Otter Space

13 sites · Lodging, Tents5 acres · Orick, Humboldt
The Otter Space Conference Centerwas purchased in 2002 by Dr. Peter Alsop as a place of peace and healing, where human service professionals have come to train with Dr. Alsop and learn how to help children and families cope with issues such as chemical dependency, loss and grief, child abuse and trauma. We are located on the Yurok Indian reservation right on the Klamath River just outside Orick, CA. The name Otter Space comes from a family of otters that live just down river. It’s also combination of “Artist’s Space” and “Outer Space” and implies the importance of thinking “out of the box” and valuing music and the arts in healing and living our lives fully, as well as the need to pass on earth and people-friendly skills to help our children survive into the future.We are "off the grid", through a Redwood forest and over a mountain down into the Klamath River valley. We have a 5 acre meadow, and orchard with 50 trees, peaches pears, apples, cherries, plums, pluots, apricots and grapes. We are right on the Klamath river on the Yurok reservation. It's a great place to come and recharge your internal batteries. (We have some solar panels and we have to start the generator to charge the other kind of batteries, because we're off the grid!) There is no telephone or internet service to interrupt your peace and quiet..Our Main House was built in 1952 and retains the flavor of the 50’s. It houses a kitchen, dining hall, a living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom with a bathtub and shower.Our  Lodge currently houses Joe and Wendy Moore and their three children. Joe and Wendy live sustainably off the land and offer workshops on a number of sustainable practices. They will be available to help if help is needed. They also have emergency phone service to the outside world, … emphasis on “emergency”. The Upper Barn is upstairs above the Barn and has it's own bathroom.Our Pumpkin & Blue Cottages each sleep 4-5 people. They are close to the shower house and toilets, and have hot and cold running water, a propane cooktop, and a wood stove for heat. We do NOT HAVE refrigeration, and we now have some solar battery electricity for lights at nigh or if the generator is on. We try not to turn it on very often.  Campers who use our Cottages may use their own sleeping bags, but we have beds with mattresses and pillows and clean bedding.  Then, ... for an adventure, there is our Romantic Tipi, that sleeps two (or three), and has it’s own fire pit and full size bed.Our Riverview Yurt will appeal to folks who want a full kitchen, a private shower and flush toilet overlooking the Klamath river from the 50 x 50 foot upper deck. Luscious to sit outside and watch the river flow by during the day, and to let the water lull you to sleep at night. For families (up to 8), old friends, folks who like to fish, or just for a very special get-away.We also have a plenty of places to camp. Our Maple River Camp and Grotto River Camp tent sites overlook the gorgeous Klamath River. Our Otter Space Meadow tent sites (Orchard Meadow, Morning Meadow, Deer Meadow), each have a picnic table and a fire pit and are close to our 5 acre meadow where blacktail deer graze in the evenings. Our Yellow Shower House has two separate sides, each with a toilet, sink and shower with on demand hot water, so folks don't have to wait. There is also a new Camp Shower at the corner of the orchard for our campers,, and we have an outhouse at the bottom of the road down to the meadow, and another in the woods just past Deer Meadow Camp.  Feel free to pee outside (with discretion if there are other campers present), for any solid waste, please use the appropriate accommodations.  Please be considerate of others.We see lots of wildlife, we have silver foxes, a bald eagle, a family of river otters just downstream, ... we see vultures and blue heron and osprey who fly overhead when they catch a salmon and call to each other to brag about it! Sometimes we see timid black bears who run from humans but sometimes can be seen grazing in the meadow with the black-tail deer. We are surrounded by old logging trails made by the lumber companies 80 years ago when they clear cut the old growth redwood on our side of the mountain, and now it's completely reforested with 200 ft tall Doug Fir, Madrone, Cedar, Oak, other pine species and Pepper wood trees.

Camping near Crescent City guide

California's northernmost coastal city, Crescent City is a good spot to fuel up on gas or pick up supplies if you're making your way down from the Pacific Northwest to visit the nearby redwood forests. The compact city also has a few historic attractions of note, including the Battery Point Lighthouse, which dates back to the 1850s, and the remnants of the SS Emidio, which ran aground in the area in 1942. The Trees of Mystery, a roadside attraction featuring a canopy walk and a gondola, is less than a half-hour drive away. You’ll have plenty of sights to see by day before heading back to your Crescent City area campground come nightfall.

Where to Go

The California Redwoods

Crescent City makes a great base for exploring the redwood Forest, named for the mammoth species of trees that dominate here, some of which are over a thousand years old. Here you can cruise along the 32-mile Avenue of the Giants to get great views of the forest, hike along the quiet Tall Trees Grove Trail, or even drive your car through a hollowed-out tree.

The California Coast Ranges

The coastal mountains inland from Crescent City Range offer ample opportunities for camping and backpacking, with a mix of deciduous and coniferous forests interspersed with streams and lakes. Much of the northern part of the range is preserved as the Klamath National Forest and the Six River National Forest.

Oregon's South Coast

Crescent City is less than a half-hour drive from the border with Oregon and offers easy access to what's arguably the prettiest stretch of the state's dramatic coastline. Spots worth visiting include the gorgeous Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor and the city of Coos Bay, known for its ample crabbing opportunities.

When to Go

Crescent City has a temperate climate, with highs in the mid-50s in winter and in the mid-60s in summer. Winters here are considerably rainier than in the summer months, however, with an average of 14 days of rain in December and barely any showers at all in July and August. If you plan to hike or camp in the nearby redwoods, and don’t want to deal with summer crowds, consider visiting in September or early October.
