CHILOQUIN, Ore. March 30, 2018 — The Fremont-Winema National Forest is looking for energetic, friendly, good-natured people to serve as campground hosts at Williamson River Campground during the 2018 season.

Applications will be accepted through April 30, with a preferred start date no later than May 24.
