About Camarillo

Camarillo is a thriving community of over 66,000 in the heart of Ventura County and offers an appealing mixture of rural and suburban lifestyles.  Located along U.S. Highway 101, Camarillo is midway between Los Angeles to the south, and Santa Barbara to the north. The business environment and quality of life are hard to beat in an area with some of the best climate anywhere.

Camarillo is named for Adolfo and Juan Camarillo, two of the few Californios (pre-1848 California natives of Hispanic ancestry) to preserve the city’s heritage after the arrival of Anglo settlers. The railroad coast route came through in 1898 and built a station here.

The city grew slowly prior to World War II but the war effort saw the construction of the Oxnard Army Air Field (later Oxnard Air Force Base in 1951, now Camarillo Airport) to the west of town. The community also grew as the new base along with nearby Naval Air Station Point Mugu and a

Seabee base at Port Hueneme brought many workers and their families to the area. The grounds of Camarillo State Hospital, which opened in 1936 south of town, is now the campus of California State University, Channel Islands.
