The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (CNNF) is looking for campground hosts and volunteers to fill a variety of roles for the summer recreation season.

“Volunteers play a key role in our forest’s recreation program each year,” said Paul Strong, forest supervisor on the CNNF. “The service that they provide enhances visitor experiences which in turn supports the local communities.”

The Forest Service works to match volunteer’s talents and skills to jobs that provide a safe and rewarding experience while meeting the forest’s needs.

Currently, the Forest Service is actively seeking volunteers to serve as campgrounds hosts this summer. Hosts greet visitors and assist with the cleaning of restrooms, campsites and fire rings. A free campsite is provided (amenities vary by site) and all maintenance supplies are provided by the Forest Service. To find out more, visit the Volunteer Information page at

People should contact the Ranger District office nearest the location a person would like to volunteer.

“We truly appreciate the service and dedication that our volunteers provide,” said Strong. “Their commitment to customer service is what keeps our visitors coming back each year.”
