A California-based luxury lodging company has formally withdrawn its application to build a “glamping” siteon an unused parcel of land near Sedona but left the door open to return with a revised plan.
The proposal was met with opposition from local residents and tribes, who objected to plans to turn approximately 18 acres at the base of Bear Mountain into a campground for “glamping” — glamorous camping.
The development would have included amenities such as a 4,500-square-foot clubhouse, over 85 Airstream trailers and around 100 fire pits.
Bernie Corea, the senior land acquisition manager at AutoCamp, the developer, revealed the company’s withdrawal in a letter to Yavapai County Development Services.
