Wallowa Lake State Park

We decided to park host for a month or two. We called Wallowa Lake State Park, located in NE Oregon in Wallowa County and they had a place for us. For who are unfamiliar with park hosting, I will give you a short description.

Oregon State Parks require you to file an application. Once a criminal background check has been completed, you are placed on a list. Each park has a Host Coordinator who will select a host from the list. Hosts are given a full hookup site in exchange for 30 hours of volunteer work. We work five days a week. Some State Parks have you work 20 hours.

Federal Campgrounds, BLM, Army Corps of Engineers, Fish and Wildlife and private campgrounds also have hosting. Some exchange for a full hook up, others will pay a monthly wage.

We enjoy hosting. We visit with campers from all walks of life and from around the world. We work with hosts who are fun to get to know.

We would recommend hosting to anyone.
