People have mentioned that the Dutch Flat RV Resort has lots of walking trails and is generally quiet. Laurie herself says that the walking trails are the premise’s most unique feature. One guest has remarked, “The camp hosts are awesome and accommodating, and ever so sweet. The pool is really beautiful and well-kept. It is a quiet park with no ridiculous parties, which is great.” The owners say that most patrons find their property through the internet and wish that guests knew more about the atmosphere of their property, which they consider to be a quiet and relaxing environment.

There is a wide variety in the demographics of visitors to the Dutch Flat RV Resort, with foreigners, middle-aged couples, families, workers, people passing through, etc. The owners strive to make sure no partiers, illegal substances, or anything that would make an unsafe environment for visitors, are on the property. Laurie says that she talks to every patron over the phone before they arrive on the premises and is often the first person people talk to when first arriving.

The business is open year-round, with the busiest season of operation falling during the summer months, specifically from June to August, but is still busy throughout the year as well. Most visitors who stay at the campground are coming for nearby attractions. Such locations include Lake Tahoe, mining areas, historic sites, and the surrounding nature. The owners say that people will come to their property to stay while they find a place to live in the area permanently. Laurie recommends that their visitors try the Monte Vista Inn, which is within walking distance of the resort. 


Since buying the property, Laurie and Ron, the owners, have put in all the hiking trails on the premises. Ron is also an operator and has been able to add the routes himself and other additions to the land as well. Right now, the property only has 30 amp hookups for RVs, but the owners have future plans to upgrade all of them to 50 amp hookups in hopes of accommodating patrons better. Overall, Laurie and her husband want to continually upgrade their property to make it comfortable and convenient for their guests.

Laurie and Ron have said that what they enjoy most about their job is meeting the people that come to stay on their property. According to Laurie, there is a lot of interaction between the workers, them, and patrons on the grounds. Their goal is to help visitors with their needs and be friendly while not intruding on their vacation.
