For many visitors, a trip to Los Angeles isn’t complete without experiencing the natural beauty that surrounds the city. Whether your hotel is in Downtown L.A. or at the beach, there are numerous L.A. County and California State Parks located a short drive away. From spectacular coastal settings to rugged mountains and otherworldly desert landscapes, these parks offer a wide range of daytime activities and options for camping overnight. Read on and find out more about camping sites near Los Angeles.
To make online reservations at L.A. County Parks, use the Activities Reservation & Registration System (LACARRS) to reserve and/or register for County services and programs, including RV Park, camping, picnic, facilities, and rooms.
Online reservations for California State Parks can be made via the ReserveCalifornia system. The format is similar to booking hotel rooms or airline tickets - after creating a profile, you'll be able to reserve campsites and lodging up to six months in advance.
