Discover Griffith Park, CA


Los Angeles, California is known for its bright lights and big-wig celebrity sightings, but it's also a naturally scenic wonderland. Just outside of Glendale, midway between Beverly Hills and Pasadena in the Eastern Santa Monica Mountains, you’ll find Griffith Park, over 4,200 acres of lush shrubland and heavily wooded terrain.

In the mid-1800s, Colonel Griffith J. Griffith moved to Los Angeles from Wales to join the Gold Rush. He was successful in his endeavors and began purchasing land around the Los Angeles area. In 1896, Griffith donated over 3,000 acres of his land for use as a public recreation area. This popular park grew substantially after Griffith’s passing in 1919 with a considerable trust fund donation.

If you're camping in a motorhome near Griffith Park, you're in for a treat here. The backdrop is gorgeous and the activities are vast. Whether it's hiking, outdoor sports, or swimming that you’re into, motorhome camping enthusiasts are sure to enjoy their stay. Just rent an RV in Los Angeles County and get your vacation started.

Getting Outdoors

Outdoor enthusiasts, hold onto your boots! This park has over 53 miles of trails to explore. Large cedar and oak trees lead the way through these natural woodlands. Make sure to check out the trail leading to the top of Mount Hollywood, which stands out as the highest point in the park.

If the golfing green is more your style, L.A. has a few courses to choose from. Griffith Park contains four golf courses within the park and six more within a 30-minute drive, which means you can practice your swing at up to ten different golf courses while still in the security of your home base. Whether you prefer 18 holes or nine, beginner or pro, you'll have no shortage of options for tee time during your stay.

History buffs camping near Griffith Park also get the chance to see world-renowned landmarks. Make sure to see the Los Angeles Zoo, the city's museums, the famous Bronson Caves (which you might recognize from many classic movies), and the iconic Hollywood Sign. There's also an observatory and a Greek theatre on the premises.

The park also offers an outdoor swimming pool nicknamed “The Plunge” for all the park’s swimmers to enjoy, in addition to tennis courts, soccer fields, and horseback riding trails. Griffith Park also provides bike rentals for those looking to explore the park on two wheels, or maybe just get some exercise while they’re out. Keep an eye out for special events that might be happening in the park as well. There's always some sort of community activity or event facilitated by Griffith Park.

Camping at Griffith Park

Griffith itself offers no RV campground; however, there are a couple of RV parks within a two-hour drive in the Angeles National Forest area. The Serrano Campground is the only park in the area that offers hookups of any kind. Amenities include dump stations, full hookups with 30-amp service, and flush toilets. There are also public showers for use for Los Angeles County campers. A few of the campgrounds supply fire rings and picnic tables. Some allow pets as long as they are well-behaved and on a leash.

There are hundreds of RV campsites available in this expansive national recreation area, and most are available on a first-come, first-served basis. And, of course, in the Angeles National Forest, the backdrop is glorious. If you don’t mind the drive, RV camping in the Angeles National Forest area is a great way to see the natural Californian landscape during your stay.

Exploring the Area

Griffith Park is pulsing with things to do on the premises itself as well as nearby. If exotic animals and family fun interests you, check out the Los Angeles Zoo, located in the northeastern section of the grounds. Discover scaly invertebrates, swinging mammals, and curious reptiles. The flora in the zoo is lush and vibrant as well. Plenty of events and shows happen every day at the Los Angeles Zoo, so bring the family and learn all about the natural world.

For all the space fanatics who might be visiting the park, reach for the stars at the Griffith Observatory. There's always something happening at the Griffith Observatory, located in the southwestern section of the park. Facilities are available for lectures, classes, special events, and even birthday parties. Wander through the cosmos in the planetarium exhibit and learn all about our solar system and those surrounding us.

When Colonel Griffith passed away and left his trust fund to improve the park, one of his stipulations was the construction of a Greek theater. This nearly 6,000-seat venue hosts some of the biggest acts performing in America today. Constructed in the 1920s, the Greek Theatre was a joy to behold just as much then as it is now. Check out the calendar online and see who's going to be playing while you’re in the area. You can book your tickets online or in person at the venue.

When your Griffith Park camping trip has reached its end and it's time to get back on the road, you won’t have far to go to fill up. Just south of the park is a whole slew of gas stations to choose from. There are also a few major towns surrounding the park, so every type of restaurant you could possibly want is at your disposal. Then, once you’re highway-ready, I-5 borders the eastern side of the park and can take you up the coast or south to Santa Ana.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.
