Ventura Ranch KOA Campground Overview - Santa Paula, California


Nestled in the hills above Santa Paula California on the edge of the Topatopa Mountains this campground provides an excellent getaway from the city while still being a short drive to many area attractions and accessing the park is easy along well maintained paved roads.    


Here you will find gentle peacocks roaming This 77 acre park that offers 148 sites,  varying from primitive tent sites to luxury penthouse accommodations with spectacular views.  The park was very well maintained and landscaped and we found it a pleasure just to spend time in.  

RV sites are offered in 4 distinct areas with a few more remote options available.  Some full hookup sites are available and many are water and 50  Amp electric, however a complimentary pumpout is available for longer stays. 

Many tent sites are available through the campground and offer rustic accommodation in beautiful natural settings.  Restroom and showers are located in each of the tent sections and throughout the park and were clean and well maintained.  For those who don’t want to bring their own tent you could stay in one of the Tipi village tipis which offer comfortable beds and furniture.  If luxury is more your style, glamour tents are available as well offering the outdoor experience …along with  comfortable “glamping” amenities .  

Beautiful Cabins are also available in three different styles.  The studio cabin,  2 Bed 2 Bath models, and the Deluxe Model, all including a kitchen, private bath, and all your linens.

If you looking for a luxurious mountain getaway you might even consider one of their penthouse suites that sit atop the hill.  These beautiful tiny houses offer all the comforts of home. And spectacular views of the surrounding hillsides and citrus fields. 

Amenities at the park include complimentary Wifi though most sites, Propane filling station, Well stocked Campground store, Pool (open during summer months), Pavilion, Laundry, Dump station, Clubhouse available to reserve,  RV storage, and activities for the whole family every weekends.
