The Little, Brave House!
The dwelling is cute, comfy and remote. I'm not a roughing-it type of person, but I adjusted to the toilet situation just fine. I have never had to pack-out my refuse/waste before. Had to drive it all to San Louis Obispo and put in the dumpster of a restaurant. A kind person left their unused propane behind, so we were able to use the camp stove to boil water for tea and oatmeal. Used the grill to make veggie burgers. The bed was comfortable. The roads were very rough getting there-huge potholes. We had a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV, and we struggled, had to go very slow. Do not recommend driving in the dark. Communication about the property, how to get there, what to bring, etc. was spot on.

The Little, Brave House!
A great roof in Carrizo Plain
The Little Brave house was just what we needed after unexpected wind and rain. Beautiful wildflowers literally right outside the door. Morning rainbows to boot! Clean and comfortable. Helpful directions and responsive host. The little propane heater was a very welcome accoutrement indeed!

Howling coyotes & sunsets
Such an incredible stay! Truly such a beautiful plot of land. Loved listening to the distant coyotes and wildlife. It was so cozy and warm and hope to be back soon!!

Crescent City Camping (Private)
Easy to get to
This was a mostly fine stop on our way up to Oregon. It was grassy with trees on one side and flat, small picnic table, hammock and nice fire pit we’re provided. We added on the bundle of firewood and it was there when we arrived, 2 of the pieces were already partially burned so that was weird. There is a house across the road with a crazy bright floodlight pointed straight at this area so be choosy about where you set up your tent or vehicle. There were two tent sites and we couldn’t remember which one we booked so we texted the host and never got a response, of course we figured it out but I’m glad we didn’t actually need anything. The toilet provided was a gross port a potty and the shower was an empty sunshower hanging at your site. Like I said, it was fine for one night, but I prefer a clean bathroom for the price.

Crescent City RV Space (Private)
Convenient, Peaceful & Dry (covered
This is a wonderful place to camp in Crescent City. It is in a little neighborhood, but quiet and peaceful, with the beach and redwoods just a short bike ride away. We loved the covered site for our camper van. It was perfect to keep our stuff dry when the fog came in during the night. We loved seeing the chickens and visiting with the sweet pot belly pig.
