“Not as advertised!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

I do not recommend this park! Extremely crowded, it's for small units. It's a campground and that's it! If you're looking for a resort this is NOT one! Also, it is NOT right ON the beach, it's walking distance and next to a beach ACROSS a highway!! Big difference to us!! Selling lots that aren't suitable for units is poor service! Los Angeles area NEEDS a true resort! We travel the country and this one ranks at the bottom. Instead of the management/owner (whomever the stuck up lady is) walking around commenting on customers units perhaps she should get to work on the park!

Beautiful views and ok RV Park. Most unfriendly staff ever encountered. Lots of rules. Children and pet unfriendly. Mainly back in sites that do not allow views from front of RV. Very difficult beach access. Very expensive and charge day rate for visitors. Allow 2 pets per site and do not allow day visitors pets to exceed the original two. Suggest find another park.

Fantastic location, spotless campsite and staff monitoring arrivals, parking and noise - who can ask for more. I wouldn't say the staff was overly friendly but who cares once you see the views? The location is amazing but there are important differences in the sites. We stayed in a regular Ocean View site (#47) with electric and water. The Ocean View sites are narrow. We could not fit our picnic table beside the RV and if we had our awning down it would have hit an RV with a pop out next door. Luckily we were there on a weekend in early March so there was plenty of empty sites allowing us views and extra space. If the campground was full I imagine it would feel very claustrophobic in the Ocean View and Mountain sites. My rule of thumb would be to book Ocean View during off seasons when occupancy is lower, and Premium Ocean View during high season when every site is full as you will appreciate the extra space. My only complaint is they charged us $5 for each of our kids - they should allow 2 adults + 2 children per RV. Also lots of signs saying no scooters, skateboards, bikes etc - wouldn't say this park is particularly family friendly.

Room Tip: The Ocean View sites are narrow. We could not fit our picnic table beside the RV and if we had our a...

This is a great RV park the views are stunning , staff really friendly and helpful, we haven't any other transport other than the RV so we caught the 534 west bound local bus which runs every 1/2 hour the bus stop is by the petrol station just past the traffic lights this takes you to Paradise Cove which is really expensive to go on the beach it costs $20 each per walker and $30 car parking although it's beautiful cove it's better to stay on the bus and go to Zuma Beach Beach Drive. Stop- it's free to go on and has a fantastic beach too approx 10-15 min ride cost of bus ride $1.50
If you want to go into Santa Monica again you can do this by catching the 534 east bound the stop is opposite the petrol station right by the traffic lights cost of bus ride again $1.50 and takes about 40 mins you can get off at Santa Monica Boulevard stop it's a great way of getting about!
You will find the Whole food store there if you need food provisions.
We found that the time of the buses were just past the hour and 1/2 hour but this is a guide you may have a small wait. There is. Of course a beautiful stretch of beach straight across from the RV park if you don't want to go too far
The Seafood restaurant is well worth going too you can eat outside or take them back to the park very tasty and reasonably priced you get 10% discount off if you mention when ordering before you pay that you are staying the RV park even more of a bargin!
Note there aren't really any convenience stores other than the RV shop which has the basics the petrol station near by also has a few bits too the RV park stocks extra length cables and dump pipes etc so you won't have a problem if you only have short ones in your RV.
It's lovely seeing Dolphins every day we have been here a week with our 2 teenage boys and haven't got bored once

Room Tip: We had plot 27 ocean view which is located opposite the Laundry area and just round from there are t...

We brought our 22' trailer here for five days on a business trip and the views are phenomenal. Paid extra for an ocean view but even the mountain view spots have views of the ocean. Super friendly staff when we checked in - couple of younger guys and didn't see the mean people in another review so maybe they no longer work here:) Bathrooms are clean and water is hot in the showers which is nice. This spot would get a 5 except for the road noise and not much they can do about it. It does get much quieter at night but we ran our fan on high which drowned it out. At $57 a night for these views, it is a great deal.

Room Tip: Ocean view spots on the higher levels might be quieter but they are also more expensive. Mountain v...

We made our reservations almost 6 months ago, spoke to a female and a male and neither one told us that an ocean view spot was a BACK IN. Most motorhomes head in for the view, 5th wheels and trailers usually back in. When one heads in, the utilities are on the wrong side! OK if you have long sewer hose and electric.
Why they would not tell people this is beyond me. When I asked at the office, the lady seemed mystified that a customer would need to know this information; she said, "We never mention that".
Other than that, sites have incredible views for miles, flowers attract humming birds and clean laundry rooms were right behind our site. Dog walks are a bit steep, but nice to have. T
he sounds of the surf are wonderful when the traffic noise dies down after commute time.
Great seafood place at the bottom of the hill.
We would come back for the ocean views, what a sight to see first thing in the morning when the sun is rising!

If you've got kids or pets, stay away! These people that manage the place all obviously hate what they do (except Summer who was very nice), The night manager, the day manager, the two old woman in the store that wear stupid scarves and when you ask about why they wear them they get annoyed...hey, it was 80 degree weather, okay? Anyway, great views, dusty sites, no grass areas at all and a BE ABSOLUTELY QUITE AFTER 8 PM told to us umpteen times...yes, we're quiet, but it's like you aren't doing them any favours being there and I guess for the view, that could be true. I had a couple of rescue dogs (small) dropped off and they said over the phone to me WHY ARE YOU STILL IN OUR PARK WITH THOSE DOGS? YOU NEED TO BE GONE RIGHT NOW! It was about 1/2 hour past check out time and no one was waiting to get into our site. Granted, I get we had to leave, but you don't have to be a rude idiot when communicating with me. Clean bathrooms. Attitude is pretty much everything and just because you have a great location doesn't give you the right to treat people like crap. Happy to have left!
