The Plumas National Forest is seeking volunteer hosts for the 2013 season at two public campgrounds.
The Golden Trout Crossing, on the south fork of the Feather River near Oroville Reservoir, is a year-round facility ideal for off-road vehicle enthusiasts, said Lee Anne Schramel Taylor, a Plumas Forest spokeswoman.
Little Grass Valley reservoir outside La Porte is in a recreation area offering boating and wheelchair accessible fishing.
Host duties include welcoming visitors upon arrival, posting daily reservations at campsites and sharing news and information about the facility, Taylor said.
Campground hosts also explain recreation opportunities and rules to visitors and help facilitate family-friendly fun, she said.
The recreation season begins approximately one week before Memorial Day and extends through October or until the weather changes.
Hosts must have a self-contained RV or trailer and personal vehicle for transportation.
For more information and an application, contact Deb Schoenberg, Feather River Ranger District resource officer, at (530) 534-6500.

Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
