Village Camper Inn RV Park (Crescent City, CA)

After a couple weeks along the Pacific Coast in Washington and Oregon, we finally hit the California border for the final leg towards a relaxing stay in San Diego. Our first night of California camping (would you believe Scott lived here for over a year and never camped in CA?) was at the Village Camper Inn RV Park in Crescent City, CA an hour or so south of the Oregon border.

Location

If there’s one thing that this campground has, it’s a primo location. It’s no more than a couple of minutes from US-101, just outside of the amenities of the small town of Crescent City. More importantly, it puts you within a 30-45 minute drive of some of the most incredible redwood forests you’ve ever seen.

Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, Redwoods National Park, and Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park are all a short drive away. Several other state parks and Oregon are also a short drive away.

Amenities

Hook-ups

This is a standard RV park with water and electric hookups.

Bathrooms

There is only one bathroom and shower facility. It was quite a walk from our campsite, but does have the basic things like soap and hand towels. The doors are locked by a code so that only park guests can use them.

Laundry & Wi-Fi

There is no laundry here. Wi-fi is available at the community center.

Campsites

The campsites are about what you’d expect for an RV park: just big enough for an RV with little privacy. Had we been there during the day, however, the site would’ve been nicely shaded from the sun.

As you can see in the picture, this really is an RV-specific park. We had to set the tent up on the gravel of our space.

Price/Value

Before taxes, the price for our tent site was $23.50. This is a great price considering that we were on the coast of Northern California, right off of the Pacific Coast Highway. RV spaces run $32.50.
