Washington State Parks Need Hosts!

The Host Program offers enthusiastic and interested volunteers the chance to stay and have fun in beautiful and diverse park settings while gaining experience in park operations and visitor services. Hosts are needed year-round in most Washington state parks.

As a host, you will represent state parks by greeting the public and helping set the tone for a pleasant stay. Hosts assist park staff and perform a variety of tasks depending on the park and the type of host assignment. Hosts receive free camping and hookups in exchange for performing these duties. A typical host assignment is 30 days. This may be extended up to 90 days at the park manager’s discretion. Hosts must provide their own RV and camping equipment. Hosts should enjoy working with the public, have the desire to accept new challenges and possess the willingness to learn about Washington state parks.  You can learn more and download the application here: HOST

Friends of Moran Host Program

Our program is the state park program, but we offer some perks! 

We need hosts who would like to camp at the Summit of Mount Constitution and help us operate the Summit Learning Center.

In exchange for working 28 hours per week in the Learning Center, we will provide a free state park camping site with hook up for electricity, sewer, water and WiFi.  You must provide your own RV.  Due to the winding road and gravel pad, we can accommodate RV’s up to 28 feet.

We have two Host positions available, May 1st through Labor Day Weekend.

If  you will host for Friends  and stay two months, we’ll  reimburse your RV ferry cost from Anacortes, Washington  to Orcas Island via Washington State Ferries.

 To ask more questions just email us.

To sign up please visit the Host Page of the Washington State Parks and Recreation  for full details, frequently asked questions and download the application to begin the process. You will need to fill out the application, get finger prints and most important… Please don’t forgot to mark Summit Learning Center, Moran State Park as your requested park!


Hosting is a great way to experience Moran State park, spend the summer in the islands and volunteer for our state parks.


Friends of Moran is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

Our mission is to support park staff as they manage Moran State Park.  We strive to enhance the visitor experience by providing educational opportunities related to the cultural, historical and natural environments at the park.
