We usually don't go seeking camp hosts unless there is a problem. When we do, we're polite and respectful, but direct. At times I have seen people loose it with a camp host and wondered what the camp hosts duties are for what they get paid. I researched a little and found, that most part... they're volunteers. The camp hosts in the Indiana state parks are hired as couples so the park can avoid a full time position by splitting a 40 hour work week. Then paid nothing for their services but for a free camp site and I think that needs to be taken into account when consulting them that they are just basically a free avenue of communication for the park. Kudos to these people for doing what they do without a wage!
