Ninilchik and Clam Gulch are located on Alaska’s beautiful Kenai Peninsula, which is nicknamed “Alaska’s Playground” for a good reason. Alaska State Parks is currently recruiting park hosts at Deep Creek Beach, Ninilchik View, Ninilchik River, and Clam Gulch Campgrounds. These campgrounds offer access to Cook Inlet beaches and amazing views of volcanoes across the Inlet. They are also popular areas for salmon and trout fishing in the streams, halibut fishing in the Inlet, and wildlife viewing.
Park hosts must be courteous, customer-oriented, friendly, and able to get along with many different personalities. A park host will be expected to spend most of their time outdoors performing a variety of tasks including; greeting visitors and providing public information, cleaning latrines, picking up litter, and lawn maintenance.
Park hosts live in their campground of responsibility and must have a self-contained recreational vehicle. Some of our campgrounds offer no additional amenities apart from latrines and hand water pumps. A generator is often available, but not guaranteed in these parks. Some of the campgrounds offer water and electricity at the park host site. All hosts have access to an offsite shower and laundry facility in Ninilchik, as well as trash services and an RV dump site.
These are volunteer positions that offer a $400 stipend per couple or individual. Additionally, we are recruiting a maintenance volunteer, which would be responsible for a variety of maintenance tasks such as landscaping, painting, and minor repairs to picnic tables and signs.
For any questions regarding these positions contact Ranger Melissa Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
