Crystal Cove Camping Southern California

Trailers at Crystal Cove All that is left of the trailer park above Crystal Cove Beach is pictures like the one above. Construction crews are clearing the 35 acres of canyon and beach, and transforming the site into Southern California's first coastal campground in two decades. Workers are now ripping out nonnative plants, removing concrete foundations, demolishing outbuildings, and taking out old power lines and other infrastructure, said Ken Kramer, Orange Coast District superintendent for California State Parks. The project is expected to take two years and the campground should be open by summer 2010. While the new campground is built a lucky few can rent one of the restored beach front Crystal Cove Cottages.
