Forest Service Seeks Proposals to Operate Round Hill Pines Resort

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) is soliciting proposals to reconstruct, operate and maintain Round Hill Pines Resort. Round Hill Pines is a family-oriented lakeside resort located on the LTBMU in Douglas County, Nevada, near the communities of Stateline, Nevada, and South Lake Tahoe, California

This business opportunity includes a popular day-use area and beach, as well as the potential for redevelopment of current facilities. Bidders can also propose to expand services, including offering short-term public overnight accommodations and winter recreation activities. The Forest Service is seeking a bidder who can provide high-quality public service in operating and maintaining government-owned recreation facilities.

"We look forward to receiving a number of proposals that combine creative offerings with well-developed business plans," said Nancy Gibson, LTBMU forest supervisor. "Round Hill Pines has a lot to offer as a recreation site, and we believe our prospective bidders will see its potential."  

The LTBMU will issue the successful bidder a special use permit under the Granger-Thye Act for up to a 30-year term. Under a Granger-Thye permit, fees to the government may be offset through reinvestment in the property.

All applications must be received by Monday, May 20, 2013, 4:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time at the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, Forest Supervisor's Office, 35 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

The prospectus is available on the internet at http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/ltbmu/RoundhillProspectus.
