If you are traveling in your RV along Highway 1 or exploring southern California, you more than likely have Disneyland California on your list of places to go. In fact, many of us who enjoy the RV lifestyle have California on our list. And even though Disneyland is right in the heart of the urban LA suburb of Anaheim, there are a couple of great options for RV parks near Disneyland. So we’ve gathered a list of some of the top RV parks near Disneyland where you can stay and play! From private RV parks, luxury parks, RV parks on the beach and even a couple state and local parks where you can camp for a great value and just a short drive away from Disneyland.
Note: If you are looking for Disney’s RV Park called Fort Wilderness, then that is actually in Disney World Florida…not Disneyland California. Click here to read our Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground post for details about that park specifically.

More To Do in Southern California
Making a trip to southern California usually involves more than just visiting Disneyland. Even when we make a trip primarily to visit Disney, we can’t help but explore other areas in LA and the nearby coast because there is just SO much to see and do in the LA area!
We enjoy stopping off at the Santa Monica Pier, or enjoying Newport or Huntington Beaches. There’s also the famous Hollywood area, markets in downtown LA, and of course other theme parks such as Universal Studios and Knotts Berry Farm.
One of the reasons that we love RV travel is that we have more freedom to travel at our own pace and stay in different locations. When in LA, we have stayed at really nice RV parks and resorts, but we’ve also stayed at park on the beach and even some local and public parks where camping can be really cheap. In fact, these local park campgrounds are probably some of the most budget-friendly options you can find in southern California!
No matter the type of RV or trailer or camper that you may have…or even if you are tent camping, you’ll find here on our list that there are some really great places to camp in and around LA that are convenient to Disney and so many other fun things to do.

They also sell Disney Park tickets here too and it is a stop on the public transportation if you don’t want to drive into Disney and park. If you miss the fireworks at the park, no worries.

Anaheim Harbor is in a fantastic location close to Disneyland. The RV Park is actually walking distance to Disneyland, which is fantastic because you don’t have to worry about parking and it’s super convenient to go back and forth if you need to. Although, if you don’t want to walk – no worries! You can also take the local transportation shuttle to and from the park. This is also a great park to be able to enjoy the Disneyland fireworks at night too.
This is a clean, well-maintained RV park that has full hookups, a heated swimming pool, laundry room, showers, and internet access.

Have you ever stayed on an orange farm? Orangeland RV Park is a beautiful RV Park located near Anaheim and Los Angels. This park claims to be the highest rated park in the area and is great for all sizes of RVs. In season many of the sites have orange trees you can pick your morning oranges from. That doesn’t sound too bad.
The park has the feel of a warm and friendly family-run business, built in 1972 and the same family still owns it! The park has pull-through sites, full hookups, a spa and large heated swimming pool, as well as free wifi and cable TV.

This RV park is located 20 minutes from downtown Anaheim, but it’s a fantastic family-fun park! This park is actually just outside of town in the mountain area along the Santa Ana River.

These parks offer luxury amenities, incredible views, and are a nice option so you don’t have to move your RV during your trip. You can park it and just drive your car to visit Disneyland and other popular LA area attractions!
Located in Newport Beach, this RV Park is an awesome place to stay if you want to enjoy all that’s great about southern California while also being able to travel to Disneyland for some fun during your trip.

They also have summer movie nights on the beach, a convenience store, poolside clubhouse and cabanas, and laundry facilities. This park also has extended stay options for those who want to stay longer term (like a month or two) so you can enjoy the best of the SoCal lifestyle!
Another great option for those of you who want to camp with gorgeous views of the ocean and be right on the beach! Huntington Beach is a popular area and a gorgeous stretch of golden sand. This is a large park that can accommodate large rigs up to 45 feet in length.
There is a swimming pool as well as a game room with various games, such as a pool table. But mostly, this is a great park if you want to spend your free time (aside from the Disney parks) hanging out at the beach and in a fun beachside town with lots to do for visitors and locals.
