Crystal Cove State Park Beach Cottages Comments & Reviews
Visited Crystal Cove State Park Beach Cottages Campground lately? We'd love to hear about your adventure. Did you find us useful? Did we forget something? Anything our community should know before heading out to Crystal Cove State Park Beach Cottages?
If you’re looking for a romantic getaway this is the place! You will have to be ready to reserve this place the minute it opens up. I mean have your finger on the cursor the second a spot becomes available. It’s really hard to book a spot! You won’t be disappointed, however if you are lucky enough to get in. Cottage 33 is lovely and for the money it’s more than a bargain. Just try and find a house on the beach for this price outside of the state park system- impossible! Plan at least two nights to enjoy the cottage and the shoreline. There is a deck with a table and chairs, perfect for a meal outdoors. The sound of the ocean waves and the amazing sunset will provide a perfect background for a romantic evening.
