About Willow Cove on Catalina Island in Avalon, California

Willow Cove Beach is a boat-in campground on the northeast shore of Catalina Island. Boating and sea kayaking are your only options as there are no roads or official trails that lead to it.

Kayaks can be rented in the towns of Avalon and Two Harbors, but Willow Cove is much closer to Avalon (it’s the closest boat-in camp to Avalon).

Reservations are required to stay overnight in this cove and many rules apply. Learn more about boat-in camping on Catalina Island.

The Catalina Express ferries depart daily to Catalina Island from the mainland in Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Dana Point.
