Crystal Cove State Park is located on the shared ancestral territory of the Acjachemen and Tongva nations. We are committed to uplifting the name of these lands and community members from these Nations who reside alongside us.
Crystal Cove State Park is one of Orange County’s largest remaining examples of open space and natural seashore. It features 3.2 miles of beach, 2,400 acres of backcountry wilderness and an offshore underwater area. The park also features the federally listed Historic District, an enclave of forty-six vintage coastal cottages originally built as a seaside colony in the 1930s and 1940s nestled around the mouth of Los Trancos Creek.
The park offers miles of backcountry hiking trails in the unspoiled Moro Canyon watershed, dozens of beachside and backcountry campsites, the charming mid-century Historic District, and more than three miles of the most spectacular unspoiled beaches on the coast of California.
