Lake Casitas 7th Annual Rally .. October 23 to 27, 2008.... (California)

We are again returning to Lake Casitas for our 7th Annual mini-rally. The weekend will be October 23-27 Jim and I will arrive on Thursday October 23rd and will check out on Monday the October 27. We are in Space 50....

BASS campground site map ........ http://www.lakecasitas.info/camping/bass.html

As of today (April 29) there are plenty of spaces available but book ASAP as they will fill up quick.

Phone ASAP for good spaces. … $30 a night with hookups plus a non-refundable registration fee of $7.50... (If changed or cancelled, A $5 fee will be charged). I believe it is $19/night without hookups.

To receive a refund, a 72-hour notice is required for any cancellations made to your reservation.

Check in time is 2 PM. Check out time is 12 noon.
On weekdays, the latest time you can enter the park is 9pm.
On weekends, the latest time you can check in is 10pm.


Ask for BASS campground. To reserve your space, phone (805) 649 1122......
Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 3:00pm.

Please let me know if you make a reservation. You can post here or email me.

They only have one phone line - it's a problem... but the only way to reach them is to start dialing and when you get the busy signal, just hit redial, and keep redialing with no breaks - should take about 5 to 10 minutes and you will get their answer machine - hang on and someone will answer......

This will be a relaxed rally. No Potluck will be planned. Friday night, on arriving you will find a campfire where roasting hot dogs over the fire will be Friday nights dinner for anyone who would like to join in. Bring your own hot dogs, chips etc. Everyone will be on your own for dinner on Saturday. An appetizer to share before dinner and/or a dessert to share after dinner would be appreciated.

If you would like to set up something like: solar demonstration, free or for sale camp items, Dutch Oven cooking, games, etc. Please feel free to do so – I’m open to any ideas you have.

(Lake Casitas is in Southern California between Ventura and Ojai)…

From the north: Take the 101 Freeway to Highway 150 East in Carpinteria.
Continue on 150 to Lake Casitas.

From the south: Take the 33 Freeway North to Highway 150. Turn left on Highway 150 and continue to Lake Casitas. The course is on the right after Bryant Road

For more information, please see the Lake Casitas website..

Hi Carol,

You may now make Lake Casitas reservations online (For a nominal fee.. ain't it always the case?)

Clicky here for info and online reservation form.

At least they have stepped into the 90s.. nice if they stepped into this century tho

If you are adamant about certain sites or finding out specifically what is available if they don't have your request, you will still have to do it the old fashioned way, I guess.

Thanks Gina.. that's good to know.

Also, when you make a phone call to them they send the confirmation by email (use to be by snail mail)... I guess they are finally catching up.

By the way, it might just have been the time I phoned, (2:30 pm) but I only had to hold for about a minute and I made the reservation for our space and was done. Quick service this time.

I made reservations from my cell phone in the car on the way home from the Lake San Antonio rally. The phone went dead just as the clerk was giving me a confermation number. I figured it was okay and I thougt we had reserved #47. Got to thinking about it when we got home and called and found that because of not receiving the conform #, My reservation didn't go through! WHAT A BUMMER!

So, to get a sight big enough for the evening campfires, etc., had to take #57! If there is some one out there that would like to trade sights so we could be in 47 or 48, those sites are more centrally located and would be nicer for the evening camp fires. Or, would you mind if we just had the evening fires there anyway!?

Looking forward to another wonderful get-to-gether at Lake Casitas!

Hi James

I found this on Mapquest. If you live in Riverside County.. (there were 3 choices of Riverside).
Of course I don't have you exact address- try using mapquest with your address ..

I used Ojai which is just 6 miles from Lake Casitas. ( 10 minute drive)

Riverside to Ojai
Estimated Time: 2.0 hours 31 minutes
Estimated Distance: 140.58 miles

Important Info
There are others coming up Friday night - Lake Casitas does lock the entrance gate at night - I believe they lock it at 9:00 - You can ask when you make a reservation ...

(Last year we were able to have them keep the gate open for a little longer while they did their paperwork- can't guarantee this will happen again but we will try)

I hope you are coming and please let me know by email or post here.

Hope to see you in October.

Thumbs up

During past Oregon Gathering Rallies, I had hosted a Saturday Seminar titled "Avoiding Disasters for Newbies". Carol asked me if I might do that at Lake Casitas, and I agreed to do it.

This year in Oregon, I have decided to shift focus. I talked my company's General Manager into allowing me to bring two wheel weighing scales. I will arrive in Oregon a day early, so that I can set up a "Pit-Crew" site and axle weigh trailers and tow vehicles before people go to their campsites.

As I won't be able to come early to Lake Casitas, I won't be able do it the same way there. But, I could bring the scales to you at your campsite on Saturday IF you don't mind the hassle of hitching up for a short time to get weighed.

Shall I stick with The "Disaster Avoidance" Seminar or bring my Scales?
