Directions

Directions
From I-405 take the Seal Beach Blvd off-ramp. Turn South on Seal Beach Blvd and travel south about 1.5 miles. Turn left at Westminster Blvd, get in the far right lane and go 100 yards to the Westminster Gate at light; turn right. After gate, follow Kitts Hwy to Forestall Av and turn right; then turn right past the Seabreeze RV Resort marque. ---- Although the RV Park tells us to use the above directions, MANY TIMES the Westminster Gate will be closed, or they won't allow the public through these gates (when ammunition is being delivered). As an alternative, directions for the main gate are: From I-405 take the Seal Beach Blvd off-ramp. Turn left on Seal Beach Blvd and travel south about 2 miles. The main gate (GATE 1) will be on your left on Forrestal Ave.. After entering the gate, the campground is a block down on your left.

Wonderful place to relax. Extremely quiet during our stay (Friday & Saturday). Other quests very hospitable around camp. Facilities very clean (i.e bathrooms, showers, and laundry). Only given a 4 on Amenities because no pool which would have been nice. All in it was a great stay.

Park is making improvements but still too many long term residents. There should be a separate area for permanent residents. It appears that the old baseball field has been surrendered to the weeds. We have had a big problem with ants getting into the motorhome even though I have used comet on the cords and water hose. Not sure how to prevent the ant problem.

This is the best campground I have ever been in. The sites are fully paved, an additional pad connected to the RV pad for parking your vehicle. The office is also the ticket office, the most helpful office staff. Take time to visit Seal Beach, nice beach area, nice shops, very touristy. Tried to get the surf city world famous surfing hunting beach. Didn't work, traffic was backed up for miles to get a parking spot. We loved the campground, but the LA area traffic is a nightmare. If you enjoy 20 mph moving on the expressway, then go for it.

This was our first time to the park, it was suggested to us by a retired Navy person. We called for reservations 4 months ago and we were looking for 2 spots side by side, which we were told that we could have, well upon arriving we were told we would not have side by side spots, one was on one side of the park and the other on the other side, now the park was not that big, but it was the 4th of July and we would have liked to be our friends. We had to wait to get our spots which someone who was in one of them had to be told to leave and we did not check in until 1500. The office at the park does not control the reservations, this is done thru the 800 number, and they of course over booked. Also this is the only park that allows people to live continuous with out checking out extended stay! So we got to spot 79, next to us was a Class A that was extended stay and we were approached by the people across from us to say to ask for another spot, the people in spot 78 were permanent and they were trouble makers, yelling screaming, and the spot they were in was HORRIBLE, DIRTY Etc. To find out these campers have been moved within the park, and have been addressed by the Base COMANDER. I am okay with extended stay RV and Full Timers! one day I hope to be part of that elite group, however if they are going to allow permanent stay they should have 2 rows for them and allow others to have the other spots. This was the only bad part of the Sea Breeze RV Resort! Positive things... The sites are HUGE and nice car parking spot on site, the sites and part was clean, oh yes FREE Laundry and ICE. The showers and restrooms were spotless!. The staff was friendly and helpful, the Night Host they are great people and have their hands full with spot 79. The beach they have at the end of the pier is nice, however cant use it when a ship is in port. Con's - Permanent spots for extended stay over 90 Days, Messy Tenants spot 79# ONLY rest are very nice and clean. Coyotes! they are all over the place, need to make sure you watch your pets, and do not leave unattended. Would I stay here again, Yes I would with the minor stuff that happened, hey you can get this any place you stay.

Absolutely gorgeous park. Very well kept with very friendly and helpful "night host". Cable didn't seem to work, but was able to get the local channels on antenna to supplement our satellite. WIFI did seem to be somewhat slow at times and for some reason wouldn't be able to connect after 1700 for anywhere from 5 to 60 min. It always came back on, so didn't pursue the problem. Wonderful free laundry with 8 washers and 8 dryers. One problem was coming through the main gate. Very narrow. Watch your mirrors.

