How to become a Campground Host

Each year millions of visitors explore Western Australia’s vast landscapes. They head out on the road exploring the State’s stunning coastline, lush forests, and arid deserts, with their caravans, tents, and swags looking for the perfect place to set up camp. Campground hosts are often already onsite with a friendly smile, ready to greet visitors on arrival and share their knowledge and experiences.

Volunteer support

The Campground Host Program has been operating in some of Western Australia’s most beautiful locations since 1989 in over 60 places across the state. It is supported by an army of dedicated volunteers who assist national park rangers in visitor and park management by welcoming campers, providing general information, maintaining facilities and so much more to help create a warm and welcoming environment for all to enjoy. 

Something for everyone

Hosting opportunities are available all year round and with such a variety of campgrounds, ranging from the extremely remote with no running water or power, to places less than a day’s drive away with a few more of the ‘home comforts’, there is a campground to suit the needs and desires of a variety of hosts.  

Get involved 

Whilst the program is popular among retirees, it is perfect for anyone with a love of camping and the outdoors who enjoys meeting new people.
