Washington State Parks is looking for volunteers to conduct visitor surveys this summer at state parks in southwestern Washington and on the Olympic Peninsula.


Survey results will help us better understand our visitors so we can improve customer service, visitor experience and park offerings.


State Parks provides iPads and survey software that require no computer skills from visitors and only basic skills from volunteers. The survey generally takes visitors less than five minutes to complete.


Survey schedules are flexible based on volunteer availability within specified dates.


Volunteers who surveyed our visitors in the past have generally enjoyed the experience of meeting and interacting with different people in parks.


Interested?  View a list of volunteer assignments and sign up here. We will follow up with you to provide you with the information and support you need to be a visitor survey taker.

Questions? Contact Cassidy Giampetro, survey volunteer coordinator, at
