Those of us who continued to camp in 2018 after the County of Ventura took over management found it still a very worthwhile experience. We braved the temporary lack of showers and the changes to our schedule due to park quiet hours requirements. We spoke with rangers and the camp hosts and have been assured that the showers will be ready for use by the time we’re back in April.  They have not made us shut down the music at 9 p.m., and we have continued to play quietly even though others share the campground with us.  So far, so good!

We also learned that Ventura County parks budget is based only on the parks’ and campgrounds’ income. They do not receive county, state or federal funds. So let’s be as happy as possible about sharing our lovely spot with new people…they’ll be helping keep the lights on.  You know, when the lights actually work!

Thanks to everyone who camped in 2018 and to those of you who are making plans for 2019!  Onward!
