This was my 4th camping experience at Lake Casitas. The previous 3 were average, but the 4th one was a much better experience. Improvements from previous ones: 1) The restrooms were cleaner and it looks like they are now taking the trouble to clean up regularly. Always ensure you get the sites with flush toilets and avoid the sites with... More

The site is a beautiful site. Camping is a horrible experience. Loud music 24 hours a day. Rangers do not bother to keep any rules. We were subjected to LOUD rap music with a F*#** or Suck words every minute. No respect at all. Never again. Our group spent one miserable night and did not stay the two nights we... More

This Lake is going down the drain. Literally and figuratively. The drought is out of anyone's control, so that is not their fault. This company has made mistake after mistake over the years. First off, hiring some pathetic excuses for staff. I am not talking about the temporary lifeguards, and gate people they get in to cover when it's busy... More

I decided to visit Lake Casitas for the first time this Labor Day weekend. My wife and I had some concerns because of some of the negative prior reviews. I most say that I was glad we did. My wife and I are advent campers. In fact: we had visited several neighboring campground earlier this year. I must say that... More

This is a favorite spot for big groups who want to drink and carouse late into the night, blasting their music, without any concern that a park host of a ranger will get in the way of their fun. Our friends in the Creekside campground were kept up until 2:30 am by one group, and then another stared cooking at... More

I fish here at Lake Casitas 2-3 days a week and keep my boat docked here in a slip. The camp sites are welcoming and they have great facilities. My only word of advise is to make sure you bring quarters for the shower! If you have time to go fishing on your trip I highly recommend it! You can... More

Worst customers service. Waiting all day because someone has set up in our spot, which was suppose to be reserved for my family. Kept coming back after every 2 to 3 hours and still nothing. They can't kick them out. So much for 6 months in advance reservations. Do not come!

We were driving our small RV and on a lark decided to visit Ojai. While there, we found Lake Casitas, and were so impressed after our first night that we stayed a second. Lake Casitas is so close to Ojai that I couldn't at first find this listing because I expected it to have an Ojai address vs. Ventura. It's... More

The lake was remarkably quiet for a sunny Sunday. The girls loved the boat & picnic. The corner market deli used to be better, we will get picnic in Ojai next time. The cost of the 4 hour rental has gone up to $85. Be aware that all the great boutiques close promptly at 5pm on Sundays. The Indian head... More

We drove down to the lower boat ramp, and then onto the gravel that runs along the very low waterline. After a minute or so we decided to turn back by starting a three-point turn onto the dirt AWAY from the lake. Instantly our wheels were caught in mud that you would not have suspected was there under the dry... More
