After spending 3 weeks at Dockweiler RV Park, we were fortunate enough to spend our last week in Los Angeles at Malibu Beach RV Park. Shortly after we arrived and started to get everything setup, we saw that there were dolphins swimming out in the water! A great welcoming party! We knew right away that this was going to be a fabulous location to camp for the week.
The spaces were just as crammed in as they were at Dockweiler and are covered in the small gravel rock similar to what we had when we stayed at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground. We didn’t end up getting an “ocean view” spot, but we still had an amazing ocean view during the week when the campground emptied out.
There was a great dog run area/ trail down below the park with an amazing ocean view, which was convenient. There were lots of dogs staying there and our neighbors even had a few cats that they walked around on leashes!
Aryanna, Aarons daughter, flew out to spend the week with us for her spring break. She had never been to Los Angeles or even to California, so she was very excited to come out to the beach. We drove out to Leo Carrillo State Beach, which is dog-friendly at the North end, so Lulu got to rip and race around in the water having a grand old time! The water was cold in March, but great to put our feet in.
We also did a really fun hike only a couple miles down the road, Escondido Canyon Falls. The hike was dog-friendly and takes you across a couple of streams, to an awesome waterfall at the end. It was a very beautiful hike
The one downside to staying out in Malibu is how far you are from everything. If we didn’t have people to see and obligations to go into the city, we wouldn’t have minded being fairly isolated out there. That being said, for the view and the lack of airplane noise, we would gladly return to Malibu Beach RV Park in the future!
