I recently stayed for a week. The bad: under LAX flight path. Very loud all day and some of the night. Sites very close together. Your awning will probably touch your neighbor's slide. No cable or WiFi. Smells like a sewer a lot of the time. Probably from the treatment plant across the street. The good: on the beach and bike path. Way overpriced for what you get but they are the only RV park near there. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It's right on the beach, which is good. But it is in the flight path of LAX (24/7 planes overhead). It is right across the street from a sewage treatment plant, so when the wind comes off the land, it smells terrible. I would not recommend it, especially for the off-season rate. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I've posted many reviews on Dockweiler. Park's pretty much the same as always. Decent neighbors and no disruptions. Some non-park negatives are that the beach had many more night parties than usual on the weekend (more fire rings, I think), and the ocean water was pretty dirty on our weekend stay.

Add a star if you like the beach or if you like watching jet airliners screaming overhead every 60 seconds 24/7. This place was terrible. It was a large tarmac parking lot with 3 rows of campers tightly packed in. We walked out the door right into the sewer port. Half the spaces are back-in, the other half are pull-in. There are no pull throughs. There was no WiFi. The dog runs were little more than sand box sized enclosures that nobody was cleaning out and the dog refused to use. The TV signal is constantly interrupted by airliners taking off and landing. The hookups worked like they should. We would NOT stay here again. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Stay somewhere else.

I have camped here time and really enjoy it!! It's a small park ,which is nice, especially if you have kids. You don't feel paranoid about the kids taking off on their bikes or skateboards. The spots are a little tight, which is tough if you have a really big trailer of 5th wheel and the sewer hookups are towards the front (weird)... If your sewer connections are at or near the back of your rig, you'll need a long sewer hose or an extension. You're really close to your neighboring site, so I suggest getting to know each other. It's separated from the main part of the beach which I hear can get a little rowdy (mainly on weekends). Nothing dangerous, just loud, but you are completely removed and separated from that in the RV park!! In the winter months there is a berm which blocks the ocean view from your site, but is really cool to see (again, especially if you have kids). The beach side spots are more readily accessible during the off season months yet the temperature is still very nice. It will get cold at night which makes the fire pits in the sand purposeful and not just great ambiance. Bottom line... It's the beach, it's clean... what's not to like!!! We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Book early...as far in advance as possible (90 days is the earliest allowed) in order to get a site along the sand. Every other side is good (you're only steps from the beach), but the beach side spots are what make the trip really special!!

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.
