a positive one. For more information contact:
