“Beautiful location, odd rules & unhappy staff”

We are from So. California originally, so have been to Crystal Cove in years past, but this was our first time coming in a long time. There are several entrances to the park as a whole. None of them indicate where the campground is and the entrance to the CG (at the El Morro entrance) is a little unusual. It looks like you are turn... more

“The first thing they said when we checked in was we are super strict here”

Reviewed Nov 12, 2018

Overall Rating

So many people recommended this place to us, and while it was perfectly nice- we didn’t really feel the wow factor. Now maybe we’ve been ruined by spending the last 3 months on the coast staying in as many beachfront and ocean view spots as possible. We stayed in a “tent” spot with no hookups since it was all that was available and ... more

“No dogs allowed on beach OR hiking trails, and no shade.”

Reviewed Oct 24, 2018

Overall Rating

My second time staying here and might stay again (Campendium, we need a "maybe" for the would you camp here again.:-)) Showers are clean and warm enough. Pitches have zero shade but there is a nice breeze almost constantly. Nice view of the ocean, but no dogs on the miles of trails or the beach. Convenient to Laguna. Pricey though... more

“One of the nicer state run campsites”

Reviewed Oct 15, 2018

Overall Rating

Great location nestled between Laguna Beach and Newport, this location has a lot to offer. The beach is nice, and the hiking trails are even better. For kids there are plenty of places to ride bikes and scooters along the paved coastal trail away from traffic. Several sites have hookups, and I think they all have a true ocean view. ... more

“An impressive spot amidst blighted affluence”

Reviewed May 07, 2018

Overall Rating

Fees: $75 a night plus a 7.99 reservation fee. Water and electricity. This campground overlooks the Pacific Ocean. All of the camp sites have a view of the water since the park sits on a bluff and the campground is terraced. It’s quite a location. The rest of the park is also fascinating. There is access to the beach and wonderful ti... more

This is a solid 5-star state park. I can’t say enough good things about this park. The staff is awesome, the views are amazing, you can walk to the beach, and the list goes on. Laguna Beach is 10 minutes to the south. Corona Del Mar and Newport Beach are 10 minutes to the north. You can easily get to the freeways. The sites are a mix o... more

“Beautiful views and beaches”

What a beautiful view of the ocean from high up on a bluff over the sea. The beach is amazing. I think it’s over two miles long with tidal pools to explore. There were lots of trails into the hills. We walked for an hour on one and found it quite peaceful. There was a Trader Joe’s about five minutes from the campground. The bathr... more

“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

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.
