Los Angeles Full Time RV Park...

Hello -

Does anyone know of full time parks in Los Angeles? What I mean by full time is a park that I could basically live out of full time and one that will accept a 1975 Argosy Moho.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Allen

Malibu RV park

Has some long term people there. They don't have a problem with our 85 MoHo or Uwe's 63 trailer. But rates might be a little steep. There is also a park in San Dimas .. East Shore RV park which seems to have some longterm residents.

Malibu...

How was the park at Malibu? Looked at the website and it's definitely pricey but for an ocean view that's pretty cheap in LA

Cheers,
Allen

I am currently staying 2 days at the Pomona Fairplex KOA. They offer extended stay sites...but they say the rv cannot be more than 10 years old. They might make an exception on seeing your rig though.

There are a lot of extended stay people here. It is close quarters, but clean and secure. Right now it is pretty full because an rv show is coming to the fairgrounds.

Hi str8strm -

Are the beachfront spots worth the extra money?

Cheers,
Allen

There are lots of places in adjacent (inland) counties if you don't mind the commute.

Hi westernviews -

That one looks pretty nice. Do you know what the monthly rates are?

Cheers,
Allen

I've visited the Malibu park. Great view, but expensive.

Golden Shore looks like a nice alternative.

Looks, like you've been quite a ways in your rig.

was it hard getting a spot in Malibu? Did you have to reserve it? how long did you stay? and did you stay anywhere else in LA?

cheers,
allen

Malibu vs Golden Shore

We have stayed at Malibu, with str8strm and a dozen others duirng a notreallyarallyrally. Nice location up on the hill overlooking the Pacific with some white water views. Beach access requires walking down the hill and about 100 yards to a safe crosswalk. Easy walk, 10 minutes or so. Ocean view value is a tough call, for us we would pay the premium if it was in the budget. If you need to come and go a lot or if you have business in much of the LA area, Malibu is a challenging location.

Golden Shore is tucked in right next to Long Beach Harbor at the end of the Long Beach Freeway (710). I believe it is off the main channel accross the street from the main harbor. Walking distance to many resturants and entertainment areas, such as the Aquarium of the Pacific. Just down channel from the Queen Marry. Pine Street, the main drag for ent and eating is around the corner. This would be a great location if you are trying to get around the LA/Orange County area, centrally located (considering it is on the coast) within an hour of just about everywhere except maybe the SF valley, and assuming it is no at the heavy rush hours.

Malibu would be peaceful and a bit more removed from the world, Golden Shore would be a busier and more conducive to getting around town.

Hope this helps, remember it is just an opinion.

John

thanks john -

good to hear something from the locals

you mentioned there is quite a bit of stuff right near the Long Beach location. is there much to do near the Malibu location? how is the Long Beach area, safe, nice? also, is there a beach to actually swim in at Long Beach?

since your from the Hunington area is there anything south of the city in Orange county or near you that has long term camping?

thank you soooo much for your opinion.

cheers,
allen

Allen,

Malibu is kinda off by itself and while the town of Malibu is nerby there is not much else but beach.

You can drive to Santa Monica about 25 min. away. Once there you are near many ent. and dining places.

Long Beach is oddly shaped in that in some places six blocks from the beach you are in depressed or industrial areas. The area around the R.V. Park is very nice and includes much dining and entertainment.

Are you going to be doing something specific or just vacationing?

Surrounding L.A. are Mountain, Desert, Beach and suburban area R.V. parks. So in reality you couls stay in various types of areas and give yourself the full treatment.

Malibu understands "Vintage". We have stayed there with our 1969 Airstream before it was polished and it didn't even come up. I think some of the managers there are into "Vintage" Airstreams........it is a great park and has quite a few long term people. It is challenging in that it is on Pacific Coast Highway with people whizzing by (supposedly no more than 50 mph) and you have to cross 4 lanes of traffic to go to the beach. Also some of the spots are harder to get into than others......but you can pick up the phone and talk to them as they do have rules--only certain dogs, no wood fires--etc. We liked it there and the view is spectacular if you like an ocean view. pj
