KALISPELL — Are you interested in spending the summer working along Flathead Lake or Thompson Chain of Lakes? Do you value resource protection and customer service?

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is hiring full-time and part-time positions at several state parks across the Flathead Valley to fill this spring through fall. Positions are available at Logan State Park on Middle Thompson Lake, and the Big Arm, Wayfarers, Yellow Bay, Finley Point, and West Shore units of Flathead Lake State Park. A position is also available at Whitefish Lake State Park. The six-month positions pay $14.70 per hour with paid leave and retirement benefits.

Montana State Parks staff manage scenic, natural, historic, archaeologic, scientific and recreational resources. These local park positions will support daily park operations at day-use areas, campgrounds, water-based sites, park offices, visitor centers or entrance gates.

Interested applicants should apply at the State of Montana Career site at https://statecareers.mt.gov, or by clicking here. Successful applicants will be subject to a background check.

Flathead Lake State Park consists of six unique park units located around Flathead Lake. The park units on the east side are Wayfarers, Yellow Bay and Finley Point, and the west side units are West Shore, Big Arm and Wild Horse Island. In addition to boating, swimming and fishing, each park unit offers unique experiences including camping, rental picnic shelters, group camping, hiking, sightseeing, picnicking and wildlife-viewing opportunities.

Logan State Park is located on Middle Thompson Lake halfway between Kalispell and Libby in the middle of the Thompson Chain of Lakes Recreation Area. Camping, boating, swimming, fishing and picnicking are just a few of the unique experiences found at Logan State Park. This park offers a more developed camping experience than the surrounding recreation area.

Whitefish Lake State Park features a mature woodland on this beautiful and secluded campground and beach. This park is a base camp for adventure. As part of the Whitefish hiking and biking trail system, and a short drive from Whitefish Mountain ski resort, recreational activities are abundant. Boating, swimming, camping and fishing are popular activities. The park is close to the railroad tracks, and children love the trains that rumble along the park’s edge.
