Looking for a beautiful, peaceful setting to serve as a Forest Service Volunteer Host? Hurricane Campground at Mount Rogers National Recreation Area may be the place for you! Often called one of Southwest Virginia’s best kept secrets, it is a small, 24-site campground located adjacent to a beautiful trout stream and there are several hiking trails right from the campground—including the Appalachian Trail. Mount Rogers National Recreation Area has over 400 miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, as well as numerous fishing, hunting, and wildlife viewing areas throughout the recreation area.
The campground is only about 5 miles from Sugar Grove, Virginia and 15 miles from the larger town of Marion, Virginia. Hurricane Campground feels like a remote setting, without being too far from town and only 2 miles from a paved state highway. Full hookups are available for host sites. Normally, this campground has 2 sets of hosts who share the duties.
The primary responsibilities of the Forest Service Volunteer Hosts are:
Greeting visitors and helping them get oriented to the area
Inform visitors of campground rules and regulations
Light maintenance of campground
Ash removal from grills
Cleaning picnic tables
Opening and closing of gate each day
Hosts are expected to be on site 4 to 5 days per week, including weekends and holidays. The campground is open from April 15 to October 31.
