Enjoy free camping at Indiana state parks and reservoir properties in exchange for doing volunteer work. Hosts work a minimum of 20 hours per week and do tasks like cleaning fire rings and restrooms, painting signs, picking up trash and welcoming and assisting campers. Volunteer periods vary at sites based on the number of applicants and amount and type of work needed.
A complete list of site availability and detailed information about hosting duties is at stateparks.IN.gov/2404.htm or by contacting the property where you would like to serve. Prospective volunteers must complete an application. It can be downloaded here stateparks.IN.gov/2443.htm
