The maintenance person or couple will provide maintenance support for all campgrounds and day use in the area. Probably the most important part of the maintenance person’s job description is working with the water systems. Other duties may involve tree cutting, painting picnic tables and restrooms, landscaping such as weed trimming, mowing, and blowing. A maintenance person could do small engine repair and equipment maintenance.
Brainard Lake Recreation Area is a multi-faceted area. The principal activities are camping, day use, fishing, and hiking. Brainard Lake itself has a road around it that provides access to many different trail heads, each with their own parking lots (many of which connect with the Continental Divide N/S trail).
