*********************************

Notes: A day parking fee at Crystal Cove is $15 which you pay when you leave. If you spend $15+ dining/ordering from Beachcomber, they will validate your parking fee!!!

You may try parking at Trader Joe's across the street but do it at your own risk. :\ Albeit, spending $15 to help keep the state park well-maintained isn't that bad!~ :)

 

 

For your convenience, I've created a carpool list :)
