You might try "Malibu Beach RV Park" its just north on the coastal highway. Nice view it sets on a bluff over looking the ocean. It is expensive and the site are close together but CG is clean. Not a lot choices in the area, that's why we chose it.

We stayed at Malibu Beach in April and it was very nice but the sites are tight - less than a foot between your slide out and your neighbors coach. Right across from ocean and you hear the waves all night which is very relaxing.

We stayed in Van Nuys in July at the Birmingham RV Park. Definitely a few steps below Malibu in a tired part of town. People were very nice and site was much bigger. Most RV's are permanent residents there.

There is Leo Carillo State Park and Thornhill Broome just north of the LA county line. Both are on Pacific Coast Highway. During the week you can probably get a space by just driving in. These parks don't allow MH's of more than 31ft. I have a 34 and my son has a 36ft and have no problem getting in. Just tell them it's 31ft, that is unless your40ft. and are afraid to fake it. Thery never come out and measure. Thornhill Broome is right on the beach and can accomadate longer MH's.

Los Angeles is not a real RV friendly metropolis, with few RV parks, an very few tourist RV parks. You mention Long Beach, Golden Shores RV, across from the Queen Mary is a nice park. You really are not on the ocean, and you can hardly see the harbor, so don't plan on scenery, but the location is good and the park is nice. Heading up Freewayhighway 5 out by Magic Mountain is Travel Village. A lovely, grassy park. Near my home is Walnut RV Park in Northridge. It is clean, on a busy street across from a major shopping center, backs to an active train track, the reviews are not great on RVparkreviews, but it is clean and as close to central LA as you are going to get. About a 40 minute drive to UCLA, in traffic make that 2 hours. Many nice parks in the Anaheim area by Disney or Knotts Berry Farm, but you will be a good hour from LA and Universal City. NewPort Dunes is a resort, yes expensive but on the water in a resort community. But, you are a good 90 minutes from LA proper, without traffic. One more thought, Fairplex Pomona KOA is a very well kept, fully paved and grassed campground across from the fairgrounds. It is off Freeway/highway 210, and about 45 minutes from downtown LA on a less crowded freeway, except during rush hour when it crawls.
But our weather is great...what can I say. Happy Trails.

There is also Dockweiler RV Park, 8255 Vista Del Mar
CA 90293. It is on the beach just west of Los Angeles International airport. The big down side is the plane noise 24/7. Just take the 105 fwy west and you end up at their entrance.

Golden Shores is the only place we've stayed where we had people jump the fence and steal things from our campsite. So I wouldn't recommend them unless you are very careful.
Travel Village is the nicest place around LA. We go there sometimes just to get away for the weekend. It’s only a hour away from our house.
