Lake Casitas Recreation Area, Ojai Reviews

  • Wonderful place, beautiful and Serene. Helpful Ranger staff, very accessible with plenty of parking. Be sure to check out the paired Eagles as in bald eagles that are nesting by the lake. Kids loved it, height ran around had a great time! Definitely worth the effort and worth the trip.

  • Lake Casitas has many campgrounds, ranging from full hookup RV sites on concrete or ground, to tent sites along a creek or near the lake. We have stayed, and enjoyed, the Bass campground. It's got E/W only, but surrounds a grassy area great for family fun. There is an eagles nesting area in the park. During the summer months, there is a water park.

  • I love camping at the lake they have so many camp sites. With and without hookups they are clean have fire pits close to water and clean restrooms. They even have handicap spots. Also a tackel shop resturant and grocer store. It's really beautiful when the lake is full. Its sad that the lake is so low. Its still a great place to go camping.

  • Love this place! Its very large, lots of exploring to be done. We see rabbits, quail, deer, hawks and even an eagle in the nest down past the storage lot.

  • Beautiful camping area. Well maintained. Helpful, friendly staff. We will definitely be back.
