Mission Restoration

The stretch between San Diego and Los Angeles became a state park in 1979, but the cottages remained privately owned until 2001. After nonprofit groups and local residents joined to halt plans for a resort here, the Crystal Cove Alliance and California State Parks rebuilt and restored 22 of 46 cottages. Thirteen now host overnight guests; restoration of the remainder is under way.
