Pro's: Campsites are right on the sand. Campsites and bathrooms are kept clean. The bike path is nice, but some parts are really sandy. Beach is nice for buggy boarding, size of waves are OK. Security is pretty tight and you need a code to get in the gate. There were some loud party folks, but it quieted down by 10. Close by Marina Del Rey and Manhattan Beach for dining or shopping. Beautiful sunsets. Con's: Lots of trash on the beach, the county needs to hire more workers to cleanup. Lots of planes, you are near LAX, to be expected. Near industrial looking facilities with smoke stacks (an eye sore). Sites are pretty tight, could be a little wider. Signal strength for Verizon is very poor, 2 out of 5 bars. We stayed 2 weeknights in June, so it wasn't that crowded. We give this place a 3.8 stars out of 5. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent one night here while passing through Los Angeles. You can't be the beach or the close proximity to it and the bike path. The jets taking off was a bit annoying. You wouldn't really want to start a phone conversation as they were that often. The staff were wonderful to work with. There are great restaurants a short drive away. We will be back. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fun place to camp being right on the bike path and beach. Security restrooms were nice and clean. No complaints but you have to be OK with LAX jet noise from above. We had a nice fire ring on beach near our space. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We've stayed here ten or so times, but never so close to Christmas. The place was about a third full. They even let us stay several hours past checkout for no charge since nobody had reserved our site. They also let us get a second parking pass for $5 per day, even though it was the weekend. The staff was super friendly as usual and the place continues to be well-maintained. My young kids LOVE the winter berm. Other families brought snow sleds to ride the hill. And the youth center had a free Christmas carnival with snow, bouncers, and crafts. If you park at the north end of the park, you still get a good view of the ocean. As usual, it'll be closed in January for upgrades and maintenance. We'll be back again and again. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is right on the beach, and right under the flight path of planes taking off from LAX. Amazingly, after the first day, you don't really notice the planes all that much. Our rate was for the back row. It's $10 more a night for the front row right next to the sand. You park facing the ocean though and we had a great view. I see no reason to pay the higher price. Weekends are more crowded with lots of kids running around on bikes and skateboards so you have to watch out for them when you are coming and going. The restrooms were key coded and the showers had no doors or curtains so you had to be OK with being walked in on or time your shower to off peak. I had no problems. We were in LA to sight see and Dockweiler is a great starting spot with easy access to all of the other freeways. Nothing we wanted to visit was more than 40 minutes away in LA traffic. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is our third or fourth stay here. They're closed each January for upgrades. The asphalt has been resealed. The back row and the north half of the middle row have new power pedestals. This site and beach are the most well-maintained of any we've seen in SoCal. Far better than state beaches. The winter berm is up, but on our last day, they were flattening it for the annual Grunion Run. We'll definitely be back. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Booked a last minute spot for our second visit. Site #1 opened up and that was the only beach front site. Better than middle or back rows because we wanted the view, but far too much foot traffic outside our window for our liking. Well-run and well-maintained area. Went to Kevaccino’s for lunch and smoothies and enjoyed it. We’ll be back next month in a different front-row site. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Reserved and stayed Sunday night. It could be that restrooms and showers are not cleaned on Sundays, but they were sorely in need of cleaning as of 11 AM Monday. Jet noises slowed sometime after 1:30 AM when I last looked at the clock. They started back up around 5 AM. When we staked out a fire pit, I had to clean out several fireworks casings. Some time after 10 PM when the County workers left, the illegal fireworks started. The pops and whistles were louder than the jets flying overhead. This may have been a one-time occurrence, but a group of partiers whooped it up until after 1 AM. The park prohibits the use of mopeds and bicycles in the campground, but at any given time, there were 2 to 3 times as many cyclists in the park than on the bikeway. We paid $60 per night plus a $10 reservation fee for site 36 because there were not camping sites across the greenway from us. The beach was littered with wrappers and bits of styrofoam, a broken toy shovel, and a green glass bottle, just enough to make it noticeable walking to and along the water. That said, for a metropolitan beach, I was surprised to see so few people on the beach. Just a few hundred feet to the north on the day use side, strangers were sitting within a foot of each other, similar to other urban beaches in the summer. If I had to stay here again, I'll definitely remember to bring ear plugs or stay after my hearings gone. By the way, all that jet noise can't be good for all of the kids there.

We stayed here two nights. This park is unique as it sits right on the beachfront. The sites are a little close together but the trade off is having the beach access just steps away. There are also fire rings on the beach that you can use until 10:00 pm. The campground was clean and check in was very easy. We will stay here again. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here while visiting relatives in Torrance. As stated by others, it is a parking lot with hookups right next to the sand. Airport noise is very close and loud, but doesn't seem to bother after midnight. The grounds are very well maintained and the check in was pleasant. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here because we wanted to be on the sand. The winter sand berm is up, but we were at the north end so we could still see water to the north of the berm. Our three year old loved climbing the berm. First jets flew over at about 4am, then all day. The girl loves the jets, so that was a plus. It’s a beautiful beach and was relatively quiet. Got an occasional whiff of the sewage treatment plant across the street, like someone left their sewer hookup open. We’ll definitely return, as this is the only beachfront site around with *full* hookups. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice area but a little pricey. They have three rows to choose from the front row being right up next to the beach and bike trail. Dogs are allowed but they cannot go on the beach, however I believe they are allowed to go in the sand up to the fence but not beyond to the actual beach.Unfortunately there is a huge sand dune in front so you do not have a view of the ocean just the sand. they have little grills to cook on in front of the RV and they have fire pits right beyond the bike path which is very nice. It is very quiet except for the airplanes from LAX. Not a bad spot to stay for a day or two. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were pleasantly surprised by this campground. Yes, it is a parking lot. Yes, the planes go over and yes it is close to the sewage treatment plant. However, the views can't be beat. Check-in was smooth, the grounds were clean and the beach is literally steps from your door. The bike path is great, and Manhattan Beach is only a few easy miles down the coast. Did not use the restrooms. No dogs on the beach and the dog runs were tiny. Between the 2nd and 3rd rows there is a grassy patch which was nice. We will stay here again.

The primary selling point of Dockweiler is that it is literally on the beach. As others have written, this is not a "resort", it is a "park"; the spots are narrow, and there are no man-made amenities other than bathrooms/showers and the smallest dog run I have ever seen. Located just a half-mile from the LAX flight-path, there is constant jet noise but you do get used to it. However, sand and surf are just footsteps away and the bike path, which runs from Redondo Beach to Marina Del Rey, is immediately adjacent to the park along the beach and affords some terrific cycling. Manhattan Beach is just three miles to the south and has good nightlife, shopping, restaurants, etc. All in all, a great place to spend a vacation! We go there whenever we have the opportunity.

Well: Dockweiler kind of, is what it is. The campgrounds are clean and it is on the sand and the reasonable rates are the good points. However you are at the end of the LAX runway and the jet noise can be deafening. Also when the wind is just right, you get a lovely whiff of the Hyperion Sewage treatment plant a short distance away. I used to play softball tournaments on the sand when this was Imperial Beach which was fun, but for camping it is just too noisy. We also had some beer/food stolen overnight from our campsite. They have made improvements here but just not my idea of camping/chilling by the beach. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