We always enjoy coming here. Plenty to do in the area and we have family near by. But the LA traffic is very stressful. After a couple weeks, I'm ready to leave the "big city". RV Park is kept in great shape, with someone working on the yards everyday. Since the previous review on Jan 30, 2014, a recent policy change attempted to eliminate the tents and outside storage from the long-term residents, and it helped - some. There's still a few RV's with outside storage sheds, tarps covering piles of stuff, wine barrels with gardens in them, etc. But the RV Park management is going in the right direction in keeping the park's appearance clean, and not like a housing area. The free WiFi was actually pretty good and quick. Free laundry is wonderful and clean. We've noticed this park is getting busier each time we come. We now dread the day we won't be able to get a reservation. This is an annual stop for us to visit relatives. We'll be back next year!

This RV park has really gone down hill this last year. It has been allowed to become a shack town. So many sites are full of junk stacked outside along with structures from pop ups to tarps, and actual hard sided structures that look like mini garages! I am planning on posting pictures of some of them. The one with the biggest mess has 13 bikes, stacks of boxes, tracks of clothes outside. Unbelievable! This makes it extremely difficult for people like us to get reservations. We tried to make a reservation for August only to be told they only have ONE DAY available.

J.C. left this review using the Directory software: - Sea Breeze continues to shine. We have been coming here since opening and have never been disappointed. The park is well maintained and clean. If you have pets, be aware that since this is a wildlife refuge, there can be coyotes at night. Never a problem during the day. One negative is that the reservation line is seldom answered and staff do not always return calls. On the plus side, you can make reservations online.

D.A. left this review using the Directory software: - Great RV Park, free laundry with 8 washers and dryers, the best laundry facility we have seen in our 12 years of staying at military campgrounds. The rest room/shower facility is excellent, also the best we have seen. Grounds maintenance is supurb. Office staff are friendly and helpful, and the two camp host are excellent, friendly, with very professional attitudes towards the campers. They have compiled an excellent campers guide for the RV park with rules, mailing directions for USPS, UPS and FedEX, base rules and just about anything you can think of that you might need to know. Unfortunately some rules are not followed, there seems to be about 23 full time residents with storage containers, sheds, unlicensed vehicle under a tarp and miscellaneous storage under campers that detracts from this excellent RV park. Some full timers take up all the washers even though the rules state only 2 may be used a a time. Very centrally located in southern California for Long Beach, the Queen Mary, Hollywood, Disney, Knots Berry Farm and too many other attractions to mention. Freeways are ridiculously packed before 0900 and after 1600 hrs.

P.C. left this review using the Directory software: - As previous reviewers have said this is a beautiful, impeccably maintained, perfectly located campground. We've stayed here a couple of times and always enjoy it very much. A couple of notes on our experience. The front gate entrance is VERY narrow. My Class A cleared by a few inches on each side. If possible use the back gate. Secondly, if you change your reservations DO NOT do it on the weekend (office is not staffed) and DO NOT leave a voicemail on the system - talk to a person; this may take several calls. We left a voicemail on the weekend changing our arrival by 1 day and lost our reservation as a "no show" - office staff did find me a space, but also told me they don't check the voicemail - too busy. Make sure you talk to a person about any changes. It helps that ITT is located in the CG office - really convenient for tickets to local attractions. Finally, make your reservation early. The 30 day length of stay rules are completely ignored and the CG is often full. People on both sides of us have obviously been here for months - fences, storage sheds, etc. Despite the stated rules they are allowed to make a new 30 day reservation every 30 days and are thus allowed to stay as long as they want. These are not active duty folks but retirees like myself. I asked staff about it and they just laughed and said "that's the way it is." All in all a great place to stay and we'll certainly be back.

Really like this campground. The laundry is free. The RV pads are the biggest anywhere and there is plenty of room to park the car. Most sites are level and it is right next to a National Wildlife Preserve. The walking trail on base is good. It is very close to excellent bike trails that take you to Long Beach or the other direction to Huntington Beach or even up the San Gabriel River. And you can go for as long and as many miles as you feel like. The staff is very pleasant and it is a very good park. The only detractor is that many 'long term' residents JUNK up their sites with temporary storage shelters, gazebos that serve as storage shelters, or just have junk strewn all over their site. Would it stop me from coming back? No. But unless the staff gets a handle on this it is going to get out of hand. Hate to see a nice place go downhill because people take advantage. We camped in a 40' motor home.

We have a big rig. We were turned around at Forrestal gate because of size. Could have made it altho a bit tight. So went to Westminster gate--not open weekends. Did see 5th wheel go thru Forrestal, so maybe depends who's working security?! Nice campground and great location.

