We were searching for places to visit in Malibu, my husband discovered this park. It is beautiful. We spent around 3 hours hiking and enjoying the beautiful scenery. There was a pond that you can fish. I imagined there should be number of movies that were filmed here aside from MASH. The place was amazing . It is really great... More

This was a hard walk in 100 degree heat for two over 60's but it was well worth the effort. Great to see the helicopter pad, hospital and have photo taken by famous sign. Great also to recognise the hills and scenery around the camp. A highlight of the holiday. Also lovely scenery and wildlife.

We practically stumbled upon Malibu Creek State Park and after a light hike one morning, we returned and walked five miles round trip to the site where MASH was filmed (the outdoor scenes) from 1972 to 1983. It was a wonderful opportunity combine a light-to-moderate hike with a bit of pop culture history. Highly recommended.

Just beautiful, MASH site a must visit for fans of the show. Numerous movies filmed here, Planet of the Apes, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and many more. Rock pool is lovely, don't go on weekends in the summer unless you like loud teenagers cliff jumping (park staff does not patrol area adequately, site of numerous rescues). Great escape... More

If you looking for a nice, easy and relatively pretty hike, this is a nice park. Don't bother paying for the trail maps as they are posted elsewhere in the park (and you can find them on your phone). But also, they don't help much. I used the GPS on my phone to look at where we were. If you... More

Great day hike anywhere from 1 hour to 3. There is also a small pond like area that the kids can get wet in at the end of the hike.

If you are looking for a day hike that includes a piece of Hollywood history, definitely head toward Malibu Creek Park. The highlight is visiting the former site of the TV series MASH and taking pictures in front of old props left behind after filming wrapped.
