Rose Valley Campground at an elevation of 3,450 feet is surrounded by chaparral covered mountains with pockets of Bigcone Douglas-Fir.  There are 9 campsites in Rose Valley Campground. They are located in a single loop. Tables, BBQ grills, and/or fire rings are provided in each campsite. There is one vault toilet in the campground and another across from the lake. Water is not available at this campground. You must bring your own water.

Points of InterestRose Valley Falls. This trail begins at the southwest area of the  campground. Follow it for a short 1/2 mile and be at the base of the falls. The cliffs at the falls are arkosic sandstone and crumble easily. Please do not climb around on steep sections or get close to the edge. Please park outside of the Rose Valley Campground. 

Close by is the Piedra Blanca Trailhead which is at the end of the  Rose Valley Road past the Ojai Valley Gun Club and the Middle Lion Campground. The trailhead is the gateway for the Sespe River Trail (22W04) and the Gene Marshall-Piedra Blanca National Recreation Trail (22W03).

Vegetation: Cottonwood trees provide shade for some of the camp-sites. You may notice a few small pine trees in the center of the campground. Other plants to see include toyon, chamise, and sage. Toyon is especially beautiful in the fall and winter with its bright red berries. If you like wildflowers, Rose Valley offers wild rose and poppies in the spring.
