Description
A single Campground Host is needed to care for Maple Canyon Campground/ Rock Climbing Area. Maple Canyon is located in the Sanpitch Mountains of Central Utah at around 6,000 ft. elevation near the town of Moroni. The Campground lies beneath towering cobblestone canyons, which offer great hiking, world class sport climbing, and many other recreation opportunities.

Duties will include the following for 15 reservable campsites, 5 non-reservable, campsites, 3 vault toilets and 2 trail heads:
– Post reservations
– Clean fire pits, pick up trash, report campground condition
– Compliance monitoring, including: fee payment, and campground etiquette
– Clean and stock vault toilets
– Engage in visitor education
– Alert visitors to any restrictions such as fire, OHV, etc.
– Perform basic campground/ trail maintenance

Because Maple Canyon is such a popular climbing area, the summer months are quite busy. Moderate exertion will be necessary to keep the campground’s bathrooms in shape and reservations posted. Knowledge of climbing terminology would also be helpful. A campsite will be provided. There is no water, hookups or electricity (solar panels may be available.) Generators are not allowed in the canyon. The town of Moroni is a 10 minute drive away.

Reimbursement may include daily subsistence, five days a week (including weekends) and mileage reimbursement for personal vehicle used. All tools and equipment will be provided.

This position starts in the spring depending on snow melt and goes through the fall colors of October.
