Looking for nice RV Park/CG in the LA/Burbank/Hollywood area

Hubby and I would like to travel to California to see our son who lives in LA. He's actually downtown Hollywood but we don't want to drive down Sunset Blvd with our 40' MH, let alone try to find a place to park. Anyone know of a nice RV Park nearby. We'd like to be within a half hour drive. Coming from South Dakota; first time driving out there. Usually just fly out. Thanks for your input!

we stayed here RV Park in Huntington Beach - Huntington by the Sea all blacktop lot, but full hook-ups. a little bit of a drive to Hollywood, but easy access to freeways and close to the beach. plenty of pull-thrus.

Try Castaic Lake RV Park, Castaic, CA which is about 35 miles to Hollywood. It is north of LA with most of the driving on I5. Just better avoid rush hour, which is LA can be all of the time. It has become a little run down lately.

Another option might be Walnut RV Park in Northridge, CA about 25 miles with most driving on Hwy 101. Check out RV Park Reviews :: Home for reviews, details and other options.

We stayed at the Malibu RV Resort right on the Pacific Coast Highway. Very nice and right on the water where you can let the surf lull you to sleep!

About a 35 minute ride to Hollywood.

Do you need reservations for these? If so how far in advance?

There is nothing that is really "nice". We have stayed at Walnut RV in Northridge, it's clean and decent, we have also driven through Birmingham RV in Van Nuys, it's also ok. Castaic, Malibu & Huntington Beach are all too far away. Remember, this is LA with all the bad traffic, stay as close as you can.

Thanks everyone for the tips. Gives me a starting point. We are dreading the traffic but I guess we need to get used to it.

We drive I15 from MT through LA every spring break. We time it for Saturday am before noon and have never had a traffic problem. NEVER drive 15 from Las Vegas to to LA on Sunday afternoon/evening. Also, you may want to avoid Narrow construction lanes in Salt Lake City if possible. Have a great trip. If time allows check out the Carlsbad State Beach campground south of LA. That's where we go every year. Reservations required in summer and on weekends.

Thanks, sounds like great advice!

There is a Rv park next door to Burbank studio , it's pretty tight but clean and the owner is a super nice helpful guy ( sorted my wheel bearings ) . If you ring them explaining size of mh and arrival time they will do everything to help

We have booked Malibu RV park for the week after Easter next April
We generally use RV reviews, trip advisor, this site and trailer life magazine.
Based on some of the terrible reviews on this park I must be nuts. I was in stitches reading them. It's hard to just say someone had a bad experience and gave it a bad review - multiple people - had the same complaints. However it was all about the staff and how rude and rotten and sour they were -,I figure by then the staff will have turned over or been fired.
The truth will out eventually I guess

SteveSkinner, you must be a glutton for punishment, Malibu RV park has had terrible reviews for years. They must be hiring the same kind of people over & over. They used to advertise in the Workamper News for people to work there and got terrible reviews from the workampers.

This one is pretty nice but is out north. It's one exit north of Magic Mountain.
