The park is an asphalt parking lot with connections ,but you are right on the beach and facing the Pacific Ocean. Only place on the beach you can have a fire at night. Very congested but we love being on the beach. Grandkids do also. Lifeguards always on duty. Staff very nice and accommodating. Need to reserve early for the summer. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

I like that you can reserve your exact site online - we reserved site #1, so we didn't have a neighbor on one side. (We ended up with no neighbor on the other side too, which was good, because the sites are pretty darn tight.) Sites are also short - we were able to fit our 32' motorhome in, and were able to park our tow sideways behind it, but if our RV was any bigger, we'd have had to park elsewhere. Right on the beach - sunset was great, and so was the cool breeze - had a nice walk on the beach. Didn't have our bikes, but if we had, we'd have enjoyed riding the bike path just outside the fence. Within close driving distance of great restaurants and shopping. However, sites are right below one of the busiest international flight paths of LAX - the noise was really loud, and kept me up much of the night. Solely because of that, I probably wouldn't stay again. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice beach communities both directions down the main road, for shopping and restaurants.

We still love Dockweiler, but this time it wasn't as clean as usual. There was evidence of *multiple* sewer overflows (scattered TP bits). The park is pretty empty at the end of December, and we don't mind the winter berm. I just noticed a sign for a $3 charge per dog. We'd already paid, so they let it slide. We'll be back, as usual.

Asphalt parking lot. Over priced. Not enough parking for your pull vehicle. Had to block other sites. Changed combo on gate after first nite, was unable to get into park at 11 PM. Need I say more?? Got my last buck!! 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.

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.

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 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.
