Crystal Cove State Park

Located just north of Laguna Beach, this beautiful stretch of land features rustic, overnight campsites, a stretch of coastal cliffs and a beach front cove sandwiched between Pacific Coast Highway and the Pacific Ocean. Crystal Cove is used by mountain bikers inland and scuba and skin divers underwater. The beach is popular with both swimmers and surfers.

This is not beach camping. After you park your car in El Moro parking lot, you must hike inland about three miles, mostly uphill. The trail is strenuous at times and is in the opposite direction from the beach. Some people report that it takes two hours to reach the campgrounds, one way, while others report six hours. You must pack everything in, including water.
