“Lots of RV and tent camping near lake, water park, and about 15 minutes from Ojai”

Overall Rating

We came in without reservations on a Saturday in May (pre-Memorial Day) and had a number of RV sites with electric and water hookups still available. The guest services people were very helpful and gave us a free pass and list of available sites to check out, choose from and return to pay for.

Over 400 sites brocken into several campgrounds/sections (letters A through O) are spread along the lake road. We chose E over I because there were fewer sites and they were farther apart. The fanciest RV sites, that also cost more per night, are in campground F (Fox). Those seem to have concrete pads, grass and full hookups.

Our camp, E, has water and 30/20 amp electric, but no sewer hookup. Not a problem as there are two dump stations within the Lake Casitas recreation area, free if you are staying at the park. Our site was flat, wide and quiet. There was occasional road and car stereo noise from vehicles driving along the lakeshore road, but there are bumps all along the road that keep speeds low.

The lake is big enough to fish and launch a boat. No swimming is allowed, but there is a Water Park that you can go into for an additional day fee. There is also lots of picnicking, bike trails and disc golf.
