We decided last minute to try Crystal Cove for camping during the month of June. They luckily had space and we were fit into a really nice spot. It was a tad tight for us, but very private. We have a large rig and we noted other spots that would fit us for the next time (fingers crossed they are avail). What we loved, our family of a dog and 1 child, was that it is right next to the beach and was VERY pet friendly with a great playground area for the kids. Every single night, we'd head back down to the beach for the sunset walk and our dog and child could get yet another run. I loved the 'dog wash' as you come off the beach and back to the camp site. Water available for them and poop bags. Perfection. There is nothing at all I can say that is wrong with this campground. Full hookup too! BONUS. We heard nothing from the cabins around us and very little from the other campers. Free firewood was a definite plus because that meant we didn't have to lug our own in or get price gouged. Speaking of price, yes, it seems pricey initially, but when you factor in that you are getting full hookups, free firewood, and access to one of the most beautiful beaches on earth, it is a small price to pay for that kind of peace and quiet and those amenities. Very well managed as well and the staff always seem willing to entertain requests even though they are obviously busy with other customers. We will return - worth even spending the money on the ferry to get back there... next to Living Forest, this place is a must-stay and one of my ultimate favourites. We stayed for 4 nights.
