Crystal Cove State Park Lower Moro Campground

It's California's newest State Park campground, it's set on a terraced hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Below the campground is a day use area with beach access, just a short, but steep, walk from your campsite. Only free-standing tents are allowed, ground stakes use is prohibited. Campfires are not allowed. Another big drawback of the campsite is the traffic noise from PCH.

Campsite reservation through reserveamerica website.
