Caspar website header

Caspar is a small unicorporated village on the north coast of California. Caspar's cluster of houses huddles together for protection from the storms and big ocean. Caspar is practically invisible to folks whizzing past along Highway One -- a steeple (now the Jewish Community Center), a schoolhouse (now the Community Center) and the remnants of a thriving turn-of-the-century mill town. Caspar (pop. 500+/-) lies between Fort Bragg, our local ‘big town’ and Mendocino, the tourist destination. Caspar is blessed with two perfect beaches, a community center, a bar, a shul, businesses, and a strong sense of place. At least wave when you drive by!

If you want to be universal,
sing your village.

Help us keep the Center open!

We rigorously comply with Mendocino County's Covid-19 directives. We are thrilled to announce that these directives now allow us to gather with care!


Caspar Community* governs itself by consensus according to its mission statement, “To Preserve and Protect the Quality of All Life in Caspar.” We value inclusion -- if you think you are a Caspar, you are! -- and sustainability: we are working from a hundred-year plan and expect to keep on doing what we keep on doing for a very long time. Governance is managed by the Caspar Community Board.

Next Meeting
Caspar Community Board meets on 2nd and 4th Fridays at 9:30am.
