Los Angles Camping

I'm signed up for a two week architectural history intensive at USC and had the bright idea that I'd stay in our Airstream while down there. I've been looking for campgrounds, the most promising won't take a trailer older than 10 years, and the others I've checked out look more than a little dodgy from the Google maps images. I'm wondering if anyone here might have a suggestion. I'm hoping not to have to drive more than half an hour to the campus, but somehow, saying that, I think it's unlikely. Thanks!

Peter

I wouldn't camp anywhere near USC. It borders south central L A lots of gang activity. I'd look for on campus temporary housing if it were me.
If you insist on bringing your trailer, try the campground just south of LAX in El Segundo at the end of the 105 freeway

Thanks Subfan1, that helps. It probably makes more sense to get some other kind of housing.

Malibu RV park is very nice but expensive. It is after all in MalibuÖ

Much lower on the budget scale is an RV park near Van Nuys airport.

That's pretty funny, I called Malibu and I think I'll stay there.

Good luck on staying in Malibu. Are you ready for a two hour commute to USC? Several years ago we spent 6 weeks at the KOA at the LA County/Pomona Fairplex while I did a job in LA. Safe, nice area, short walk to the LA MetroRail which takes you right downtown, one transfer to USC (or at least it used to). If you haven't tried to drive in LA during commuting hours (5AM to 10 PM), you have no idea what you're in for.

Might give the LAX Dockweiler Beach location a closer look. I've never stayed there, but it would seem to be one of the more convenient locations. Still plan for a long commute up to USC, but the 105 is right there and should be reliable for you. I stay close by there part time and prefer the south beaches (Manhattan Beach, Hermosa, Redondo) over any place in SoCal.

Thanks. Dockweiler looked handy, but kind of iffy. The KOA in Pomona sounds like another good option. I figure the commute won't be easy, commuting in the SF bay area has become nightmarish, I have a benchmark. I have some time to figure it out. I really appreciate the input!

Sounds good. If you need any extra help with it, I'll be happy to ask around and do some recon. I'm a pilot and fly out of LAX, have lived in El Segundo, just drove through there today and do so every week. It's definitely a "safe" area by SoCal standards.

Since yor willing to go as far as Pomona, Try East Shore RV in San Dimas.

There's also Golden Shore RV park in Long Beach. From there, it's not too bad of a drive to USC, I used to make the commute into Downtown LA for years and USC is slightly closer. You can also take public transportation to USC.

Golden Shore and East Shore look like good bets, you guys are a huge help! So, Golden Shore is only 21 miles from USC, mornings are the issue, getting there at 9, I expect there'll be traffic no matter where, will the 110 FWY be nuts going downtown?

If anyone has any questions about places to stay in the wine country or the north coast, hit me up, I'd love to return the favor!

Me again. We've also stayed at Golden Shore and it is a terrific campground - pricy - cramped and not as convenient to the MetroRail as Pomona. BUT there is MetroRail from LB to USC, you just have to get from Golden Shore to one of the stops in the LB loop.
