Campground Hosts

Campground host at Lincoln State Park

Most Indiana State Parks and State Forests offer opportunities for campground hosts. Hosts work a minimum of 20 hours per person per week in exchange for free camping for a specified period of time. The time period varies at sites, based on the number of applicants and on the amount and type of work required. For detailed information about each property’s host program read this document (PDF). Contact the property of interest to check the status of its host program.

A volunteer application and agreement will need to be filled out and turned into sites. Download forms here. Background checks will also be done.
