Best location! Right next to LAX! Beachfront! 50 amp full hookup. Multimillion dollar view and access to beach. Level site. If you call you will see they actually have 5 45ft. sites, although they don't seem longer than the other ones in person. Our 43ft. coach barely barely fits in a 45ft. site but I could see how we could have squeezed in another 2 feet maybe:-) The back row is actually the best during winter because you have no one behind you except for extra parking spaces:-) They pile a high sand berm during winter that can only be looked over by the tiered back row too:-) Traffic is terrible, it took us 4.5 hours to get out of Los Angeles towards Vegas. - univmd

Great place to stay if in the L.A. area. We were visiting our son and his family in Santa Monica, which was only a 20 minute drive away. This RV park is literally right on the beach at the Pacific Ocean. Because of its great location it is extremely popular so reservations are a must. You can only make reservations 90 days or less before arrival, so I recommend if possible calling in exactly 90 days ahead. The sites are level, and if possible, I suggest asking for the front row which is right on the beach itself. Sites are VERY close together. My neighbor, when backing in, asked politely if I could roll in my awning a bit since he did not think he could open his slide out without hitting my awning. Very child friendly place, and pet friendly as well with two dog areas (small but adequate for dogs to do their business). Very helpful and friendly staff at the office. If you expect visitors, you need to get a guest parking pass, which they only provide in very limited numbers so you need to go to the office first thing the morning of the visit and buy a pass ($7). The park tended to be a bit noisy with virtually every site filled and many playing music all day long. This park is right next to the airport, so you do hear planes taking off all day and night, but with the a/c running in the RV, this was not a problem. But this RV park is a real find and I would absolutely come back here if visiting L.A. in the future. - David642

The view of the Pacific ocean is awesome. Beautiful sunsets on the water. The park itself is well maintained, with no frills. Parking our tow was a challenge on Fri and Sat but available along the back row against the wall. There are two fenced dog parks that is all sand. Neighbors are close and folks honored quiet times. Rules such as no bicycle riding in the park is not enforced. Also many walkers and bicycle folks from the outside wander in during the day. At night security is there to ensure nothing gets out of control. - Peter G

Campground is closed, new houses are being built in its place, very sad. - rroch

The park is tight but then it has murals at the end of each road. Clean but the bathrooms could use some updating. Expensive but then CA is. But this place is great for patients of Cedar Sinai, UCLA medical center and St. Joe's. Owners are friendly and accommadating. Even with the Van Nuys Airport surrounding the park I had no trouble resting or sleeping at night. I certainly rested better in my rig then at the hospital. They also having traveling nurses there. Great place to recoup. - Graybird

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

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

Stayed here many times including the night before the Woolsey Canyon fire blew to Malibu. Evacuated early and know they sustained significant fire damage. Talked to park after the fire and was told that they plan on reopening in June 2019 after significant repairs and improvements. - pbastedo

Fantastic spot, spectacular views. Nicest washrooms we’ve experienced, like being in your own home. We were evacuated due to the Woosley fire, we really hope this beautiful spot was spared. Excellent place to stay near LA, bit of a drive into town but gorgeous views the whole way. - Kelly Mohan

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

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

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