We love this place. It may be our favorite military campground. The staff is friendly, welcoming and helpful. The sites are the best we have seen - from the east coast to the west coast. In our mind, it rates near the top. The only detractor is the fact the base doesn't have a real Exchange (they have a small one) or Commissary. The gym is an old one but has all the equipment one needs. The bike and walking paths are great. The actual campsites are great! The concrete pads are the biggest anywhere and the grass between the sites is very nice and mowed weekly. It was a great experience. Another item besides no commissary is how many people are allowed to put up 'tarp sheds' to store all their junk. There are a few that look like they live here year round and it detracts a lot from the nice campground. Need to leave the RV park for RVers and have the homesteaders not treat it as base housing.

We love this place. It may be our favorite military campground. The staff is friendly, welcoming and helpful. The sites are the best we have seen - from the east coast to the west coast. In our mind, it rates near the top. The only detractor is the fact the base doesn't have a real Exchange (they have a small one) or Commissary. The gym is an old one but has all the equipment one needs. The bike and walking paths are great. The actual campsites are great! The concrete pads are the biggest anywhere and the grass between the sites is very nice and mowed weekly. It was a great experience. Another item besides no commissary is how many people are allowed to put up 'tarp sheds' to store all their junk. There are a few that look like they live here year round and it detracts a lot from the nice campground. Need to leave the RV park for RVers and have the homesteaders not treat it as base housing.

No vehicle sticker needed, just ID check of the driver. We were able to bring our son's car on by having my wife drive it. Minor problem with ants but sprayed all around motorhome so no more ants. There is a problem with some campers not cleaning up after their dogs. The showers are great and the laundry room has new washers and dryers. Office staff is very helpful.

Great location and a great layout. Very nice campground and a great staff. One negative , moved from one site to another to get away from aggressive ants. Minor issue. Hope to return one day. Rich and Joyce

This was my first visit to Seal Beach. I had a great time, and loved the location, and it is as good as everyone says. I just have two negative points, traffic to get there is horrendous, and they offer WiFi, but it is useless if you can connect the speeds are slower than dial up from a decade ago. Bring a smartphone or MyFi to get internet access.

This is our first visit in 18 months. Things have changed! Security is a big issue. We were told numerous new security "rules". Upon arrival with my quests, son's family, we were told they could not bring their vehicle on base and my vehicle had to have a sticker. The next day we were told that a one day pass could be issued for both vehicles. The third day we went to the ID office and were told they no longer issue stickers and my guests could not stay with us on base. After a 20 minute wait and calls to "somebody", they allowed my guests to stay, this time, but the vehicle was not allowed. They issued a pass for my vehicle. We have spent the last 5 days shuttling to and from the front gate parking lot. I believe some work needs to be done in establishing better guidelines for park users. I wanted to post this to make everyone aware. Even if you call ahead of time, things may change....be ready.

This is definitely on our list for return. Location is perfect for shopping, beach, attractions etc. Staff most helpful for securing information and obtaining tickets for attractions. Campground is very clean with nice and free laundry. Did see several coyotes, blue heron, egrets and lots of ground squirrels. We were in site 44, large, full hookups and quiet. Had no problem with critters or bugs. We used Petsmart for boarding and daycare when needed. They are located off 605 and Carson. Very good facility and would use again. Grocery of preference was in the Pavilions Shopping Center, Von's since they honor Safeway for gas discounts. Only 5 minutes away on Pacific Hwy. Seal Beach is also only 5 minutes away and beach is very nice with pier. Restaurants and some local shopping on Main. Chevron on Westminster and Seal Beach honors the gas discount. Thanks to all who made our stay nice. Amy and John Stanton

We have been coming here since they opened this facility and find it one of the best in the military system. They have all these free amenities like laundry, Wifi, CATV (reception a bit shaky!), etc. The setting is very nice being right on the preserved wetlands and location relative to beaches, shopping, and entertainment can't be beat. And now they offer a monthly rate that figures out to a bit over $25 per day! Our only gripe this visit is that for whatever reason they have let the ground maintenance get out of control. We have never seen the grass so long and shaggy. Hopefully this is due to the economic times and budget restraints and the gorgeous landscaping will come back soon. This is really our winter "home base" as we are full-timers.

A great place to stay. I stayed here for a USV-JSC Conference at the Holiday Inn, Long Beach. Only 20 min away. Nice showers and wonderful neighbors. I will use the park again.
