The maximum length of stay as a volunteer camp host in a California state park is six months. My last day as a camp host at the lovely Brannan Island State Recreation Area will be March 15. On March 16, I will be headed to Samuel P. Taylor State Park near Olema where I first began workamping in May, 2003, and where I also worked part-time as a postmaster relief in the Olema Post Office. The surrounding area will be familiar and I'm looking forward to seeing some old friends. The rangers at the park are delighted to have me on board and were happy to hear I could stay for the full six months.
Samuel P. Taylor doesn't have fishing and there are only 61 sites, none with hookups. There are trails to hike and bike, and there will be programs in the summer including the Junior Ranger program.
By the way, if you appreciate the flat-bottomed paper grocery bags, you can thank Samuel P. Taylor. He had a lumber mill which produced rag paper for newspapers and other products. The flat-bottomed bag was his invention, a novelty at the time.
