John WD Smith,

As with most requests of this nature, it would help those who may want to advise you if you would give a little more information on what you want. Asking for suggestions on a "nice" RV park doesn't cut it. Do you want a private or public park, full hook ups, cable TV, WIFI at your site, family and/or pet friendly, shade, a pool, and on and on? Are we talking just overnight or and extended stay? There is no sense in somebody recommending a park that doesn't meet your needs/wants.

John, I can answer for our family that we would like to see the beach since we are land-locked Coloradans. We will visit Knotts berry farm and universial studios, and will visit the CBS studios for a taping of a show. We will probably be in the area for 3-4 days.
I was also wondering about public transportation since we don't travel with a towed, we would have to unhook to travel to the destinations listed
My boys are 12 and 16 so they wouldn't need a playground, but a pool woul be nice
What is the water temp of the ocean in late march? Too cold to swim in?

We're wanting to do the very same trip. Curious if you did go in March and where you guys stayed?

Yes we did go in march, and had a really good time. We actually did stay at Balboa RV park, as mentioned in previous post. I personally made the mistake of changing plans at the last minute, and booking 3 days at this park (rather than only booking one or two days, then going to the beach). The park is very cramped, and you cannot park any medium or large sized rigs without help from the management. The third night we met some friends by Disney and found a great deal (and lost out on my $$ we paid to Balboa, but didn't miss it). There is an attraction 2 blocks from Disney called "the gardenwalk" which is a collection of stores an restarunts. They have a parking garage and right at the entrance to the garge is a large area for busses. I asked if we could park there and they said we could stay during the day for free or stay overnight for $18.00 (no hookups). We stayed overnight and I thiought it was a pretty good deal. There actually is a little elect. Available. I hopped a small concrete wall and ran an extension cord to an outlet for an hour so my XYL could curl her hair.

We didn't see everything we wanted to see, but LA is a place you really need a full week, and a car.
