Dockweiler State Beach is a popular long wide sandy beach near the LAX Airport in the Playa Del Rey area of Los Angeles. Inside the main state park entrance and just to the south (left turn) is a paved parking lot that is dedicated to RV campers. Tent camping is not allowed unfortunately. The campground has a nice beach with lifeguards, a paved path on the beach for walking and biking, and even fire pits for hanging out on the sand in the evenings. If you don’t intend to camp at Dockweiler State Beach there are day-use parking facilities nearby. Three parking lots are inside the main park entrance along the service road to the north (turn right). Another day-use lot is south on Vista Del Mar at the Dockweiler Bluff Parking Lot. To get to the Dockweiler State Beach Campground, head west on Imperial Highway until it ends at Vista Del Mar where the state beach entrance can be found.
