Santa Paula Creek flows through this picturesque park that is surrounded by rolling hills, rugged mountain peaks, citrus groves and avocado groves. The natural beauty of the terrain coupled with large mature shade trees make this a popular location for picnics, creek side camping, hiking, biking, or wilderness exploring. Bird watchers enjoy woodpeckers, raptors, warblers, kingleys, and vireos. A large aviary in the park houses a variety of common birds and peafowl. The private campground north of Santa Paula Creek is leased to the Ventura Ranch KOA. Call 805-654-3951 for camping and Group Use Reservations at Steckel Park.
