Beachfront RV Park Becomes Coronavirus Isolation Zone in Playa Del Rey, California
Dockweiler RV Park in Playa Del Rey has become an COVID-19 isolation zone according to CBSN Los Angeles.
RVs are being delivered to the park to house the infected.
This four-star rated campground on Campendium is known for its beachfront views and ocean access. Now, however, CBSN says, “Residents are being asked to avoid the area north of 12505 Vista Del Mar, where the Youth Center and Beach Cafe are located”
The RV Park website states, “The RV Park is unable to take your reservation at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience.”
Why Is The RV Park Closed?
Similar to the strategy used at Georgia State Parks, Los Angeles County has preemptively selected this park to isolate coronavirus patients.
The park guests were asked to leave “due to the need for emergency shelter related to the COVID-19 virus.”
According to Fox11, “In a notice handed out to RV residents, the park said that county emergency services required the space to shelter individuals impacted by the coronavirus.”
Highly Rated RV Park by Travelers
The Dockweiler RV Park has received high marks from RV travelers. Palm trees, sandy beaches and ocean waves draw thousands of visitors every year.
Alice on Campendium says, “The front row looks nice if you’re staying for a long time as you are literally right on the beach, however for us the cheaper spots worked out perfectly as we could still see/access the beach from where we were. The showers and free and nice. There’s drinking water available and the spaces are huge (especially for our 19 foot). Staff were very helpful and friendly”
Public Campgrounds & RV Parks Have Mixed Strategies
Multiple State Parks around the country have begin closing or adjusting hours. New Mexico has suspended camping all State Park Campgrounds. Pennsylvania has closed a few State Parks.
On the other hand, Texas and Florida State Parks have sent out messages saying they’re still open for business.
