You can make reservations up to 180 days in advance online, by phone, or in person. Full payment is due at the time of your reservation request. Many campers find out the hard way that from mid-March through September our campgrounds sell out on the weekends. 

At Lake Casitas, with over 400 sites, you can choose the camping experience that suits you best. Some sites are lakeside, close enough to hear the lapping water, others are nestled among the trees, and still more are located on hillsides offering splendid views of the sparkling lake.

We have sites to accommodate tents, tent trailers, campers and RVs, all with picnic tables and fire rings, and some with children's playgrounds close by. Shower houses with bathrooms are located at the front gate and towards the back of the park.  We also have a convenient, fenced, dry storage facility for recreational vehicles, boats, canoes & kayaks.
