By ThisIsReno

USFS LogoSouth Lake Tahoe, Calif.–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
