Dockweiler RV Park

Jun 28, 2010 by Lisa Newton

If you own or rent an RV to travel, they’re basically a homes on wheels which we commonly call Recreational Vehicles.

For the uninformed, they range in size and shape, can host up to who knows how many people, and they tend to have just about every common household gadget imaginable. Indeed, RVs have become a way of life for many people.

To plan a trip with an RV takes homework, but where can you truly enjoy the beach when in an RV?

At Dockweiler RV Park , to be sure!

A few days ago, Travelin’ Local covered the storied history and current services at Dockweiler Beach, but we omitted the RV Park that’s there. We felt it deserved a single story by itself.

As LA County’s only recreational vehicle campground on the beach, Dockweiler RV Park is located at 12001 Vista del Mar, in Playa del Rey, CA.

For RV aficionados they host complete hook-ups, a handy pump-out station, hot showers, and a laundromat.

Each campsite has its own picnic table and barbecue, so you can wake up in the morning, grab your coffee, and get your grill fired up for your meal of choice. Better yet, why not put on your bathing suit or get your surfboard and head 25 feet toward the Pacific ocean.
