Campground and other host opportunities

  • Would you like to camp for free this summer? In exchange for 30 hours a week of volunteer service, such as answering guest questions, planning activities, giving tours and performing light maintenance duties, you can camp for free for up to a month at 122 state parks and state forest campgrounds this summer! There is also a new special opportunity to be a host at the recently reopened Hartwick Pines Memorial Building, as well as very limited slots available to be a lighthouse keeper at Tawas. See below for details on each of these opportunities.
