Volunteer Park Host positions are located at the Hyatt Lake Recreation Campground, at 5,200 feet elevation, in the scenic Cascade Mountains of Southern Oregon. This site is located within the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument. More specific site information can be accessed at our recreation site homepage at, http://www.blm.gov/or/resources/recreation/csnm/csnm-hyatt.php. Host positions are in support of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) objectives and policies at Hyatt Lake Recreation Complex. Incumbent will be expected to support the BLM’s role, objectives and policies in providing outdoor recreation to visitors at Hyatt Lake. Hyatt Lake Recreation Complex is a very busy, fast-pace campground and day-use operations. Hyatt Lake Campground has approximately 54 campsites, several day-use areas, 2 group site areas, and 5 campsites specific for equestrian horse camping. All of the campground is by reservation only, facilitated through recreation.gov.
Hosting duties include but are not limited to, daily campground reservation duties, including fee compliance, routine bathroom cleaning and monitoring, monitoring facilities and campground for visitor security, cleanliness issues and potential safety hazards, light maintenance duties, routine daily trash pickup throughout the campground, routine fire-ring monitoring and cleaning, daily interactions with visitors, including answering questions regarding area recreational opportunities, and informing visitors of rules and regulations within the campground, reporting to staff when repairs are needed or when incidents occur, and other duties as assigned.
Host duties start end of May and can last up until the beginning of October. Schedule will be five days a week with duties needed especially on weekends, holidays and evenings, when visitation is at its highest. Incumbent will be provided with a campsite, with access to electricity, water, sewer, as well as access to hot showers. Reimbursement is contingent on duties performed, and may be provided to offset expenses. Incumbent will be required to pass a background check and will be accepted only upon successful completion.

Ability to communicate and interact with others in a friendly and helpful manner is a must in this highly visible and busy position.
