Camp Hosts are volunteer positions, you begin by filling out an application. What makes a great camp host? First a love of meeting and helping people and secondly an appreciation for the outdoors.
Camp hosts at Perrot State Park for July are Bill and Linda Pike.

Their travels take them on the backroads, boondocking and best of all meeting fellow travelers. They enjoy sharing their knowledge and experiences, so be sure to stop by and meet your camp host next time you go camping.
Before retiring Bill was a volunteer paramedic and fireman, as well as a fire inspector, Linda a Medical Assistant at a hospital. As goodwill ambassadors of the parks they share their talents as fishing guide, first aide provider, history buff, camp concierge, mechanic, and many a meal with fellow travelers. Their blueberry puggie pies are delicious.
They began tent camping together without the comforts of cots or blowup mattresses, Bill was a little reluctant at first since he had just finished up a two year tour in Vietnam sleeping on the ground. Their passion for camping has evolved to include a 26 foot trailer, fishing boat and scooter just to name a few of the amenities. For the Pikes it doesn't mean giving up the comforts and pleasures of life. They travel with their two kitties Ellie and Abby who also enjoy the outdoors and meeting new people.
