Middle Lion Campground is a car-camp located at the end of the Rose Valley Rd off of Hwy 33. The camp has a handful of sites, each with a fire ring, table and nearby bathroom. Middle Lion is set along Lion Canyon Creek, which has year round water. It is also at the trailhead for the Lion Canyon Trail, which heads up-canyon towards Nordhoff Ridge. Great views of the Piedra Blanca formation and the Sespe wilderness highlight this camp. Great spot to camp.
Starting in 2016 the Forest Service has been closing Middle Lion during the winter months between December and March. Check with the Ojai Ranger District for details.
