Took the ferry from San Clemente to Avalon (45 mins to 1 hour). Then a bus from Avalon to the campsite (1 to 1.5 hours depending the stop at the airport). Went with a group and had to carry all your equipment and food for the weekend. The buses have plenty of room for coolers. Any last minute food items can be bought at the small grocery store in Avalon, but you'll pay for it. Once you leave Avalon, you are at the mercy of the bus schedules in order to get back to a store, which buses only come by the campsite a limited amount of times through the day or week.
Beach and cove is great for spearfishing or snorkeling. Rock cliffs wrap both north and south of the beach for miles and there are kayaks for rent on the beach, but need to pre-order.
Overall a great location to isolate yourself or with company on a sandy beach, BBQ, drink and relax.
Sites are right on the beach in a little cove. Check this one out.
Most ppl skip this lil gem on the TCT but its my personal favorite. The water is clean and great for snorkeling and the campsites all have amazing views of the cove. Water is available and you can have firewood delivered right to your site. Small, remote and peaceful. Wish I'd stayed another night.
Such a beautiful campground, and if you're lucky enough (like we were) you may get the whole place to yourself. The beach is beautiful, and there's nothing like the sunsets here.
One of the most beautiful campsites I've been to.
Easiest way to get there is via Two Harbors then either hike into the site or hire a shuttle for a ride. No onsite store, so you'll need to pack in everything you need.
If arriving by boat - There is a anchorage in little harbor but it can be tricky if not set correctly. Make sure you set a bow and stern to prevent swinging into the rocks. Consult the local chart for soundings and beta for anchor line length.
Firepit - fire wood available for delivery just check with ranger, Outdoor Shower and bathroom.
Between the camping at little harbor and the cabins in two harbors Catalina Island is a great getaway only a short boat ride away! There's a general store in two harbors if you forget anything!
