“Excellent newer park near Laguna and Newport Beach”

Reviewed Dec 03, 2017

Overall Rating

This is an expensive State Park ($75/night). The location is very convenient to Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. The grounds are very clean and the RV sites are 30/50 amp W/E. I'm surprised and disappointed to not have sewer given this is such a new park. If it had sewer, it would be 5 stars. The walking trails are great for the dogs. ... more

“Beautiful views! Big sites! Clean Restrooms! ”

Im just adding another 5 star review here.... our site, #57, was on the Dolphin Loop, which is the nearest to the edge of the bluff. The views are fantastic (unless the fog rolls in), the site is huge and its directly across from the very clean showers and restrooms. The staff was super nice, and kept the place in tip-top shape.

“Clean, well maintained with amazing coastal views”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2017

We stayed in one of the many dry camping spots closer to the coast (the Pacific Coast Highway runs between the park and the coast) in the the Dolphin Loop. We saw both whales and dolphins from our site, which was pretty amazing. You'll have a full uninterrupted panoramic view of the coast from your site. The site was clean, well spa... more

“Quiet campground with amazing view”

Reviewed Jan 30, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here during October of 2015 and absolutely loved it. We were the second row of RVs up from the ocean (around spot 19). All of the sites have plenty of space around the RV and then a large area on the beach side to hang out and enjoy the view. The campground is very quiet and everyone was super respectful; it gets very dark... more

We've stayed her a few times, it's easy and close for us,and a very clean campground with amazing views as others have stated. I'm surprised anyone has gotten in before 3pm- they're usually very strict on the check in time. Also- please note there are no campfires here. You CAN bring a portable propane fire pit, and you'll see a lot... more

What a place! We loved our stay here. We arrived at 2 pm, but the ranger checked us in and told us to arrive after 3 pm next time. I don't understand why the have a firm 3 pm check-in time, but it was kind of him to let us through. We had reserved a site with water and electric hookups, and everything worked just fine.

“Loved it, but steep walk to the water!”

We loved staying here but I wanted to add that the walk from the campground to the beach is pretty darn steep and was difficult with little kids plus stroller. You can drive down and park close to the beach entrance, but we didn't want to move, unplug, etc. One of the prettiest beaches I've seen in California. Gorgeous on the water ... more

We arrived early and found ourselves redirected to a parking lot across the street to wait for the late checkin at 3pm (not a minute before and absolutely NO exceptions). Of course a beach walk while we waited was great! The pass for the campground is also good at all the associated parking lots along the Crystal Cove area - a nic... more

While I have lived in the Orange County area my entire life, the beauty of Crystal Cove amazes me every time I visit. The campground at Crystal Cove sits on a bluff overlooking Crystal Cove. Each site provides a excellent view of the ocean and Catalina Island (when clear). Sites closer to the beach (51-60) provide views of the beach o... more
