It’s a lovely campground nearby Ojai. A tiny one way road weaves around a hill and connects all the spots. Only one site has an unobstructed view of the Valley (#15) but that one was occupied when I arrived and I had a lovely view from my site.
Campgrounds in this area are booked by signing on to the Venture website after you arrive and selecting which spot you’re reserving. It’s pretty straightforward. Mine was $26 for the night and I’m here end of December. There is a light dusting of snow on the mountains. It got down into the 30’s last night.
It's easy to get yourself into nature out here near Ojai and this spread out campground is also easy to get to. Right off a main road just out of town, with running water and bathrooms.
This site allows both fires and pets. Plenty of spaces for all types of campers.
It gets three stars because it's usually crowded and can be loud at night depending on road traffic and other campers
Nice clean park with great views of our local mountains and the Ojai valley. One of the things we didn’t like was that the lower sites are so close to the highway and traffic can get noisy during the day. However once nighttime comes around it gets really quiet. Hoping to get a upper site on our next visit. Overall, the park is a nice weekend getaway with out having to drive so far.
Stayed in site 1. The closest flush toilets are closed but there are ones near the road that are nice. Spot 15 looks great and if I ever go back I’d try to get that one, but if you do stay there then it’s a honey hut that’s close-by. Didn’t check out the lower campground, but walked the main loop and there’s some great views of the valley and the stars. It was nice having two big tables in our spot and a water spigot was close by. There’s some road noise, but otherwise it was peaceful in the winter. There’s a day use area that I imagine gets more attention in the summer. Cell service was great for ATT (cell tower near-by). Check out The Summit drive in a few miles up the road for a tasty burger :)
