Beautiful natural large RV campsites in the Valley of the Moon (Ojai Valley). Our sites are within an eighth of a mile of walking, running, biking and riding trails that run from the city of Ojai to the beaches of Ventura. On many days you can experience Ojai’s famous pink moments. You can hike the trails above Ojai, boat, eat or picnic at Lake Casitas. Travel to nearby Ventura to shop, fish the pier or take a deep sea fishing charter or Island charter to Whale watch or fish around the Channel Islands. Wineries, Farmers Markets, Craft Breweries, dispensaries and more are within 10 to 15 minutes of our site. Our location allows moments where you may see Hawks, Owls, Geese, Swallows, Robins, Bluebirds and more.

Vivian was very nice and accommodating during our stay. The views are excellent and plenty of space on the RV sites. Close to town and Lake Casitas so we will be staying on her property again.

The campsite at Vivian's ranch was great. Easy to pull my 16" travel trailer into and there were hookups for water and electricity! The site was a decent ways away from the other campers so felt very quiet and private. Short drive to Ojai and Ventura! Will definitely be coming back

Vivian and David were very nice! Campsites we’re full but it was still very quiet. We saw deer in the morning while sipping our coffee. Our dog is a fluffy one and his fur is like Velcro. There were a lot of sticker plants there this time of year. So he was a bit of a mess when we left. If your dog is short haired probably not a problem. Short drive to Lake Casitas and Ojai. Would definitely stay again.

We enjoyed staying on Vivian's ranch. The utilities worked well, the privacy was nice, and the views were so pretty. We had site #1 and loved it! Vivian is friendly and made you feel welcome. Nice basecamp for the Ojai and Ventura areas. Would recommend staying here.

Decent but stinky

Everything worked out fine for our stay. The hooks up worked well and the amenities were a plus. (Fire pit, wood, trash cans)
But, the compost/manure pile, 30 yards away from our site made a terrible smell (like overwhelming hot trash) when the wind kicked up. The flies it attracted to our area were really bad as well.
If we didn’t have to deal with the smell the entire time we were there, I would have gave a great review. Moving the pile across the 22 acre property would be a great move!

Hipcamper Vivian Lee
Response from Vivian Lee, the Host, on April 21st, 2022

Hi Josh, I am so sorry you had that smelly experience, That pile was dumped there by mistake while I was away and was to be moved ASAP after I saw it. Thus as you wisely noted it needed to go, or better (my plan) never be near the camp property at all. We have moved the pile but still I wish you had not had to suffer it at all. Wishing you the very best, always, Vivian
