Dana Point has several communities that offer enough land and space to allow for RV parking.  Since Dana Point has so many communities that are under a homeowner association it's difficult to find space for RV parking since there are many rules and regulations put in place to restrict homeowners from doing this.  It's much easier to find an older community that is not under a homeowners association that allows for more freedom to do various things without a community oversight.  One such area is the Capistrano Beach area.
