•••About Camp Scheideck

Since 1891, Camp Scheideck has been a remote retreat, where people from Los Angeles and Ventura County and beyond have gathered to enjoy the extraordinary beauty of Los Padres National Forest. An enclave of about 35 cabins and a wonderful old Lodge open on weekends and holidays, the camp is nestled in a green valley along the banks of Reyes Creek, a trout-stocked, year-round mountain stream, and looks up on Pine Mountain. It's warm in the summer (perfect wading weather) and cool in the winter (perfect curl up by the wood burning stove weather), and sometimes even gets a dusting of snow! Manzanitas, pines, sycamores, and cottonwoods mix with a beautiful array of wild flowers and wildlife.

There is a group picnic area, and the owners of the Camp (and land lease holders), Ozzie and Rhonda Osborn, have added a delightful little Western "town" in the common area; complete with gold mine, saloon, bank, jail, chapel, and even "Boot Hill," a little make believe cemetery.

Camp Scheideck abuts Reyes Creek campground, one of the prettiest camp grounds in Los Padres, and the trail head of the hiking/equestrian Reyes Creek Trail, which wanders up into the mountains into the Sespe Wilderness. Along the way, the trail merges into the Piedra Blanca National Recreation Trail and stops at the top of Pine Mountain, which is one of the few condor nesting areas in Southern California.

Camp Scheideck was first a part of the Reyes family ranch, and then was sold to Martin Scheideck. His family owned the property for several generations, and were important pioneers in the settling of Lockwood Valley.

Click here for a website by Jim Smith, former Lockwood Valley resident, with stories and great pictures of Camp Scheideck in the 1930's and '40's. Click here for a picture of the Lodge in the snow sometime in the 40's.

Now a mix of weekenders and year-round residents, Camp Scheideck offers a taste of what California was like half a century ago -- and is only about 90 minutes from LA and about an hour from Ojai on a spectacular stretch of Highway 33. You can hike, fish, hunt, bike, ride horses, or just enjoy the sounds of nature, without the long drive to the Sierras or Big Bear.
