Dockweiler Beach State Park, Los Angeles
Right alongside LAX: Los Angeles International Airport is a popular beach known as "Dockweiler State Beach". Part of this beach is directly under the flight path of the airport and therefore has become a popular spot to watch planes land and take off. It is also a popular location for training people to hang-glide.It is also one of the very few beaches in Los Angeles were beach bonfires are permitted. Adjacent to El Segundo and connected to Playa del Rey, this can become a very popular beach for picnics, summer outings, etc. In between the beach and the airport is the ghost town of Palisades del Rey.
In L.A. County there aren't very many places an RV can stay right on the beach, but Dockweiler RV Park has been renovated and it's open! Enter via Imperial Highway off the 405 freeway and enjoy surf, sand and sun. It's open nearly year round (usually closed during Feb. for maintenance and upkeep) it has hook-ups and a handy pump-out station. There's volleyball, surfing, ocean swimming, surf fishing and just steps from the South Bay Bicycle Trail. There are even FIRE RINGS for your evening campfire!
