Description
Backcountry Tent Camping

Deer Canyon, Upper and Lower Moro Campgrounds

All Sites are a 3 mile hike inland from the parking lot. All Crystal Cove tent sites are accessible only by foot. All vehicles must be left at the park office. No Pets Allowed. No drinking water available, must pack it in. No trash cans available; pack it in, pack it out. Fires restricted to backpack stoves. This is NOT beach camping. After you park your car in El Moro lot, you must hike inland about three miles, mostly uphill. The trail is strenuous at times and is in the opposite direction from the beach. Some people report that it takes two hours to reach the campgrounds, one way, while others report six hours. You must pack everything in, including water. A picnic table and a pit toilet are available. No dogs, alcohol, or fires.

Great ocean view

Very clean campground where all sites are huge and have a beautiful view of the ocean. You can walk to the beach or drive down to the lower parking lot and walk under the freeway to the beach. There is great hiking from the campground or you can walk the beach for miles. Not far from Ruby's Shake Shack or the Beachcomber restaurant. Also close to the Laguna area for shopping and entertainment.

We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.

Beautiful park, big sites, on bluff above PCH. Millon dollar view. BUT, ridiculous checkin at 3PM policy(even when sites were empty) led to traffic jam at the gate!

We stayed here in a Class C Motorhome.
