Village Camper Inn RV Park, located in Crescent City, CA, turned out to be such a great place to stay during the Summer that Sash and I decided to stay there a little longer than we had originally planned.
Arriving there on June 19, we had initially paid up for a month, but then decided to stay another month.
Monthly price is cheap ($459.00, electricity extra), and the temperature is cool. I mean, where the rest of California is baking in the 100+ degree range, Crescent City, CA stays in the mid-60s. So, cool weather, low prices, and decent shopping around town, equated to an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.
But another reason why we chose to stay there is because one of Sash’s friends lives in nearby Brookings, OR.
But making things difficult is poor Verizon 4G coverage within the park. We couldn’t get online via our Mifi device as it was. However, we were able to order parts for our 4G LTE antenna, and was able to pick up enough signal to get online and get work done, albeit slowly. Otherwise, the Starbucks in town has good Wi-Fi.
Crescent City itself is by no means a romantic getaway. However, it’s coastline is just as spectacular as that found along California’s Central Coast. The sunsets are amazing. The beaches are not crowded; always plenty of parking right along the sand. Also, don’t forget the amazing views along the city’s “Pebble Beach Drive”.
While there are a few other options for RV Parks in Crescent City, Village Camper Inn seems to offer the best combination of peace and quiet, the Redwood Forest, proximity to the ocean and town, and low price. A couple of sections of the park are dominated by year-round residents and monthlies, while other sections reserved for weekenders and overnighters. Otherwise, many of the folks are here for the fishing, and there’s many boats to be found parked in the campground.
Village Camper Inn seems pretty liberal on the rules. For the most part, they don’t seem to mind what you do, as long as its respectful and doesn’t get out of hand.
While Sash and I were there, we got to know our neighbors fairly well. They were generous with giving us free rock fish, freshly caught, cleaned and filleted. In return, Sash made cookies for them.

Just wanted to drop a note to say that I’m really liking your articles. Keep ’em up.
I have your blog amongst many others I read, loaded via RSS into Feedly. Great way to follow a bunch of blogs! I probably have around 100 that I follow, half are motorcycle related, the other half are programming related.
Thanks Will. Glad to hear from a fellow reader.
