For the Glenns, summer began the middle of May when they set up camp and hung their official “Campground Hosts” shingle on a tree in front of their campsite. In an arrangement with the US Forest Service, the Glenns agreed to spend the months of May, June, July, August and September as liaisons with campers who come to the campground to spend anywhere from one night to two weeks.
And their reward? A free campsite with electricity, water, sewer and phone for their 28-foot camper.
Their duties? Locking and unlocking the gate to the campground each night and morning, cleaning the restrooms, and, most importantly, serving as a focal point for campers in this remote area where there is no cell phone service nor any of the conveniences we take for granted in less remote areas. If there is a medical emergency, or a situation needing law enforcement, the Glenns can make a call to get the necessary help.
