Never again! Pay attention to the other reviews here. We knew what we were getting into staying at Dockweiler - right beneath LAX airport, packed in like sardines, but also right on the beach. When they say packed in like sardines, they mean it! Your picnic table is UNDERNEATH your neighbors slide outs if they have them. What we did not count on was the noise, not from airplanes, but from constant drinking and partying within the park and on the adjacent beach. The adjacent beach has fire rings, which have been removed from most SoCal beaches in recent years because they attract huge groups of partying underage drinkers, drug use etc. But Dockweiler still has them so now all that activity is concentrated there. It was a nightmare. Fine during the day and could enjoy the beach, but come dinner time the beach will be overrun with over and under age drinking, drug use, parties and noise so loud that I literally had to yell in my daughters ear when she was sitting right next to me in the park. We told Park Security and they did NOTHING! We called LAPD, but they never showed. In chatting with other folks at Dockweiler who stay there on a regular basis, LAPD is called often because of this kind of madness. We will never stay again. If I hadn't needed to be on that side of L.A. for several days for medical treatment, we would have stayed in Long Beach. There are not many options in LA for RV parks unfortunately. If you can avoid Dockweiler, do so!!!!! - Tiffany Cartwright

This campground has both pros and cons. The pros are that the sites are literally steps away from the beach, even if the site is in the back rows of the campground. The beach is beautiful with pre-installed concrete fire pits. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The park seems to be maintained regularly. Although we did not use the public restrooms, they also had outdoor showers available for after coming from the beach. They were in good working order. The weather seems to be consistently mild, even during the middle of summertime. Hookups seemed to work fine at the site. The cons are that the campsite spaces are EXTREMELY close together. As this is a popular spot, there are people all over the place, packed in like sardines. It is nothing more than a large parking lot with hookups. It was so bad that we could not use one side of our assigned picnic table (which are concreted into the ground and not able to move) because the slide of the trailer next to us was covering it. It is difficult to navigate in the back row of the park due to the tight spots and vehicles all over the place. The sites seem to be random in terms of level. Some of the concrete is cracked, bubbled, or buckled, causing inconsistency in the pads. No cable connection. The worst part about this park is that it is right next to LAX Airport, which means there are airplanes taking off every 5 minutes all day and night and it is very loud. This is NOT an exaggeration! It wasn't as much of a distraction during the day, but difficult to get a full night's sleep at night. All of this said, the beach is so beautiful and the park is so close to major LA destinations that I would recommend staying here at least once for the experience. Campers will need to judge for themselves if they can put up with the loud noise and close campsites. - Urbanthesis

You need to know what you're getting with this park. First, LAX is directly behind this park, so every 90 seconds, you will hear the loud roar of a jet engine that will be VERY hard to ignore. I was able to sleep at night but I found it pretty annoying after a few days. It's basically just a parking lot with hookups but it's directly on the beach. The service is awful because the staff is run by the government and they clearly do not care about anything other than collecting money and otherwise doing as little else as possible. There isn't really anything around in the area other than the beach. The beach has fire pits everywhere so that's pretty cool (bring wood!). You'll have to drive to Venice Beach or Manhattan Beach or further to find any decent restaurants or bars. Parking isn't particularly great as you have to parallel park on the side of the road by your rig if it's of any length and it fills up at night. If you're coming for the beach and nothing else, this isn't a bad spot. Bonus points if your hearing doesn't work all that well! - Anthony D

This worked for a few nights in order to visit Universal and Hollywood area. I had read a few other reviews that said the spaces were small, but that was an understatement. We have a small sprinter motorhome (24') and was able to back carefully into an end space. But anyone with a trailer has to unhook, and then they maneuver the trailer into place with a forklift. And cars are parked in front of spaces and along the main alley, so once you are in your space, you're in. Every time someone needs to get in or out, 3 or 4 cars have to be moved. Overall the campground is clean and well kept. The laundry was clean and all the machines worked. Our site was clean and level. The neighborhood was a different story... it's right next to an airport so helicopters fly overhead all day. Panhandlers hang out at the 7-11 down the street. We stayed here because there are no other options for RVs in the area... and that's a shame, because at $65 for this place I would have been happy to pay big bucks for a modern comfortable RV park with normal sized sites. - jimandlisa

