Seasonal staff are the face of the state parks, answering questions, registering campers, cleaning buildings, maintain trails, mowing grass and helping visitors.
MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich — Due to COVID-19, Michigan State Park campgrounds opened late in 2020, and therefor the Department of Natural Resources operated the summer camping season with a smaller than normal staff.
Camping reservations for 2021 are trending higher than normal, and the DNR is expecting to return to normal staffing levels.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has announced it is looking to hire more than 1,200 seasonal staffers for jobs at state parks, state forest campgrounds, boating access sites and harbors.
“This year we’re already starting to recruit people,” said Parks and Recreation
