Be a Campground Host at Arizona State Parks

by Arizona State Parks

VolunteerWould you like to be an Arizona volunteer campground host and be surrounded by gorgeous mountains and sunny skies 300 days a year?  Arizona has year-round sun, so when you want to get away from the snow, rain and humidity, come here and volunteer in our State Parks.  Volunteers provide their own lodging (tent, camper, trailer, motor home) but will receive a free campsite, most often with full hook-ups, in exchange for a commitment of at least six weeks and donated time of at least 20 hours per week.

Arizona’s State Parks are just hours from vibrant urban areas and offer diverse and fascinating ecosystems for recreating.  The history of Arizona is told in stories of the lives of many settlers who came here to find their fortunes before Arizona was a state.  This is the year to make your resolution to travel to warmer climes. 

Experience the fields of golden poppies, outdoor natural rock hot-tubs, waterfalls, and birding.   Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area has nearby hunting, golfing and fishing.  Volunteers can hike, stargaze, horseback ride, and see or participate in historic reenactments in the parks. Swim, bird and fish at Patagonia Lake, water ski at Lake Havasu or hike to the Romero pools in Catalina State Park.  Dead Horse Ranch State Park is surrounded by State Parks and some of the Southwest’s most beautiful National Parks while offering year-round moderate temps for the outdoors adventurer.  For more information about volunteering at Arizona State Parks go to or call (602) 542-4174.