The name of the park has been changed to Hollywood RV Park effective January 1st, 2018. We stayed for two weeks. The weekly rate was $375 plus 14% tax (yes - 14% tax - California is crazy!). Our average all-in cost was $61.07/night. The reservation process was easy; check-in friendly and efficient. We were escorted to our site in the "back lot" which is basically an asphalt area with several 50amp/water hookups (no sewer). We knew in advance we would be there but it was the holiday season and we were glad to get in. Honey wagon service is available for free as needed and the maintenance guy was super nice and always helpful. Because the regular sites are fairly small/tight (most are not big rig size), we were quite happy to be in the back lot with some extra space. Satisfactory Verizon cell, Verizon Mifi and DirecTV signals. We did not try CG wifi so can't comment on that. The office was able to receive shipments which we appreciated. Although the CG backs to Van Nuys airport, it wasn't too noisy during the day and it was quiet at night. The location suited us because it allowed us to spend time with family. It's close to the 405 and 101 and there are lots of conveniences nearby including an In-N-Out Burger 1/2 mile away. The CG is well-managed and clean. Big laundry room with numerous machines and a large folding area. $1.00 wash and 75 cents dry (although you might need to run the dryer twice depending on what you're drying). Security at night is very attentive to vehicles entering the park. We met the owner who is actively involved in day-to-day operations. They have many long term tenants and the park is nearly full at all times. Reserve ahead if you can. If we need to be in the area, we would be happy to stay again. - GottaGoNow

Balboa RV Park is a medium-sized RV park with tight spacing. However, the office people helped you back-in and they are the best I've ever seen at directing. Once in place, the site felt larger than it was, as there was a lot of landscaping. The surface was asphalt with AstroTurf-like grass surrounding it. We had a picnic table and the full hookups worked fine. We had a dedicated parking spot for our tow car, right across from our site. Also right across from us was the large, clean laundry room and fairly nice restrooms/showers. The entire park was quite clean and (for a tightly spaced park) uncluttered, and not as noisy as I had expected; it was actually fairly quiet, everything considered. Everyone we met was very nice. WiFi was quite good, and I could get a strong Verizon signal. If we need to be in this area again, we would definitely stay there. - RobtL

Lovely city space. Large gravel spots, great clean pool, bathroom could use some updating but was fine. Laundry reasonable priced. Really nice staff. Recreation room with pool table and foosball, library, community kitchen. It is a busy RV park, if you are close to the entrance you will hear car noise, but not obtrusive. - Eliz Plam

This is a park in transition. Many long-time residents are being moved out to accommodate newer rigs at higher rates. Long term guests must sign a lease and agree to 15 pages of rules. The park is clean; the restrooms, while small, are clean and tidy. The laundry room could use some updating. The clubhouse is spacious but dull and poorly used. The pool was not open while we were there. The staff is very friendly and attentive. They do their best to provide a clean and quiet environment. Most long-term folks here are working people, so the park is largely empty during the daytime. - rfmscat

The one thing you do NOT have when staying in the LA area is choice. You come here for a safe place to park and hookups for your RV while you're going out to see the sights of LA.
We stayed in the front, and there is a LOT of traffic noise from sun up to midnight. It actually quiets down overnight, but when it's happening, it's loud. And there are a LOT of sirens. And trains.
There are quite a few long term renters who seemed nice and the place was clean and well-kept.
It's "pet friendly," but we were told not to let our dog go anywhere in the RV park. There is a strip of grass out front that pets use (on the high traffic street) or you can walk a couple of blocks to a park in the area.
The laundry was $1.50 a wash (top load) and $1.25 to dry (front load). The sites are gravel and wide enough for your RV and to park a vehicle, and our site was JUST long enough for our 40' RV. No tables or patio. There is a pool, laundry room, clubhouse. We were here a week and never saw anyone use the pool, and it needed to be cleaned.
The Wi-Fi worked but was SLOW, and from the other reviews I'm guessing we got a signal because we were near the clubhouse. - chasmyn

