Harbor Guide - Guest Docks
Burton W. Chace Park guest docks are public docks provided by Los Angeles County Department of Beaches & Harbors, and whose use is managed by the Marketing & Community Services Division.
These docks are available for use by vessels transiting the coast and which may be seeking refuge from inclement weather, or laying in for minor repairs, replenishing supplies, or visiting. A portion of these docks -- posted as "Park Dock, 4-hour maximum" -- may also be used by locally based vessels under a casual visitor status.
Overnight and four-hour guest docks are available for visitors on a first-come, first-served basis at Burton Chace Park, located between Basin A and B.
