Hollywood may be Tinseltown but Culver City is the "Heart of Screenland". Within half an hour's drive of Los Angeles, Culver City is home to many film studios, including the original MGM Studios in the early 20th century. To this day, moviemaking continues to flourish in the many sound stages found throughout the city.

Named after its founder Harry Culver, the city is mostly flat with a few hilly places like the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook (which locals call the Culver City Stairs). The waves of the Pacific Ocean crash into the shores of Santa Monica, and from Los Angeles, the Pacific Coast Highway begins. Or you can book an RV in Culver City and prepare for an altogether different adventure in the San Gabriel Mountains 60 miles away.

Discover Culver City

A Crest to Coast Journey on Your RV

Less than 15 minutes away by Culver City motorhome rental lies the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area where you can fish in the lake, hike, cycle, or ride a horse on more than five miles of trails, or spy wildlife living in the park's native coastal sage scrub. As one of the inner-city parks of the surrounding urban areas, the park also welcomes locals and visitors alike with amenities like fitness zones, multi-use playing fields, and BBQ/picnic sites. There's also a relaxing Japanese garden and interpretive exhibits.

Looking west, the Santa Monica State Beach beckons with its 3.5-mile long coastline and 245 acres of soft sand. There's no roughing it here if you head to the Santa Monica Pier, home to restaurants and also an amusement park and aquarium. Find a sandy beach break near Bay Street, pedal along the 22-mile paved South Bay Bicycle Trail or "The Strand", or get a good gymnastic workout at Muscle Beach. There are plenty of parking spaces here for your Culver City camper rental, though parking can be a challenge in the summer months (a good reason to take the Big Blue Bus to get around town).

Breathe fresh mountain air at the Topanga State Park, home to some 11,500 acres of the Santa Monica Mountains. Find the best RV rental in Culver City and drive into Trippet Ranch for safer parking and for easy access to the main trailhead that will eventually lead you to Eagle Rock and Parker Mesa Overlook. The latter will reward you with views of the Pacific Ocean, and if you want to see the same breathtaking views but you don't have the luxury of time, take the ivy and chaparral-lined Los Liones Trail instead. From your perch, you can see not only Santa Monica but also the Pacific Palisades and the ocean beyond.

Where to Park Your RV

A day trip to the beach may not be enough for you, and you may want to stay the night and wake up to pounding surf. If so, the Dockweiler Beach in Playa del Rey is the closest you can get to being oceanside and within 20 minutes' drive of Culver City. You'll have 3.7 miles of ocean frontage to explore, and 288 acres of sand to dig your toes in. Give your legs a good workout on the bicycle path a few pedals away from the camp, or cast a line from one of the jetties on the north end of the beach. Bring your Culver City RV rental here and you'll be able to hook it up to Dockweiler RV Park's electricity, water, and sewer services, and take advantage of its showers and laundry facilities.

There are a few campgrounds with RV sites within 30 miles of Culver City and are worth looking into if you want full hookups, clean showers, and access to freeways that easily get you to some of the most sparkling attractions in southern California.

Spending a day or two in a Walmart parking lot is an economical alternative if you'd like to stay closer to Culver City. Seek permission from the store manager for overnight parking in Walmart stores in Hawthorne and Torrance as they are within 10 miles of downtown Culver City. However, you don't have to drive for miles to refuel: you'll find several gas stations in Culver City open 24/7.
