Lake Casitas Recreation Area, Ojai Reviews
We camped in fox on the no sewer side and my in laws camped on the side with sewer hookups. Because they were fully booked on the sewer hookup side I didn't mind saving $20 to camp on the other side of the street across from my in law and boy did we get lucky. There were way more trees on our side and they provided some nice shade on the hot days we were there
Water level is really low right now but the lake is still good sized. The sites are nice. The campstore has everything you need. Word of warning, there are a ton of yellow jackets. We bought of few yellow jacket traps and seemed to keep most of them way.
The Water Adventure is a great place for young kids. Everything is designed for children under 48 inches. There's nothing they can't do. Lifeguards are diligent but not overly sensitive. We will definitely go again.
Crowded on the weekends! To much party going on. Not a relaxing camp ground. Restrooms are bad due to crowds. Staff is very professional and kind. Feel bad for them. Majority of the summer campers are rude! Better to camp on a Tuesday.
Always love coming here! It's my family's annual camping trip! But...if you want to get tickets for the water park I suggest purchasing them online! Otherwise they'll probably be sold out! (For Saturdays at the water park anyway)
