Great Smoky Mountains National Park seeks Protection Ranger

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is recruiting for a protection ranger who is interested in working at the Little River Ranger Station within the Tennessee District.

Little River rangers are responsible for a full range of law enforcement and all-risk duties, including traditional patrol operations, EMS, SAR, resource protection and wildland fire details. The park has an active FLETC field training evaluation program and opportunities may exist to apply for a field training ranger position.

The patrol area of responsibility for the Little River workgroup includes a large portion of Newfound Gap Road, a four lane highway known as the “Spur,” Elkmont Campground, and backcountry areas, including Mt. Leconte. The area is extremely busy with a high volume of traffic-related incidents. Rangers also work closely with the Gatlinburg Police Department and their fire and rescue squads.

Interested career or career conditional rangers, who currently hold Type I or Type II law enforcement commissions are encouraged to respond by close of business, July 5th.

For more information regarding this position, please contact Little River Area Supervisor Bobby Fleming at or call 865-430-0325.
