I stayed here as a base camp to visit the nearby State Parks and Redwood National Park. The owner was very nice and after I indicated I may stay an additional night, she checked her books and had me stay in another site so I wouldn't have to move. After one day it was clear I needed more time, so that foresight saved me from hitching up. She was fairly knowledgeable about the area as well, Trinidad in particular, and had a number of pamphlets providing info about other places. The park is very quiet, and they make it clear noise is not tolerated 9-9. There's a beautiful pond that most of the overnight sites border, and a lattice fence provides privacy between each site. Each site has a picnic table and a fire tub. There was excellent water pressure, good condition power connections and the site was on fairly level grass, though I did need about 4" of blocks. My drain line is very low, so I appreciated the surface sewer drain as it made it a snap to connect up to. I never used their showers, but the bathrooms were in good shape and the laundry room was large and had 2 coin-op washers and dryers. They had a large selection of books as well, free for each guest. Nearby is a trail that leads to Patrick Point State Park, circumventing the $7 car entry fee front gate, though it does go smack through a group campground site. The park is exquisite though, from forest to sea. Harbor seals, Redwoods, Brown Pelicans, and other wildlife are everywhere in and around the park. So the Glen is in a perfect spot for access to this park. The only negatives would be the bad entry, though currently they route you around another building to avoid that section. Also water run-off ditches go across the gravel road, making for some nasty dips. More gravel would help, or a better drainage system. This was a great place to stay and I chose to stay at this place because of the reviews on this site.

This place was great for a quick stop-over on my way home from Grand Canyon. The staff was very friendly and the lot was well designed for pull-through. Water pressure was great and the dump station was easy to use. The park was quiet from people though there was a lot of road noise from the nearby interstate. The showers only have curtains for privacy so I decided to use my own. Note that most GPS systems do not lead you here correctly for some reason even with a full address, so call for directions instead. Luckily for me the host warned me about that when I asked for an address. Sure enough, the GPS was off by several miles. I'm rating 9 due to showers, as I prefer locking private rooms but otherwise the site was exceptionally clean - not even a tumbleweed was blowing around.

I stayed here one night to visit the Grand Canyon on my way home. The staff was quite friendly and the park was very nice. I was at a site that had a threaded water spigot so I was able to easily re-fill my tank up. It was very quite in the Oak loop and very serene. Some elk wandered through the campground in the morning. The dump station was well designed but the water lines (potable/non-potable) were on the wrong side requiring two 25 foot hoses to reach my rig.

This is an interesting place to stay at, much more secluded than the free campground located off the mesa. You are surrounded by pinion trees and other scrub plants, and all the sites are dirt and generally not level. Howard has a rim hike on the property that's absolutely awesome. You can be completely alone and reflect on how the native people lived here. Howard's two dogs kept me company on my hike, keeping me entertained by scaring the heck out of some wandering sheep. If it happens to rain while you are here, have fun getting out if you don't have 4 wheel drive. The dirt here turns to grease when wet making it tough getting out without a trailer, probably impossible with one. One party here with me had to stay an extra day because they got stuck trying to get their 30' 5th out, and they had a 4x4 Dodge dually. Once it dries it's fine, but forget coming here during the wet months in an RV. There is a dump station here and some non-potable water.

We stayed here two nights to visit nearby Sedona. I chose this place based on ratings here, and we were not disappointed! This place was immaculate, clean and it really showed that the management cares for the place. The showers/bathrooms are cleaned after every use. The kitchen and clubhouse is very nice and the staff there were friendly. They also have a laundromat and a workout room, as well as a pool and a jacuzzi. The only nitpick would be the odd placement of some utilities in the lot we were in, but fortunately we were able to use the lot next to us. Otherwise the power/water lines would need to be quite long. A minor issue that was by far better than staying in some of the nearby RV parks we had looked at after finding the state park we wanted to stay at was booked.
