Nice views. Parking gets full quickly in the summer. Walk down stairs to get to beach. Fun place to go to with kids. Some hiking is available. Beautiful sunsets always. Nice beach for families. Not recommended for persons not able to walk down stairs.

Nice clean state park with beautiful views. Good prices good showers ,clean and has power hook up . This is a great location if you want to explore the south side of LA. The views here are some of the best from any campgrounds in the area. Cool shops within 10 minutes.I really like this place and very good value.

We were staying in nearby Newport Beach for a conference and walked in the park each day. The admission is reasonable, $5.00 per hour, you can walk along the bluffs overlooking the Pacific with your dog, or along the beach enjoying the waterfowl. The Park is about three miles long. If you are hungry and come early, walk down to... More

We stayed at site 54 which was right on the edge overlooking the water. Directly beneath us were some benches for people to use to enjoy the amazing sunset. The site it set up beautifully. I am only giving it 4 stars for 2 reasons 1. the camp ranger/ check in people are a bit a chauvinistic, rude, and arrogant.... More

Did not stay in the cottages - that takes more money and planning than I had (you reserve seven months in advance on line and they fill up instantly). Stayed across the street and walked in (free) every day on morning rambles. What a great place to walk around on a morning ramble. You get ocean views, beach views, old... More

We booked a camping spot closest to the beach for our little campervan and the view out over the ocean as the sun set was amazing. Nice beach just across the highway (although the road does spoil the ambience slightly) - toilets and showers were good although waits in mornings and afternoons could occur.

We just returned from our first visit to the Moro Campground in Crystal Cove State Park. If you book online at reserveamerica.com be sure you reserve at the correct campground! We heard about families who showed up at this location on the coast but had reservations for the remote inland tent sites that are only reached by a 3 1/2... More

Friends of ours are camp hosts here during the winter and we were so happy we made the drive all the way from Bellingham to this campsite for a few days of quiet in the desert. The ocean view is truly awe inspiring. The RV parking offers this view from every site. Good clean restroom and shower facilities. We visited... More

We used the RV Park here and it made for a very tranquil and enjoyable start to a vacation after leaving the bustle of LA. There are no sewage hook-ups but all other facilities are in good order and the service and welcome were exemplary. It is a huge bonus to have an easy walk down to a beautiful beach... More

Crystal cove state park is worth the walk. Parking is plentiful and if you are unable to walk down to the shore a shuttle is available for a fee. The path is paved but a little steep. There are a number of clean modern rest rooms and lots of helpful staff to steer you in the right direction The cove... More
