Dockweiler Beach RV Campground

The Dockweiler RV Park is for RVs and trailers only. Tents are not allowed. Sections of the campground are designated for trailers or for RVs. During holiday weekends fees increase slightly for a span of 3 days prior to the holiday and 3 days after the holiday. During the 7-day long holiday periods, a minimum 3-day reservation is required. Rules about changing reservations become stricter during holiday periods.

Dockweiler State Beach's RV Park is one of the rare oceanside campgrounds in Los Angeles County. Although the sites are close together in parking lot fashion, their proximity to the ocean and the wide expanses of Dockweiler State Beach make them highly sought after sites. Many campers reserve their sites as soon as they become available. The ocean-front sites cost slightly more than the sites in rows 2 and 3.
