Come camp along the beautiful shores of Lake Tahoe amongst the pines. The Tallac Historic Site is located along the shores of South Lake Tahoe in an alpine forest (predominately Jeffrey Pine and white fir tress) at an elevation of 6,200'. The site has three prominent summer estates built in the early 1900's built by wealthy families.
Our non-profit association offers numerous tours of the buildings and grounds for two of these estates: Pope and Baldwin. This beautiful site includes lush gardens, manicured lawns, nearly 20 historic structures, a high-end workshop and four golf carts to navigate the site. We have a large group of non-profit RV volunteers who live near the site.
Amenities include a nearby free-for-use washing machine and dryer, shower, and restrooms. Power and water for volunteer couple's RV are included at a volunteer-specific campsite (not for the public). RV sites are part shade/part sun. Black and gray water dumping is available on site via blueboy waste tank. Pull up dumping is available at nearby Camp Richardson Resort for a fee. Pets are permitted.
Dates for this volunteer opportunity: May 19th through September 30th. This volunteer couple would work five days a week, six hours a day.
Primary responsibiities would include general maintenance on Baldwin and Pope Estates, cleaning public restrooms, emptying trash, operating and overseeing general maintenance of four golf carts, and off-site errands (volunteer must obtain a government driver's license to operate the USFS's pickup truck). Volunteers will be properly trained for all tasks. General maintenance experience and public contact experience are both a plus!
