WNF seeks camping hosts for Lake Vesuvius recreation area – The Tribune


PEDRO – The Wayne National Forest is looking for three volunteer camping hosts for campgrounds in its Lake Vesuvius Recreation Area, located in Lawrence County.

The campsite hosts are responsible for welcoming visitors and informing the public. They also help Forest Service employees maintain the campground and clean its restrooms. Other duties include mowing, picking up litter and light pruning of vegetation.

“The Lake Vesuvius Recreation Area is the first developed recreation site in the Wayne National Forest,” said Troy Ferone, acting Ironton District Ranger. “It includes a 143-acre lake, an accessible boardwalk, 25 miles of hiking trails and 45 miles of horseback riding trails, as well as two picnic shelters, two family campsites and a group campsite. We are looking for courteous, helpful and enthusiastic volunteer camping hosts who can convey the rules of the establishment in a positive way.

Prospective applicants must be able to commit to this opportunity for at least 20 hours per week from April 8 to November 13, 2022, particularly on weekends. Selected hosts will receive a fully hooked-up campsite (with electricity, water and sewer provided), but must supply and transport their own trailer or RV.
