We went last June to do some weekend camping, and ended up being there during the same time as the Ojai Wine Festival and it was a really awesome surprise. There were dozens of wineries represented and of course, quite a bit of wine tasting. It was super classy and well put-together; definitely not what us campers had expected. The camping was nice too, definitely over-shadowed by the festival, but we liked the small group site and all the amenities. The site wasn't too far from the lake, so at night, we could hear the water lapping about and it was really soothing. The boat rentals are a pinch pricey, but well worth it! We caught some beautiful carp which the men of the group obviously were super proud of. There were plenty of spots for picnics so we would smoke the fish from the night before and have picnics around mid-afternoon when the temperature isn't too unbearable, and everyone really enjoyed that. Overall, a great campground; go there in June! - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
