Does a free, extended stay at a Michigan state park or harbor this summer sound like a dream come true? Then you might make a great host in the Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ campground and harbor host program.
The DNR is currently accepting applications for volunteer campground and harbor hosts at locations across the state for summer 2023. In exchange for some light responsibilities, hosts can camp at the state park or stay in the harbor for free.
The hosts are responsible for 30 hours of service weekly, such as answering visitor questions, planning activities and performing light maintenance duties. In exchange, camping and boat slip fees are waived. Host positions are for a minimum of 30 days and require some training in advance.
Currently the campground hosting program includes more than 100 state parks, state forests and recreation areas. Harbor hosts are being sought for DeTour, Presque Isle, Straits and Tawas state harbors. Applications are accepted year-round until vacancies are filled.
Campground hosts: Must be 18 or older and provide their own camping equipment, food and other personal items. They must pass a background check and participate in a two-day training session within the first two years of being selected. Individuals and couples may apply.
