Best

We come back every year. One of the best places for tent camping and fishing. A lot of State and National Park Campgrounds close the gates after 10pm, not allowing cars to enter....

Worst

I called into the Lake Piru office and asked if they had a spot for that weekend, they said yes. You can only make a two night minimum stay. I stated we would be there around 9p i...

Piru is great 9/9/2009

We camp regulary at Piru. Great place to run away for the weekend and granddaughters love waking up to many deer grazing on the hills. about 1/2 of the sites have electric, only 5 or 6 full hookups. Good amount of shade. Bathrooms have showers but get really filthy on busy weekends because people dont know how to clean up after themselve. This happens in every campsite. Not much constructed things to do - just hiking, fishing, hanging out - but isn't that what camping is all about!!!! Pros: close, hookups, showers Cons: dusty and windy in the afternoons more

Our first visit camping at Lake Piru 5/5/2009

I called into the Lake Piru office and asked if they had a spot for that weekend, they said yes. You can only make a two night minimum stay. I stated we would be there around 9p if that was ok, oh yes we will save your spot, number 11. We get there, our kids are asleep in the van and we pull up to space 11 and there is someone there who was rude and said they were there for 3 days already. We did find another spot and prayed it wasn't reserved. I went to the office the next morning and all I got was opps sorry... The camping is very dry, dirty, no privacy and absolutely NOTHING for the kids to do. We rented a boat and went out on the lake, that was the only fun thing, didn't catch any fish. The swimming area was closed because the lake is very very low. Will not go back again. Pros: Marina employees were nice Cons: Reservation office lacks professionalism and follow through more

Great getaway for camping! 5/16/2005

We come back every year. One of the best places for tent camping and fishing. A lot of State and National Park Campgrounds close the gates after 10pm, not allowing cars to enter. Because Piru is private, you can leave and come back whenever you wish which is very convenient as Six Flags is only a half hour away. Great lake, good fishing and the staff has been very friendly. We had only one problem once with the boat rental shop (which is not owned or run by Lake Piru) but still the Park tried to accommodate us. A hint for the tent campers, if you are on the sites closer to the lake, make the short trip to the showers by the RV campsite, they are always much cleaner, warmer, and have better water pressure. Overall, one of the less crowded lakes around the area. Pros: friendly staff, open gates, clean Cons: Boat rental expensive, no campsites ON lake more
