BURNSVILLE, W.Va. -- Volunteers are needed for the 2013 recreation season, which runs through the beginning of December, at Burnsville Lake in Burnsville.Those selected will be given a free full-hookup campsite at either Bulltown or Riffle Run Campground for providing 20 to 25 hours of work a week. Typical volunteer duties include staffing a visitor center, giving tours, providing living history, mowing, string trimming, cleaning facilities and grounds, painting, light carpentry and general maintenance support.
Volunteer support is extremely important to help keep areas open. Dedicated volunteers have operated the Riffle Run Campground for several years, making it possible to keep that campground open without shortened seasons or reduced services. There is a need for volunteers to do string trimming and cleaning for that area for the remainder of the season.Those interested in volunteering may call a Burnsville Lake park ranger at 304-853-2371.
