Become a Volunteer Today!

Please complete and submit a Volunteer Application if you are interested in volunteering at one of our parks.

Volunteering as a Camp Host or Day Volunteer for New Mexico State Parks is a very rewarding way that you can help to make a real difference!   Volunteers play an essential role in helping us provide a quality outdoor recreation experience for our visitors. Camp Hosts are often the first to meet and greet arriving campers and provide them with key information about the parks amenities.

Benefits:
Camp Hosts receive a free campsite with hookups (where available) in exchange for a minimum of 24 hours of volunteer service per week.
