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

One of my favorite CA beaches. Weird to hear people gripe about $15 parking fee. I guess they don't know that you get most of that $$ back as a credit if you have lunch at the restaurant. It's a bit pricey, but excellent food, and it's right on the sand, with beautiful views. Problem is, on a busy weekend,... More

If you are willing to pay $15 to avoid the crowds of Laguna, this is the place. It is a beautiful sandy beach with neat rock formations and tide pools where the little ones can search for sea critters. We had a great day and there was hardly anyone there.

I can totally see where what the state has done to the cottages area (fix up some of the buildings, do a god-awful "private-public partnership" up the prices, etc. Just go down south two more stoplights to the street called "Reef Point" and go down to either of two beaches, Scotchman's Cove or Muddy Creek. Both of these have their... More

Crystal Cove has some very unique lodging right on the beach. This is a colony of old fashioned beach cottages that are being restored for public use. All the charm is preserved! We were luck enough to stay in the cottages and had an amazing time. The staff was friendly, the cottages comfortable. Best of all was to wake up... More

We would go back again. Agree that the $15 price is a little steep for what you get, but it is for the entire vehicle of people and I would pay it again. This is a rustic park with modern bathrooms. We spent our entire time at parking lot # 2. First you walk / jog through a coastline "desert"... More

We enjoyed our walk through this park on the bluff then along the water. It was interesting to see such a natural area in such a built up part of the shoreline. The waves were huge that day due to off shore storms, so there was a lot of flotsam on the beach but that did not bother us at... More

Dirty beach and shore line, $15 was a total ripoff - luckily we found $10 which softened the blow! stayed an hour max - will never go back. The cottages looked awful and cramped also
