Sadly, this place has gone downhill. We have stayed here before, about once a year. Probably even an old review here. But after last year and this time, no more. There are better places in SoCal. Stayed in Bass this time. Water and Electric, but over-run by partiers, even mid-week. The young couple in the tent next to us were quite proud of their wide-ranging tastes in music, and were quite willing to share. Our children (14 and 8) have "outgrown" most of the water park, and were bored within 1 hour. The restrooms were atrocious, some campers thought it was appropriate to throw used toilet tissue in the corner of the stall instead of flushing it. Despite last winter's heavy rains, the lake is still low. All in all, a very disappointing experience. Lake Casitas, we wanted to give you one last chance, but you failed us. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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.

There is only 30 amp service in the full hook up sites (where the larger RVs would usually be), which is not sufficient during hot weather for a 40+ RV. As a previous camper stated, it is not comforting to have fires when the fire danger is listed as "High". The campground should not permit this. We probably would stay somewhere else if we are in the area again. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

The location was wonderful. We saw an amazing diversity of birds in the 3 days we were there. The campground itself is not great. Most of the toilets are vault toilets, and when we got there they were disgusting. Fortunately there was a real bathroom with ok showers near the entrance, which was close to our site. The sites are pretty small, with nothing separating them. My main complaint is people are noisy here! Radios were blaring. There is nothing about a quiet time. Even though we were in a hook up site, some guy nearby was running his generator starting at 6:30. I think it might have a reputation as the place to go if you do not want to be considerate of your neighbors. We were in the B loop, with a nice lake view. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Tent 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. We camped at Lake Casitas Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
