Roper lake offers a volunteer opportunity for everyone. We have positions for people in the local community and on-site visitors. Volunteers are needed to staff the visitor contact station and to help out with the various maintenance projects in the park.

Volunteers who stay on-site may use a campsite with electric, water, and sewer for a weekly donation of 20 hours of park service in any of our volunteer positions. Volunteers may live on-site but are responsible for their own housing.

Campground Host /Maintenance

Greet visitors, help visitors get settled into a campsite, answer questions, communicate park rules and regulations, be observant of activities that require immediate attention by staff or outside emergency support, landscaping of park grounds, watering trees, cutting weeds, trimming trees, emptying fire grills, cleaning ramadas and picnic tables, collecting trash and litter from park grounds, periodically check restrooms for cleanliness and supplies, painting, minor carpentry, and plumbing projects.

Contact Station
A contact station volunteer will assist the park in a variety of clerical and administrative functions. This may include greeting guest, collecting fees, taking reservations, communicating park rules and regulations, providing park and area information, answering phones, and operating the cash register.
