Lake Casitas Recreation Area Reviews & Ratings
Scenery was gorgeous. Definitely a good place to be on a nice and breezy summer day. Only problems was the snake skin I found near our picnic site. Overall pleasant experience.
Very beautiful place. Always relaxing. Ive been coming here for 6 yrs now and will still continue to. Love it here. Rangers don't bug, other campers keep to themselves. No problems ever.
Came in late and stayed in overflow on the back side of the lake. The staff and rangers where super friendly and helpful. The other guests where friendly quiet and the evening was cool with a nice breeze. Not loud at all. Loved hearing the sounds of nature while we settled down for the night. We RV camp so no need to use the facilities but there are flushing toilets water facet near every sight.
I give it a 2 star because I remember the days when it had A LOT of water. If you are into walking Lake Casitas is nice to walk. Just don't expect to see a lot of water.
I love the lake. I keep hoping someday it will be full again. Beautiful lake surrounded by mature trees. Good boat launch ramp. All services available.
