Without question, ID parks were one of the agencies that we were treated the best by, in our 30+ volunteer experiences.

We're long-time volunteers, and spent the last three years at Farragut State Park.  Without doubt, the best state park we've ever hosted at.  Great facilities and host sites, beautiful location, and exceptional volunteer coordinator.  And with around 50 volunteers, the pot lucks are amazing!

I might check out some parks in my wanderings the next couple of months around Idaho for future reference.   What parks would you recommend if I wanted to volunteer in Visitor Centers as a single.  I prefer not to have alot of cleaning responsibilities

Thanks for the info

... not a state park but you might look into the Sawtooth Nat'l Recreation Area at Stanley, Idaho.  It has an active Visitor Center and is an absolutely beautiful place to spend some time.  Stop in and introduce yourself and ask to speak to the Volunteer Coordinator.  Being there in person to inquire about volunteering gives you a step in.  You may be offered a gig for the next season if they have already filled this season.  That's how we got two of our favorite volunteer positions.... by talking to them in person.  Good luck!

We state very clearly in our resume that we do not do cleaning other than emergency spot cleaning. We have only once had that become a problem, when a volunteer coordinator basically lied to us about what the duties would be. It was one of the two times that we left early. But I consider that two places that were less than satisfactory out of 34 that we have done to be pretty good odds.

In national parks there are no cleaning duties. 

Like most blanket statements, this isn't always true. We were offered a position in Big Bend National Park but declined it because it did require cleaning every third day. We spent time at 5 national parks where no cleaning of any kind was required of volunteers.
