The clubhouse is located on the premises and offers added amenities and facilities, such as laundry machines, a gym, restrooms, and showers, making it one of the more unique aspects of the RV park.

The business is located off of Highway 80 and is situated between two ski resorts, each of which is about 15 minutes away by car: North Star Resort and Palisade Ski Resort.

There are several eateries and restaurants that the staff like to recommend to their guests, as well.

The goal of Coachland RV Park is to make their guests feel happy and satisfied during their stay. The manager explains that one way they try to accomplish this is through being flexible and lenient with their patrons' needs, such as adding on days to their stay.
The business has received a number of reviews from previous patrons. Many of them mention the quality of services that are offered at the property. One guest wrote, "Great location and quiet/peaceful—very shaded, which is nice in the warmer weather. The office/clubhouse is nice with a gym. Large dog park within a short walk."
While the edifice holds a breakfast each Saturday, as well as a special breakfast once a month, they also have a Fourth of July celebration. Coachland RV Park also does not mind if guests hold their own events, such as family reunions or corporate retreats, so long as they abide by their policies and respect others on the property.
Coachland RV Park has a "ten-year rule," where RVs are not allowed in the park that are older than ten years. Other policies include restrictions on certain breeds of dogs that are allowed on the premises. The edifice is pet-friendly; however, dangerous breeds classified by Coachland RV Park are not permitted. Such species include pit bulls and Rottweilers. Campfires are forbidden unless they are fueled by propane tanks. This restriction is in place to help with fire safety in the area and because of complaints of smoke by neighbors. Smoking is allowed on the property, but management encourages guests to have courtesy towards other visitors and only to do it where they will not trouble others staying on the property.
The business is open year-round, with the busiest months of the season being July and January. The demographic of guests who come to Coachland RV Park are typically about 50 years old or older. Many people who have been to the property before have come back in the following years.
Coachland RV Park is owned by another business that is called Roberts Resorts and is just one of several other RV parks under their ownership. Roberts Resort purchased Coachland RV Park about two and a half years ago in 2019. While the change of ownership was more recent, the RV park has been in operation for more than 40 years. The current owners have been in the hospitality industry for a substantial amount of time and own ten other properties across multiple states. The manager of Coachland RV Park has been working there for over a year, starting soon after the new owners took over. During his time there, the manager has seen the edifice go through what he calls a "face-lift," with many portions of the building receiving new flooring, paint, furniture, and the outside having received some fresh landscaping.
The manager explains that the property has a number of future goals. He plans on expanding the size of the units to give patrons more space between themselves and their neighbors. There are also plans to add 40 more cabins to the business. Additionally, the owners would like to add a spa and swimming pool to the premises. The projects are expected to be finished by 2024. Other tentative plans of Coachland RV Park include the addition of tiny home cabins, which will be classified and used as an Air BnB.
