Orange County Parks - Dana Point, California Parks

Dana Point Harbor
34451 Ensenada Place
Dana Point 92629
(949) 923-2255
One of California's most romantic spots is also of its most historical. This area bears the name of American author Richard Henry Dana who marveled at its beauty in the mid-1800s while on his famed voyage, recounted in Two Years Before The Mast. The harbor provides anchorage for over 2,500 pleasure craft, yet is much more than a boating facility. The Orange County Marine Institute offers an opportunity for marine study and discovery.
Recreational amenities include a park, a calm water swimming beach, fishing pier and a variety of restaurants and shops catering to the casual visitor and boating enthusiasts. Sportfishing and Catalina Island excursions are available year-round, with whale-watching trips scheduled seasonally. Webcam

Dana Point 92629

For the ninth straight year, Doheny State Beach is the readers' choice as the County's "Best Camping Site". The result was in response to the Orange County Register's 9th annual Best of Orange County survey. Doheny is described as "...beach camping at its best -- natural coves, unspoiled shoreline, ocean waves and sand in your toes, all set amid the smoky scents of barbecue." Great place for body surfing, beach rental equipment, tidepools, and camping.
