Lake Piru is located in Ventura County, California, in the Los Padres National Forest next to the Sespe Condor Sanctuary. From our foothill lake, you are less than an hour away from the uncrowded beaches of Ventura or Hollywood and Universal Studios, and only minutes away from shopping centers, theatres and fine restaurants.
We offer visitors excellent boating, trout and bass fishing, camping, water skiing, swimming and hiking. The day-use picnic area with individual and group sites includes covered eating areas with a wonderful view of the lake, a grassy lawn, grills, and an abundance of tables. Our group facility can accommodate up to 120 people and can be reserved for special events.
