If you want to go camping near Disneyland, the first thing you need to know is that Disneyland does not operate any RV campgrounds.
The places listed below are your best - and closest - options.
The Disneyland area is very busy, especially during summer and school holidays, and all forms of lodging fill up fast. That includes these RV parks. It is recommended you make reservations as far in advance as you can. However, many of Disneyland camping places charge cancellations fees that get higher if you cancel with less than two weeks' notice.
If you plan to drive your RV to Disneyland, oversized parking is a little more expensive than automobile parking, but still reasonable when compared to the cost of tickets.
To park in the oversized vehicle parking lot, use the main entrance to the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure, which is south of the Disneyland Drive and Ball Road intersection.
Some of the parks below have Disneyland shuttles or are on the Anaheim Resort Trolley route. Before you count on using the shuttle, check its schedule to be sure it's flexible enough for your needs.
Anaheim Harbor is the closest campground to Disneyland. Their spaces can accommodate 40-foot RVs with bump outs. They have full hookups and a heated swimming pool, a laundry room, free WiFi, and cable television. You can even see the Disneyland fireworks from your parking spot – although they will be much more beautiful inside the park.
Anaheim Harbor also has smaller campsites and places where you can camp in a tent (4 people max per tent site).
