Some of the best car camping in Southern California! Located right off the PCH in the Laguna Beach area, Crystal Cove State Park sports a newer campground complete with well equipped amenities, and prime ocean views. The campground sits above the beach, overlooking the Pacific and has an easy walk to a beach that is virtually empty. The sites are spacious but very exposed. You'll want to reserve a site far in advance, and try to book somewhere between site 42-60.
