There are a lot of reviews of the beach here, but Crystal Cove State Park is much more than that. Crystal Cove's back country is laced with trails that run through and around beautiful El Moro Canyon. All are well-suited for day hikes and bike rides, and there are a few different camping areas - two on Moro ridge and another in Deer Canyon. This is about as close to wilderness camping as you're likely to get in this area: it's a 3 mile hike (mostly uphill) to Lower Moro campground, and you'll need to bring your own water. Beware of rattlesnakes. No open fires are allowed anywhere in the park - and this is strictly enforced by rangers and helicopter patrols - so be sure to bring a propane camp stove if you need to cook. The relative difficulty of reaching and using the campsite is rewarded by a peaceful evening with a great view of the Pacific.
