In 2006, I was the operator in possession of the Conconully Lake Resort under a lease option agreement with the prior concessionaire, which we did not proceed with. One of the primary reasons we did not proceed was that we could not get a new lease agreement with the Bureau. They gave us many excuses, but never even intimated that they wanted to deny a lease for the land. Note that the Bureau only owns the land, not the buildings, or at least that is what the old lease documents said. Are any other lake resort concessionaires having this type of issue? Or has the gov decided to pick on just this one resort. Given this issue now, I am glad we did not stay. but I come down soundly on the side of the Resort operator.
