Doheny State Beach

Near Dana Point California

For beach camping in Orange County, one popular spot is Doheny State Beach, just south of Dana Point.

From the beach, you can see the boats going in and out of Dana Point Harbor in the distance. There is a nice grassy picnic area and volleyball courts on the day use side of the beach at the north end. A lagoon with pelicans and shore birds separates the day use area with the camping beach on the south side. And, there's plenty of sand to kick back on.
