Lost Dutchman Volunteers
Named after the fabled lost gold mine, Lost Dutchman State Park is located in the Sonoran Desert, 40 miles east of Phoenix. Several trails lead from the park into the Superstition Wilderness and surrounding Tonto National Forest.
We are currently seeking volunteers from the Apache Junction and Gold Canyon communities who are able to donate three hours once a week, or once every two weeks, to staff the ranger station and gift shop every morning from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Duties for these positions are listed below.
Visitor Services Volunteers:
Visitor services volunteers work in the visitor center/ranger station in three-hour shifts. They collect fees and issue park permits, provide information about the park and local vicinity, and transact gift shop sales. They also help keep restrooms and public areas clean. Typically lives off the park but volunteers at the park.
Several Campground hosts reside in the campgrounds for periods of three to six months and support the operation of the park. In addition to greeting campers and assisting them in finding their sites, hosts are the rangers’ eyes and ears. They inform visitors of rules and regulations. Hosts also perform custodial tasks in restroom and shower facilities and assist with routine park maintenance tasks. Hosts are provided a free campsite with water and electric hookups for their own RV.
