Umatilla forest needs campground hosts

Compiled by the Tri-City Herald May 3, 2012 

PENDLETON -- The Umatilla National Forest is looking for volunteers to spend part or all of the summer as campground hosts at Bull Prairie and Frazier Campgrounds.

Hosts will be given a campsite and will be required to visit with campers, clean restrooms and do minor maintenance.

Bull Prairie Campground is 36 miles south of Heppner, offering 30 tent/trailer sites, day use areas and a 28-acre lake with four floating fishing docks. The campground includes water hook-up, but there's no electricity.

Frazier Campground is 16 miles east of Ukiah, offering 20 campsites and a day use picnic shelter and is considered the "Gateway to Winom-Frazier Off-Highway-Vehicle Trail System." The campground has no water or electricity.

The Bureau of Land Management will charge fees this year at Umtanum, Lmuma Creek, Big Pines and Roza Recreation Sites May 15 through Sept. 15.

Cost is $15 for overnight camping for up to two vehicles and 10 campers with a checkout at 11 a.m. and continued day use until 10 p.m.

The BLM will continue to charge a $5 per vehicle daily fee at these four recreation sites, covering parking, boat launching, use of raft put-in and take-out points and picnicking.
