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 mile hike.
Also note that this campground is a couple of miles away from the Historic District with the cottages and the Beachcomber Restaurant. Not the same place, I have a feeling people who aren't familiar with the area occasionally get confused.
This campground really suited us! Nice views from every site, water and electric hookups on the upper rows. It's a good 1/4 mile down to the day use parking where you'll find a tunnel under PCH that leads to the beach, and.... it's a good 1/4 mile back up that steep hill. But we didn't mind at all. Hiking and biking trails in the hills on the inland side of Pacific Coast Highway, and miles of beautiful beaches to explore. The camp hosts during our stay were friendly and helpful.
We plan to stay here again in our motorhome, it's an hour from home so a very easy place to take a break for a few days.
