There are three primitive sites at Crystal cove. I've stayed at two. Both Morro locations.

Lower is a 3 mile hike with a few steep grades. 13 sites an outhouse and a decent view. This one is normally supporting several groups on weekends. There is no water. Be sure to carry enough. No power, no light.

Upper Morrow is another 20 minutes worth of hiking with 20+ spots and usually no one. People tend to stop at lower.

The park is small. The perimeter loop is under ten miles. Super bike friendly, but dosnt allow any animals.

Note that there's a $25 fee

Pretty but on the PCH

Very well maintained campground with RV and tent sites. It’s right on the PCH so you get some great views of the pacific and the beach is just across the highway. It’s a bit noisy since the PCH is a heavily traveled highway and isn’t very remote, if that’s what you’re looking for. Great campground for families.

Best OC Beach camping around

Of all the places in orange county to camp this one is by far the best choice. Beautiful beaches and fantastic area.

nearby, less crowded

its close, so no 2 hour drive needed and its usually got open spots available, even in spring and summer (cause of the 3+ mile hike most likely). wouldn't say it has the best views but good when you just want to get out there
