Ojai offers an enticing array of outdoor activities including golf, tennis, bicycling, camping, fishing, horseback riding, and hiking in Southern California.
The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy offers dozens of miles of trails for hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians, all centrally located near downtown. Nearby Los Padres National Forest presents opportunities for hiking, climbing, camping, fishing and swimming.
Home to The Ojai, the oldest amateur tennis event of its kind in the United States, Ojai was recently named one of the best tennis towns in the United States. Enjoy a match or two at the Libbey Park tennis courts.
With beautiful weather year-round, it is no surprise that we are a golfer’s paradise. Visitors can tee off at either of the two Ojai golf courses at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa or Soule Park Golf Course.
A trip to Ojai wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Lake Casitas, where boating, fishing, camping, kayaking, and picnicking are popular pastimes. Just three miles from the town’s center, Lake Casitas was the site of the 1984 Olympics’ canoeing and rowing events! Ojai Angler provides private guided fishing trips. While swimming is prohibited in the Lake, the Casitas Water Adventure features waterfalls, slides, a lagoon and lazy river for summer family fun.
