Crystal Cove State Park in Orange County, California has 3.2 miles of beach and 2,400-acre of undeveloped woodland, which is popular for hiking and horseback riding. The offshore waters are designated as an underwater park. Crystal Cove is used by mountain bikers inland and scuba and skin divers underwater. The beach is popular with swimmers and surfers. Visitors can explore tidepools and sandy coves. Crystal Cove offers sand and surf, rocky reefs, open bluffs, ridges and canyons - plus recreational opportunities - that appeal to everybody. State Park Rangers conduct nature hikes in the winter.

The park features three miles of Pacific coastline, wooded canyons, open bluffs, and offshore waters designated as an underwater park. Crystal Cove is not just used by people who enjoy water related activities, such as swimming, surfing, sunbathing, scuba and skin diving, but also people who like to fish, mountain bike and hike. Dogs are confined to a paved area. They are not permitted on the beach or in the backcountry. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited throughout the park.

Lifeguard Services at Crystal Cove are provided by the California State Parks Lifeguard Service. Lifeguards patrol the beach year round while lifeguard towers are staffed roughly Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.

Visitors not camping overnight are required to leave the park by sunset. Camping is permitted in three designated areas of the San Joaquin Hills to the north and east of the Pacific Coast Highway. The camp sites are approximately 3 miles inland, each a strenuous uphill hike taking between 3 to 6 hours each way. There is no beach camping. There is no food or water other than what you carry in yourself. Campers are able to feel that they are "away from it all," despite being relatively near some of the greatest population centers in the United States.
