16 RV Parks near Van Nuys, California
Oct 2018 - $65.00
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

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

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

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

Beautiful location. Sites large and level. Perhaps because the temperature was 177 degrees an small of army of tiny ants were seeking moisture and made their way up our water hose in into the water & sewer compartment and into both our kitchen and bathroom areas. There was no Verizon service in the park nor was there any cable or over-the-air television. Best access is CA-118 to Tapo Canyon Road. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful. - dandd

Stayed here to visit our dealer in Moorpark for some minor warranty work. Great little park. Shared the campground with just a few other RVs, though the reservation board looks to be pretty full on weekends. Quiet, peaceful, croaking frogs, song birds, in short beautiful. Big spots with almost level concrete pads. Great power, high water pressure (use your regulator) and tables and a fire pit at every site. Hosts are friendly and actively cleaning up the park every day. Only downside, the AT&T signal is sketchy...here one minute, gone the next. On the upside, just a few minutes from shopping, dining, etc. but feels miles away. - DanJenNevada

Access to the park was easy off of I-118 strait up Tapo Canyon Road. Perimeter roads are paved and plenty wide. Check in was self registration. Pick a site (make sure it has not been reserved) and fill in the blanks. Services were to the left center and convenient except the sewer connection was very high. We had a metal table and a fire ring that were well placed. Our camp hosts were very nice. "Mrs. Ranger" was great. Site spacing was good. This is a very quiet location. Hard to believe that it is so close to the hustle & bustle of LA. There are no services withing walking distance. All services are available in Simi Valley about ten minutes away. There is no Wifi and very limited cell service. No Cable or OTA TV. Satellite would not be a problem in most sites. This is a great location for visiting the greater LA area. We feel we received good value for our dollar and would return. - Rollin Ollens

This was an awful experience. After driving in horrid traffic I finally arrived here only to be told they were sold out. I had paid a deposit online when I made my reservation, and they had that. Apparently when you call them you get the owner who lives in another state. He has no idea how much room they have available. Why the park itself doesn't take calls is ridiculous. The couple who actually run the place were great, and got me a place down the road. It's not their fault they are stuck with a ridiculous system. - Lynn C

Great for overnight off the I 5...park spots showing their age. Not busy.... Nice pool...wifi spotty. Would come back...the only place around! - Tonyl

Nice park near Magic Mountain amusement park. Relatively level sites with full hookups, which all seemed to work fine. Cable connection available. Some sites are shaded and some have more direct sun. Plenty of activities to do at the park for kids. Friendly staff. - Urbanthesis

The park is very clean and has many amenities. The club house has games that are in very good shape, including air hockey, foosball, a ping pong table, etc. The store is very well stocked with camping supplies that are reasonably priced. We would return to this park. - John A Guderian

The staff was very friendly and helpful. One of them even drove me around in the golf cart to check the available sites and pick the best one for my rig. The pool was great, clean and perfect temperature. They even have a night security guy at the entrance, nice to have even though this seems like a very safe area. The store was very well stocked with a good variety of items. They have a shelf full of dvd's for free loan. They have outside movies projected on Friday and Saturday night. The site was very large and easy to get into. The wifi was good all day and into the night. For some reason the wifi never worked in the waking hours, but always started up shortly after sun up. I use a EMS (electrical management system) and monitor my voltage very closely. The 50 amp service needs to be upgraded. During peak hours of the day one leg consistently dropped to 104 volts, the other leg had no such drops. Mid week when the park was less full the voltage didn't drop as much. There is a train track very close to the park. It seems some engineers blast the horns to upset the campers. Many trains didn't blast the horns. There is no grade crossing that I could find that would require blasting the horn. We slept fine leaving the fan on our roof air to drown out the train horns. The park clearly has no control over the train engineers so this shouldn't be held against the park. There is also almost no Sprint cell signal, again not the fault of the park owners. The ground is dry and dusty, high desert. Not the fault of the park owner. - Bob86ZZ4

This large campground is located on Soledad Canyon Road between Palmdale and Santa Clarita. There are mostly back in sites with some pull through sites as well as tent areas. Typical of a KOA there are lots of facilities to keep the kids happy with playgrounds and a pool. Otherwise the campground is just a lot of dirt and dust. The driveways are pot holed and rough. A railroad track runs through the back of the property with frequent horn blowing Metro Link trains. There are lots of mature trees on the property that offer at least the possibility of getting some shade. We only spent one night here in a back in site on dirt with 50 amp electric, water and sewer. There is free WiFi which we were able to use in the evening when we arrived but disappeared the next morning. The bathrooms were OK, reasonably clean. On the plus side, the manager stopped by our site in the morning and asked if everything was OK with our site. This rarely happens in RV parks. We paid $50 per night. - Coopsecondact

Don't be fooled, this is a fine dirt park, sand-like. Clouds of dust blowing getting into every crack and crevice. Now if you love the burned out canyon scenery, mostly treeless campground, then this is for you. I am not saying anything negative about the service levels...just dusty, dirty and windy. We could not get into our site, #32 which looked fairly new, because of a sand drift about 50' in front of the back-in area. I was not going to even try it and get stuck. So we did not stay and requested our weeks rents back. We are full timers and are appreciative of honest reviews, as this is. We travel in a 43' Motorhome with a towed. - Lost in America Tour
