Description

A simple driveway location and possible pull through with advanced notice (I keep a small trailer at the second gate of a large U-driveway). The driveway is an additional 30 feet or so deeper than the picture shows. It is available and convenient for those traveling along CA395 or CA14 through to places like Death Valley, Sequoia National Forest, or Mt. Whitney, Mammoth, etc.

The yard is approx 1 acre and fenced in, so dogs are more than welcome (but be aware that bigger dogs may be able to jump the 3 foot high front fence).

Simple amenities are available, such as outside water spigots or battery charging, but full time hookups are not available. Slideouts are possible depending on actual parking location - one side of the driveway may be potentially limited by small trees.

(I also have a BTV5 Antenna easily available for for Amateur Radio License holders)

There here is a small RV park at the south end of the Ridgecrest Desert Fairgrounds, approximately 3 easy miles from this location, with a dump site is just north of the RV park. Lots of room to negotiate any size rig. $10 or less.

House Rules

None in particular, other than no outside wood fires, and respect for the neighbors' privacy.

Location

Ridgecrest, CA, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

Ridgecrest is a sort of crossroads about 120 miles north of Los Angeles and 300 miles south of Carson City, NV., the home of one of the US Navy NavAir Bases. The Navy offers a museum and occasional tours to the well-known Little Petroglyph Canyon. Ridgecrest also offers the Maturango Museum, whose mission is to preserve, interpret, and develop an appreciation for the natural and cultural history of the Northern Mojave Desert.

And of course the wonderful Indian Wells Brewery just a short 15 minutes away.

It is 110 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park and approx 90 miles southeast of Sequoia National Park. This location is also about 15 miles from the Trona Pinnacles, an unusual geological feature in the California Desert National Conservation Area with more than 500 tufa spires, some as high as 140 feet, rising from the bed of the Searles Lake basin.

JCC is a very accomodating host!

JCC has a great yard for dogs. Large and fenced. He is an interesting and quiet host. The shade he provided was critical to our comfort. I would love to stay again next time I am in Ridgecrest!
