When most people think of the classic South Bay beaches they usually think of Manhattan and Hermosa Beach. Some don’t even realize that El Segundo has a beach but not only does it have a beach, it’s unique and expansive.
Much effort has been put into making Dockweiler a destination beach, with a great RV park, a newer volleyball court area, miles of great beaches, endless areas to surf, the Marvin Braude bike path, ocean view snack bar, youth center and fairly good parking. If that’s not enough you can even try hangliding just off of small bluff.
Unlike most area beaches the fun doesn’t have to end at night with one of the few locations that allows bonfires on the beach in the numerous fire ring areas.
Dockweiler RV Park
Dockweilers is Los Angeles County’s only RV campground right at the beach. Pull up and enjoy beachfront camping and the great weather year round means it’s not just good in the summer. Dockweiler RV park offers a pump-out station, hot showers, and a laundromat. Each campsite has its own picnic table and barbecue.
The 22-mile Marvin Braude Bicycle Trail is only a few pedals away from the camp, connecting the RV Park with nearby attractions such as Redondo Beach Pier, Venice, Santa Monica beaches and Marina del Rey.
