Kentucky state parks looking for campground hosts

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky state parks are looking for volunteers to serve as campground hosts during the spring, summer and fall of this year.

Campground hosts handle a number of duties, including checking in campers, making sure camping and picnic areas and bathrooms are clean and being available to answer questions.

In return, campground hosts receive free camping at the host property during their stints.

State parks officials say the hosts will undergo criminal background checks and should possess a valid driver's license.

The Kentucky state parks system operates 31 campgrounds across the state from April through October.

People interested in applying can go online at and look under "Park News" to download an application.
