All of the spots are pull-through in hopes of being more convenient for guests, and water and sewer are available for each RV. David, the owner of the RV park, explains that the park is "big-rig friendly," meaning that they should be able to accommodate any size of RV that is brought to the resort.
The main office is located on the grounds, as well as an indoor swimming pool, a laundry room, community restrooms and showers, and a dump station. The property is about 3 miles away from Duma, Texas, which is a fairly small town in the state.

Many of the visitors to Dumas RV Resort are those that have found some contracted jobs in the area. This means that some of the park's patrons are long-term guests, while others are short-term visitors. David claims that his RV park is known for having large sites that can accommodate "any rig." He also says that they are all pull-through, which has been something helpful for the visitors in the past. Some of those who have stayed at the property have also left reviews about the RV park that reflect these accommodations. One guest said, "This was a nice place to stay the night. They have full hookups for 30/50 amp and a septic drain at every station. They had free Wi-Fi and all gravel pull-through spots." Another guest said about the atmosphere, "This was a great RV Resort. All the hookups were provided for a reasonable price. The owner is great to talk to and made staying more of a family-type resort. It is a quiet place with plenty of space." David thinks that the majority of his guests find out about Dumas RV Resort simply by driving through the area. He believes that the location of his property is what is most helpful to those staying with him.
According to the owner, many of the guests that stay at the park once end up returning for future visits. David attributes this and other successes to the hard work that has been put into the RV resort and his attempts at making the park friendly. The business is open every month of the year, with the busiest months occurring during the summer. David says that his park is meant to be a place for those that are looking to stay somewhere on their way to another destination; however, he hopes to be able to accommodate all those that stay with him
Dumas RV Resort has been in business for about ten years. It has been owned by David for the entirety of its establishment. He founded the RV park because he felt that it was a necessary business for the area in which it is located. He added all of the sites and amenities that are currently available to people staying at the property. David continually renovates what he feels is necessary and hopes to put concrete on his sites soon, as they currently consist solely of gravel. David says, "you meet a lot of nice people" in his line of work and mentions that that is his favorite part of his job.
