  • We had 9 motorhomes and all got to camp together across the street from each other. Nice lawn area with big trees. The water park was closed for the winter but it looks like it would be fun in the sum...  more »
  • We had not been to Lake Casitas in many years and were very surprised at how very low the water level is. The guys at the boat rental “shop” were really nice and helpful. The map of the lake was a lit...  more »
  • Low water level and still a nice lake. Gradually refilling in spite of the drought. Fishing is fun, even though I have never caught a fish from this lake. Just pleasant to rest on the shore,. Bird wat...  more »

  • Wonderful place, beautiful and Serene. Helpful Ranger staff, very accessible with plenty of parking. Be sure to check out the paired Eagles as in bald eagles that are nesting by the lake. Kids loved it, height ran around had a great time! Definitely worth the effort and worth the trip.
  • I love the parks for my girls to play at. It is always very clean. We love to go fishing here. The only bummer is that you can't swim in the lake, and that it is a little pricey if you only plan on buying day passes.
  • Lake Casitas has many campgrounds, ranging from full hookup RV sites on concrete or ground, to tent sites along a creek or near the lake. We have stayed, and enjoyed, the Bass campground. It's got E/W only, but surrounds a grassy area great for family fun. There is an eagles nesting area in the park. During the summer months, there is a water park.
  • Beautiful place for kids and family.....been coming here for years......fishing can be great.....put it this way my 2 girls learned how to ride their bikes here.....everyone here is friendly.....enjoy hope this helps
  • I love camping at the lake they have so many camp sites. With and without hookups they are clean have fire pits close to water and clean restrooms. They even have handicap spots. Also a tackel shop resturant and grocer store. It's really beautiful when the lake is full. Its sad that the lake is so low. Its still a great place to go camping.
