Mobile home park makes way for new CA State Park campground

Those living at Crystal Cove State Park say farewell to their slice of paradise -- and to a 26-year battle to stay there.

By day's end Wednesday, there was little left at the El Morro Village mobile home park besides vacant trailers and makeshift memorials of sprawled lawn chairs and sun umbrellas.

"This was a place where if you were rich, poor, young or old, you just got along with everybody," said Bryan Wallace, 36, of Dana Point, whose family lived there summers and weekends since he was a child.

"This has been hard for me and my family to say goodbye."

By fall, the enclave tucked into a hillside between Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach will begin to take shape as a public campground, RV park and a sandy beach unencumbered by trailers. It is due to open by 2008. Full Story...
