Village Camp, a new concept in RV resorts, is being launched with the development of resort communities near Lake Tahoe, California, and Flagstaff, Arizona.
Developed by Roberts Resorts, Village Camp will be an upscale outdoor resort company that combines oversized RV sites with luxury adventure cabins that can be rented or purchased as private getaway cabins.
Village Camp Truckee-Tahoe is being developed on the site of the 130-site Coachland RV Park in Truckee, California, while Village Camp Flagstaff will be built on previously undeveloped property in Flagstaff, Arizona.
“We expect to complete the first phase of construction at our first two Village Camp resorts by late summer 2022,” said Scott Roberts, president and CEO of Scottsdale, Arizona-based Roberts Resorts, adding, “Everything will be super high end.”
The clubhouses will be mountain contemporary design with large windows to take advantage of the outdoor views. Each will have an onsite bistro that will serve local coffee, beer and wine. There will be lots of shared spaces for cabin owners to entertain family and friends and to accommodate meetings and community get-togethers.
Village Camp Truckee Tahoe currently accommodates RV travelers as the property transitions into a high-end RV and tiny home resort. The property currently has one cabin but nine more are expected to be installed by summer and another 20 by year’s end, all of which will be available for rent. “Our goal is to have 40 cabins in place by next summer,” Roberts said, adding that 10 to 20 of the cabins will be available for purchase this year.
Groundbreaking on Village Camp Truckee Tahoe’s clubhouse is expected this summer with completion targeted for fall 2023. The construction team will also develop pocket mini playground parks and install new landscaping for clubhouse and RV lots throughout the resort.
Proposed resort amenities will include a steam room, a fitness room, an outdoor spa, a game room, and a locker room with places to store, repair and maintain skis in winter and bicycles in summer. A bistro run by a professional restaurant company is also being planned and is expected to open in late 2023.
Village Camp Flagstaff, for its part, is expected to open late summer with limited amenities, including a temporary registration
office, a small picnic area, fire pit and food truck with simple grab-and-go items. Construction is also anticipated to begin this year on the resort’s clubhouse and other amenities, including a swimming pool, bathhouse, bocce ball court, dog park and event lawn.
Village Camp Flagstaff will have 175 lots in phase one. Of those, 38 will be rental cabins. Cabins manufactured by Cavco Industries and Lakeside Clayton Park Models will also be offered for sale beginning November 2022. Village Camp will also include 10 furnished safari tents, available summer 2023 Roberts Resorts is also planning to develop additional Village Camp Resorts in Moab and Park City, Utah in the near future.
