Description

Little Jackass Creek has an intriguing name… and intriguing nearby attractions. Mistake Point? Who knows what you’ll find there? Jackass Cone? We can’t even imagine what kind of rock deserves such a name. The creek is only a few steps away, making a great water source to fill up your bottles. This is a primitive site on the cliffside, meaning it’s perfect for backpackers heading up or down the Lost Coast to stop here for the night, and it’s fairly isolated from other camps (except for Anderson Camp).
