Description:

Valley View Camp is located up the Pratt Trail a few miles above Ojai.  While the camp is close in proximity to Ojai, it can feel like you're in a different continent once you arrive in camp.  The camp is visited mostly by dayhikers and doesn't see a lot of overnight traffic.  There is a fire ring at camp.
