Become part of an enthusiastic community that shares your passion. Volunteers are critical in all parts of Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Volunteer today!
Cheyenne Mountain lies nestled at the base of its namesake, which provides a stunning backdrop to the campground. The park offers a remote location atmosphere, but is only minutes to nearby shopping in downtown Colorado Springs. In 45 minutes or less you can reach popular attractions like the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Garden of the Gods, and Pikes Peak.
Volunteer Campground Hosts are an important liaison between park visitors and park staff. Responsibilities are varied and may include some or all of the following:
Successful hosts are willing and able to clean campsites, cabins, restrooms; answer visitor questions; help run park entrance gate; and are friendly and willing to work with a wide variety of people. Prior camp host experience and knowledge of IPAWS software are preferred but not required.
Site elevation: 6,300 ft.
Looking for three hosts for the 2023 season. Folks who are solo, pairs, families with children, and those working remotely are welcome to apply. Hosts are permitted to have pets, but please note that a lot of our hiking trails and sections of the park do not allow pets.
