Dockweiler Beach in El Segundo would be perfect for your first trip out; it's close and right on the beach. 105 fwy east till it ends, then straight to the end of Imperial Hwy. Also, there are also a couple of apps, one is called RVPark Finder, the other RV Parks. They've proved very helpful to us. Good luck and happy RVing.

Congratulations on your first RV!

My first trip was a weekend trip to a campground about 15 miles away and close to shopping and hardware. I had a toad and did a few runs for shopping and one back home. I was glad to be close because my checklist of "stuff" needed was both more and less than I thought (you'll see what I mean after your first trip). After that mini-trip, I felt ready to cut the tether.

East Shore RV PARK AT Puddingstone lake in San dimas is pretty close to LA. I'm in Torrance and go there for quick get aways. Takes less than an hour. Stay in loop a or b if you can. Nice spots with fire pits, small pool but never crowded. Skunks and raccoons come out at night and are kinda cool.
Also there is a nice rv park in long beach right off ocean and at the end of the 710 fwy. Haven't stayed there, but drive by it every Monday and it looks nice.
Enjoy your new rv.
ps when you get comfortable and go further you have to go to pismo coast village. Very nice park in pismo beach, right on the. Ocean and walking distance to town. Love that place

Dockweiler sounds good, any hookups?

Yes, full hookups and all the sites are paved! It does seem tight but there's room for slide outs. Remember, this is your first run, so you want to make sure you are comfortable. Learn everything you can about your rig close to home! Happy RVing!

First trip

...may I suggest Canyon RV Park in Orange? Nestled along the Santa Ana river and the Anaheim Hills foothills, where the 91 and 241 fwys meet, 45 minutes from downtown LA, and yet a world away!!! $60/night, it's a great getaway spot! Try it, it's our new favorite spot close to home.

I would spend a weekend in the rv parked in the driveway. This way of you need anything you can run inside and get it or if something doesn't work your at home with all your tools to fix it. Then I would try a weekend trip somewhere close of that all goes well then hit the road and let the adventures begin. Just my thoughts from me not listening to my own advice but that's a topic for another day lol.
