North Lake RV ParkCamp Host opportunity awaits!

This is a non-paid volunteer position. We offer a free full hook-up site, plus other allowances (see below). We ask that your RV be at least a 2007 model or newer (more energy efficient) and be in excellent working order and repair. If the model is older, we can discuss it over the interview.

Food Handlers Permit: We require all our camp hosts to obtain a WA State Food Handlers Permit. We will pay for the cost of the permit and this will allow you to: bag ice, operate the popcorn machine, prepare Smore kits, and do any other food-related activities that may arise.

Dates of Commitment:

May 1 – Sept. 30. The park officially opens on April 1, and our season kicks off on Memorial Weekend at the end of May; however, we like our hosts to arrive by May 1 to help prepare for the season. There will be misc. projects to complete, setting up gazebo canopies, cleaning cabins/laundry/bathrooms, showers, and a whole lot more fun! If you would like to arrive earlier than May 1 to help out, we would gladly welcome you!

The end of camping season concludes Labor Day weekend, the first weekend of September. The month of September is still busy even after the holiday, after which begins late family camping and hunting season through Thanksgiving.

We offer a $500 travel allowance to help get you here, and a bonus at the end of the season provided you fulfill your commitment and agreement.

About the park.

The park was established in 1978 and sits next to the Kettle River where it meets the Columbia and joins Lake Roosevelt. NLRVP totals 47 acres (the majority is still undeveloped) and borders US Forest Service land. It currently has 16 full hookup sites, 8 power/water sites, 5 sleeping cabins, and 1 full-service cabin. We are expanding to include 16 more full hookup sites, and 6 tent sites, plus a new bathhouse. It also includes RV and mini storage units and is also home to 8 permanent residents and 10 extended stay/seasonal residents. Hosts are not responsible for storage or resident areas.

We have nature trails that allow you to take nice daily walks or biking along the water’s edge. Our lake cove is perfect for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and bank fishing. Wildlife in the surrounding area includes White Tail Deer, Bear, Cougar, Elk, Moose, Wild Turkey, and small critters such as Chipmunks and Squirrels. The larger animals rarely, if ever, enter the park during the camping season. Our waterways include Rainbow Trout, Walleye, Sturgeon, Bass, and Pike. The park is currently in a stage of expansion and improvement, but it presents itself nicely and we have many return campers.

Bunny has 30+ years of experience in residential management and medical education administration. Together, we are an unstoppable duo!
