BLM’s Huckleberry Campground is located approximately 30 miles east of St. Maries, Idaho along the banks of the St. Joe River and is the only full-service RV campground along this particular stretch of the river. The campground offers 33-campsites available on a first come, first serve basis, as well as an on-site RV dump station. Use levels during the summer are high especially on weekends and holidays. Camping use is also heavy during the fall, especially during elk hunting season.
The camp host at Huckleberry performs campground maintenance such as lawn mowing, weed trimming, general clean up, grass watering, and water system sampling with tools provided by the BLM. You will be cleaning six concrete style vault toilets that get frequent use, and must be re-stocked with toilet paper daily. Fire rings need to be periodically emptied of ashes, and garbage picked-up daily. The host also monitors visitor use and provides information to users about the site and surrounding area. Daily compliance checks need to be done for the camping fees; however, you will not collect any money from the public.
The host site is fully accessible with water and electricity. The work schedule is five days per week including weekends and heavy use holidays. Reimbursement is paid on a monthly basis.
Hosts must provide their own self-contained onsite lodging (RV/camper trailer). Host campsite must be kept neat, clean, and welcoming to the public.
You will need to pass a background investigation to volunteer for the federal government at a developed recreation site. This includes fingerprinting, and must be completed, and passed before beginning duties.
Hosts will be required to abide by all BLM policies, and rules and regulations. Ability to communicate and interact with others in a friendly and helpful manner is a must in this highly visible and busy position.
Couples are encouraged to apply.
