Lake Casitas Recreation Area, Ojai Reviews

  • Before i love to come to camping in this place and never have any problem!!!! But now I'm really mad because this people!! Charged for the spot that you have to use plus every car $20 dollars each day!! Or $140 dollars for the holidays I my daughter sleep in the freaking car all night!! That's freaking bad!!!! I never recommend this place anymore!!! If you want to have some relaxing!! Better go to the hotel Whit all the money you spend it here!!!! I will never come in back!!!!

  • My husband and I had an enjoyable time at Lake Casitas. My husband had never been. There's not much of a life left but we played cornhole at one of the campsites. I will say that the price of admission to the lake seems to have steeply increased over the past few years .. they didn't have an hourly rate, it is a daily rate so it was disappointing that we had to pay the full $15 or so and only be there for 2 hours to stop by a quick barbecue

  • Love this place... about 15 years ago my oldest son learned how to ride sans training wheels here and today my 5.5 year old did too. The lake level is historically low but the surrounding area is still beautiful.

  • Although water level is low it's a very well kept campground with grass and concrete to park your rig or trailer on. People were very friendly in shop. We have a big group that goes every mothers day and groups getting bigger every year. Kids and patents all have a blast.

  • Sad to see the lake level so low. But still a great place to camp. The water park provides a great respite on the hot summer days in Ojai
