Herky Huffman/Bull Creek Hunter Check Station Work Camping Positions - Holopaw, FL

Posted: 7/12/2018 - 3:22 pm

We are seeking volunteers at the check station between September and April, in exchange for a full hookup RV site. We are in Holopaw, FL in central Osceola Co., approximately 18 miles southeast of St. Cloud along Highway US192. Nearby towns include St. Cloud (~18 miles), Orlando (~50 miles) and Melbourne (~25miles). We are within an hour’s drive of Disney World, Universal Studios, theme parks, and beaches.

There are four full hook-up RV sites with electricity, sewer, and water. The area is very remote, so if you enjoy the outdoors, a rural lifestyle, and outdoor recreation such as hunting and fishing, this may be the place for you! We have a common trailer for volunteers, which has a refrigerator, stove, restrooms, and laundry facilities. Volunteers’ primary duties will be to monitor recreational use on the management area, provide information to the public, and collect biological data. This includes keeping count of hunters and other recreational users, providing information to hunters and recreational users, and collecting biological data from harvested animals. No previous experience is necessary and training will be provided by staff biologists. However, if hunting is objectionable to you, or if you are reluctant to handle dead animals, then you should not apply. In addition to work at the check station, volunteers may assist with facility maintenance and other tasks as needed. In exchange for hookups and use of facilities, we request at least 32 hours of work each week per campsite. Days of the week worked are somewhat flexible. The heaviest use of the Management Area occurs from September through December, and consequently, some preference may be given to those people who can arrive early in the season. Check station shifts can be long days starting early in the morning and running into the night. It is very possible to reach your 32 hours of volunteer time in just 2 or 3 days.
