Keep reading to find out how to plan the perfect RV camping adventure in Crystal Cove State Park.
As you’d probably expect, the ideal place to start your Crystal Cove State Park camping experience is at the beach. With over three miles of sandy shoreline to explore, the park is always popular with surfers, swimmers, and sunbathers. There are sheltered coves and tide pools to investigate, which should be more than enough to keep beachcombers of all ages entertained for hours.
When you’re ready to venture away from the sand, you can either turn inland or head further out into the water. Look inland and you’ll find some 2,400 acres of backcountry wilderness just waiting to be discovered.
If you love hiking, plan a route and test your abilities on the 18 miles of trails winding their way through the park. The three-mile, one-hour journey to Moro Canyon is a particular favorite that offers impressive views, while the strenuous nine-mile loop around the park perimeter is a great way to immerse yourself in the backcountry. Many trails also draw mountain bikers from far and wide, so remember to pack your bike if you feel like working up a sweat.
If you decide to head for the water, you’ll be happy to learn that the offshore waters play host to a State Marine Conservation Area. With its rocky reefs and abundant marine life, this area is popular with scuba divers keen to get up close and personal with everything from California spiny lobsters to leopard sharks – well worth checking out for any underwater enthusiast.
Camping at Crystal Cove State Park
While there are some spectacular and remote primitive sites available, if you want to camp in an RV in Crystal Cove State Park, you’ll need to head to Moro Campground. Located atop impressive coastal bluffs, the campground features 57 sites – 27 of those are set aside for RVs and trailers, with the remaining 30 designed to accommodate tents. Electric and water hookups are available at the RV campsites.
Restrooms and showers are provided in the campground, and pets kept on a leash of six feet or shorter are also permitted. A dump station is also available, and the campground provides easy access to the Moro Canyon Trail. However, please note that the maximum length for motorhomes and trailers in Crystal Cove State Park is 35 feet.
Exploring the Area
Before your Crystal Cove State Park RV camping adventure comes to an end, make sure you also check out the Crystal Cove Historic District. This 12-acre area nestled on the coast features more than 40 rustic cottages built in the 1930s and 1940s, so visitors often feel like they’re stepping back in time. You’ll also find a beachside cafe in the historic district which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Afterward, why not load up your rental RV and set out to enjoy some of the countless attractions and activities on offer in this corner of California? Of course, what you do and where you go next is entirely up to you. If you’re keen to spend some more time on the sand, you might want to explore Laguna Beach or Huntington Beach. If you want to get back to nature, the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park encompasses around 7,000 acres and offers excellent trails for hikers and mountain bikers.
Anyone traveling with kids will no doubt be tempted to check out Disneyland, which is around half an hour away in Anaheim. And if you’re searching for something a little more glamorous, the world-famous streets of Hollywood are just over 50 miles away.
There’s so much to see and do in Southern California that you’ll struggle to fit it all in, so rent a camper near Crystal Cove State Park and start putting together your perfect travel itinerary.

Perfect spot for wake up in the ocean breeze, and dinner with Pacific Sunset, a couple nights of relaxation will rejuvenate you in both heart and soul. A must visit with beach front and surfing .....
One of the last spots you can actually camp on the beach. I have been going there for 20 years.

Great place to camp! It's a quiet place on the beach that's both kid and dog friendly.
