Dockweiler State Beach
The closest beach to LAX stretches for four miles from El Segundo north to Playa Del Rey. In addition to the normal amenities, Dockweiler State Beach accommodates overnight campers with fire pits and RV campsites with reservations. Other special features of this beach include bike rentals, a bike path, fishing and scuba diving. But perhaps the best and most surprising feature is the quiet and solitude that can be found here despite its proximity to such a large airport. Call the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors for details.
I was disappointed to arrive at the gate at Dockweiler State Beach and to be told that my Distinguished Veteran Pass was not accepted there. I was told it was run by Los Angeles County ( although you are a state beach ? ) and that you do not honor the Distinguished Veteran Pass for use of the facilities there. I would appreciate some kind of explanation as to why?
Are you not a unit of the California State Park System? Are you not run by the California Department of Parks and Recreation? Whatever the reasons are they are a slap in the face to disabled veterans that arrive at your gate. Signed, Disappointed Disabled Veteran
We visited for the first time since before the renovations at the campground. That is probably about three (3) years.
The Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation has taken full control of operations rather than to contract out for these services as was done in the past, which makes for a Far Better Campground than Before !!!
The upgrades included in the renovation we noticed are for Every Space to have Full Hook-ups. The back row was only Power and Water Before upgrades, now with Dump station at every space. There seems to be more work being done at the campground presently.
Yes People, there are Airplanes overhead coming and going at LAX all hours of Day and Night. If you are a "Light Sleeper" than You Surely need to Camp Somewhere Else !!!
I personally have No Trouble Sleeping when I am tired and the planes are a minor distraction for me. The prices are good in our opinion being at Winter rate of $28 for a Front row space (right up to sand) $26 for a Middle row space and $24 for a Back Row space. Overall the location is Great for being So Close to Everything you might need.
Supplies can be purchased at any one of many locations nearby and not so nearby if you need food, drinks, parts or Anything Else.
Best Camping in Los Angeles.
Remember This Is Los Angeles People !!!
