Mark Twain Lake, February 11, 2021 – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake is recruiting volunteers for Gate Attendant and recreation maintenance positions.  Full-time (minimum of 20 hours per week) volunteers can receive a full-service campsite for their services.  Fill out an application at www.volunteer.gov to get started.  You may also contact the Mark Twain Lake Project Office at 573-735-4097 or email marktwaininfo@usace.army.mil for more detail.

Gate Attendant volunteers staff the campground entrance stations to provide visitors with information, assist with registration and provide record keeping for the campground. No fees are handled because all campsites must be reserved and paid for on-line by the camper.  Recreation volunteers may assist with a variety of tasks including sign installation and maintenance, vegetation trimming, painting, customers surveys, minor maintenance tasks and assistance with special events, to name a few.

Volunteers are crucial to projects like Mark Twain Lake.  They provide support for many recreation and resource tasks that might not get done without their involvement.   Volunteers provide an average of $250,000.00 worth of service each year.  That amounts to over 15,000 hours of service provided by approximately 300 volunteers.     

For more information, please contact the Mark Twain Lake Project Office, 20642 Highway J, Monroe City, Missouri 63456, telephone (573) 735-4097 or email marktwaininfo@usace.army.mil.