If you want to go into the city, this park might work. However the sites and roads around them are tight. We stayed in the area for 18' and under. The showers had no hot water, which I found out too late. The grounds were ill-kept, with few or no shade trees for the sites. The walk from our site to the restrooms was full of holes, perhaps made by animals. The place for the RVs was paved, but all else was mud or earth. In all, a disappointment. We would not return. - Atnt Life Grand

This was our 2nd time out in our RV, so we were not fully prepared. We are grateful to the camp hostess who gave us a number of tips on RV camping and for letting us borrow her clean-water hose. The restrooms were typical of the California State parks. They were clean, but cold. Showers were not hot but warm enough to warm you on a cold day. The campground is lush and green this time of year. My wife and I saw lots of ground squirrels and a few deer in the campground. - TARDISRV

First, the positives. Lots of wildlife to watch and listen to (singing coyotes, lots of deer, cottontails, ducks in the creek). Sites are huge, with tons of space in between. Lots of hiking trails (but not well maintained, unfortunately). Iron ranger takes credit cards! Friendly camp host. And, of course, the reason we came--the site where M*A*S*H was filmed. Now the cons: This is yet another victim of CA state park budget cuts. Roads, trails, bathhouses not well maintained. High price ($35) just to boon dock. No water for tanks and no dump station. Come prepared. We did feel pretty secure, though, as the park ranger did regular patrols and the camp host let us know that the ranger had both a sidearm and a rifle in case she needed help in rousting squatters (common here apparently) or rowdies (not uncommon on the weekends we heard). - JCLC

As others have said it's the only place to stay in Malibu. We stayed 3 nights,2 were in their "low" season so we were charged $110.00 per night & $120.00 for the third. Good little store for supplies and souvenirs with good prices. Cost of doing your laundry is a different story,$3.00 per wash and 1.50 per dryer load. We opted for a mountain view back in site that just fit our fifth wheel and truck. There was only enough room left over for the picnic table and a couple of chairs. Our site still had a view of the ocean without paying for it. When exiting the park after 1 pm on the main road you must make a right turn on to Pacific Coast Highway,go about a 1/4 mile anmake a u-turn through a gas station to head towards L.A. The other option is through their upper level to a street that will take you to a set of traffic lights to make a left turn. Good selection of cable channels but wifi is slow (which is normal for campgrounds). - Fun finders

The view is about as good as you can possibly get, as long as you're backed up to the ocean. Make sure you request an ocean view! It's obviously a more expensive park, and they don't have much in the way of amenities, other than the wonderful views. That said, Malibu is of course expensive in general, and this is the only RV park in the area on the ocean. The staff were helpful, and there was a great little BYOB seafood place within walking distance. There isn't a ton to do in Malibu, so you'll probably want to go over to Santa Monica or some other area while you stay. There are a few upscale restaurants nearby. This place was by far the most expensive place we've stayed, but for a few days, I think it was worth the money. Would be nice if they installed a hot tub on the property though, and didn't love the dirt lots as much as some of the other surfaces we've used. The site we had was #30, which was one of the larger back in spots right on the first level that backed up to the ocean. The showers were very nice, with an anteroom where you could put your towel and other things. However, the bathroom toilets were frequently dirty, though they seemed to get a lot of use. There was also a horse shoes area and a laundry which I didn't use. - Anthony D

