Sympathy, if any, should be extended to the taxpayers of the state
who are tired of waiting.
It certainly is great news that at last by 2004 the El Morro
Trailer Park, including the beach, will be converted to campsites and
day use for the California public. We have been waiting for 25 years,
since the purchase by the state parks, for this to happen.
Those fortunate people who have been able to live there all these
years will now have to step aside and allow those of us who have been
kept out have our chance to enjoy this wonderful area.

Yes, I am absolutely convinced that a camping site and
recreational site is needed and wanted and will make exceptionally
fine use of a beautiful beach that few can use at the present moment.
Problems that must be solved:
The place needs a new name. There is already El Moro State Park in
Northern California. How about a contest to rename the place. Let the
kids get involved. Laguna Beach State Park would have my vote.
El Morro school site must be fenced off and completely protected
from predations by strangers having access to our kids.
Pedestrian access to the beach can still be made by tunnel or a
new pedestrian overpass like the one at Aliso Creek. Please try not
to put another traffic signal out there for pedestrians to ignore.
Because I formerly lived in Malibu it was a pleasure to know that
folks could camp on the beach at Leo Carillo State Beach right up the
coast and I often took my kids there. Now I could take my
grandchildren. We've been on the beach at Doheny in Dana Point and
the campgrounds are nice but crowded. The picnic grounds are nice but
crowded. Let's be visionary and add 2,800 acres of recreational land
to our community.
Go for it! What help do you need?

El Moro not good place for campground
No, for many reasons, the school is too close: traffic, trash,
pollution, transients and that's just to mention a few. But the most
important reason is the state should not have the to right to make
