- It’s easy to find yourself sitting at home all weekend wishing you could hop on a plane or take a vacation. Ojai is the perfect option for a quick getaway. Just under two hours north of LA, and yes that’s with traffic, you feel like you’re in a completely different state.
Yellow wildflowers lining the highway and hot springs, swimming holes, and streams just a mile away from great restaurants and shops.

WHAT TO PACK?
One could argue that an Eno Hammock is a must for any camping trip, festival, or backyard kickback… but I’d say it’s an absolute necessity for Ojai. Perfect for the hot summer temps and super easy to hang up next to your private hot spring.
This Boom Bottle speaker by Scosche is sure to withstand any adventure. It’s waterproof and made for all your outdoor needs. Easy to clip onto your hammock for tunes all day.
WHERE TO STAY?
Whether you like to camp or prefer something a little less rugged, Ojai has endless options available.
Our buddy Josh over at Trailermade has perfected the Ojai experience. Check out trailermade.co for awesome options at a super reasonable price. You can sleep in one of his designated trailers, pick one up to take to a local camp site, or even scope the site for great spots to park and sleep.
I decided to car camp this time around. There was so much to see and do that car camping was the only way to guarantee I wouldn’t find myself rolling around in my tent all morning. Get up and go!
WHERE TO PLAY?
HWY 33 in the springtime looks straight out of a movie. Winding roads ending at various campsites.
The road just about ends at Rose Valley Campground. Providing that there’s enough water, head through the campsite trail to find this epic waterfall. Throughout the more green months of the year the pools are large enough to swim in.