This park is average at best. They get away with high prices and stay busy because of location. Spots are dirt and too close together. First, we checked in at the same time as a large class A. The sent us out the door with instructions that put us nose to nose going to our spots. The gentleman in the class A backed up to allow us to back in our spot. I go to hook up to shore power and one leg of the 50 amp has no voltage. After calling the office, I was assured maintenance would be right over. No one ever showed up, so I just used the 30 amp. Time for laundry, or should I say time to waste on laundry. Only four machines with one of them out of service for the entire park. And $3 a load, 2x what we pay in any other park. We are 2.5 weeks on the road and it's time to wash the RV. I called and asked if it was ok and if they had a preferred vendor. They said no problem, call this vendor. The detailed shows up as scheduled and starts. Then comes the call from high and mighty park manager telling me I didn't have permission and so on. For the most part your typical king of a small kingdom wanting to exercise his perceived power. I informed him that his office had in fact told me to call the vendor to get the requested service. Thru the conversation he continued to state I was in the wrong. He said it may have been ok if I was a long term guest, but not for someone only here for 5 days. Needless to say, we won't be back. It's sad, good location lets the management get away with sub par service and amenities while charging a premium. - Another5ver

We stayed two nights in space 50. The park is very clean and well maintained. Our site was dirt but it was raked and clean when we checked in. The slope on the site was sufficient to require me to use 6" of wood blocks on the front to get my rig level. It was deep enough to allow plenty of space for the toad in front. There is a "Dog Run", but it's too small for actually playing with your dog. You can take them off leash, but it's only a fenced yard with astro turf all over. They don't want you walking your dog on the nice grassy area in the central portion, so you have to walk them on the asphalt roadways. There is a nice park area a short walk away and the Aquarium of the Pacific is about 15 minutes walking distance. Will stay here again when we bring our grandson to visit the museums and aquarium. - Scott Baker

We stayed here while attending a conference at the convention center. It's about a 20 minute walk. It's a beautiful park and the road noise wasn't much of an issue. No complaints. - Brad & Angela

We stayed for 3 nights in site 23. Most of the other reviews here covered the important aspects re: dirt surface, back in, etc. Overall this was a nice little park, with friendly and helpful staff. The facilities were well kept and it's obvious they put a lot of effort into keeping them clean. We had a small issue with our water hook-up, but one of the maintenance workers noticed it was leaking and took initiative to fix it right away. We appreciated him being proactive and helping us out! If you're unfamiliar with this area, be prepared for a very "urban" setting. The resort is packed full of rigs and cars with no real view to speak of from your site. If you're planning to hang out at your motorhome/trailer to bbq etc. it's going to look more like a parking lot tailgate. If you're (like us) just using your site as a place to rest and shower, but plan to spend most of your time out and about in the city, it's a great location and will serve that purpose well! Note - Wifi was down due to construction as of June 20, 2018. - Kelly E

Easy Access to the entire area. Need Big Rig dexterity as the back in spots are not too easy access. The people are very friendly and the food was good. Don't miss the Sunday breakfast. No fenced dog park but we walked a large area around the Elks lodge. The Garden is very pretty and rocks are amazing. The weather was great. Would definitely stay again - godoit

Great place to stay, fun lodge, quiet location. Easy to get to, pretty scenery. No TV at sites (lodge working on their cable hookups), our HD antenna couldn't pull anything in and satellite blocked on our side (neighbor said he got a signal on other side). Excellent Verizon phone and data services. Wifi worked in lodge, but not at our site, they are working on that also. Sites will fit 40' long, but don't think much longer. - Duran

Sites are level, but if you are the last one in, it might be tight maneuvering. It's quiet and doesn't feel like a city but you are close to everything. There is overflow parking for $5 a night- no hook up for that. As mentioned, the entrance is sort of an alley- a very wide driveway behind the parking lot of Old Susana's café. The driveway is called Elks Trail and is easy to miss, but if you do, there is a large dirt parking lot right down the street. Can't beat this place for the price! - Soos
