Pricey. We stayed in Bass over the Labor Day weekend because the one we normally stay in (Egret) was full. Very noisy with a lot of late night partying. Bass has very close quarters. Other campgrounds have more room. We usually are only here at night. Campgrounds are usually full on weekends but fairly empty on weekdays. Enjoy coming to Ojai as there is great bicycling here. Staff friendly and helpful. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice, large sites in executive area. So sad that the lake is almost gone: it was only 40% when we were here due to our drought. The campgrounds are very nice but expensive. Water park opens in August. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Camp store has most of what you might need, but town is very close to go to the supermarket.

This park was a wonderful surprise. We reserved a full-hookup executive site in F. The hookups worked well, the site was clean when we arrived, and we had a quiet loop. Nice playground and the loop was very kid-friendly – lots of kids playing nicely and riding bikes. The camp store is the best we've seen. It was well-stocked and the prices were decent. We went to the water park twice on weekdays and it wasn't too crowded. My kids loved it. The staff everywhere we went was friendly. The cafe near the boat ramp serves good food for decent prices. We'll be back. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We had a pretty miserable experience here, admittedly due to the other campers more than the actual area. It was a madhouse, with tons of rude campers who did not care at all about the quiet time and were loud well into the night. No park staff to address the issue. And because of the crowds, the bathrooms and showers were filthy. It didn't help that the facilities had one sign up that said they were closed for cleaning from 12-1 daily, another that said 2-3 daily, but actually they were closed whenever the staff got around to it, which turned out to be pretty much any time we wanted to use it. There are some nice things about the lake and overall area, but I'd never camp there again anytime that school's out. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

I can agree with what prior reviews have offered. But, like most of the California RV Parks, this is way overpriced compared to the rest of the USA. I am not sure where one finds a cable TV connection here. Look at their online reservation site for good descriptions of the various types of sites.

My wife and I stayed here in November and it was very nice. Great little cafe by the boat launch and lots of trees on our campsite. Best to get one of the sites with full hook-ups so book early, they were all gone by the time we made reservations so we had to watch our water level. We would definitely come back but prefer the Fall season over the crowds in the summer. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here during school spring break for many years now, and even tent camped here long before we purchased our travel trailer. The Executive sites are spacious, have level pads, nice grass and views of the lake. The lake is very large, and offers lots of activities. We had a great lunch at the Marina Cafe, and talked all about fishing with the friendly staff at the Marina Store. We rented a pontoon boat for the day, and even took the dogs on board. The fishing was great! This is a park we look forward to every time. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Great place for kids, especially if you use the water park! Sites were nice and level. Nice, friendly staff. We stayed in a partial hook-up site with electric and water. You can stay in a full-hook up site for $55 a night. Sites were a little close together in our loop. Half of the spaces were empty, but if the campground was full (as it is almost every weekend in summer) it would have been a little cramped. Lake was beautiful. If you fish, this is the place to be! Great cafe over-looking lake if you don't feel like cooking breakfast. The only issue we had were the yellow jackets. They were everywhere (there was even an underground nest in our site!), but they didn't seem to bother us too much. If we did more eating outside, however, I could see it being a problem. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the full hookup spots near the boat launch. camp spots were clean. The Hornets are terrible. The cable does not work. The staff also were pumping out the sewage tanks during breakfast. They also water for hours every night, I guess to keep the hornets around, make sure you pick up everything every night that you dont want wet.

Large campground situated on a beautiful lake. Most sites are on the dirt with a few trees scattered around for shade. Not many grassy areas for the kids to play. A cute little water park is located within the campground with a lazy river and kids play area for a $12 admission charge per day. Since you cannot swim in the lake, this is the only way to cool off at this park. In the end, I spent $105 on the campsite for 3 days and unfortunately $147 in admission charges to cool off in the water. Very average campground with poor trash collection. Our spot was next to 3 dumpsters that were overflowing with trash and debris for our entire stay. Can't recommend this one a probably won't be back.

This is a very nice campground. There are many different site options to choose from. We stayed in the I campground which included water & electric hookups. There are cable boxes, but no cable service. We were walking distance to the lake. The campground is clean and well maintained. Would stay here again.

Great campground; there is even a waterpark for the kids. Close to town, but you don't have to leave if you don't want to. There is a store and a couple of places to get food. No swimming or skiing in the lake, but there is fishing. If you don't have a boat you can rent one. We will definitely go back. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
