Camarillo Real Estate & Community Information

Camarillo Real Estate & Community Information

Located in Ventura County in California is the city of Camarillo, home to over 65,000 residents.  Camarillo is named after two Californios, Adolfo and Juan Camarillo, who were California natives and preserved the city’s heritage after Anglo settlers, arrived. Adolfo was known for breeding Camarillo White Horses from the 1920’s to the 1960’s and was a regular in parades, dressed in his colorful Spanish attire.

The town began to grow more rapidly after WWII due to the construction of the Oxnard Air Field and the nearby Naval Air Station Point Mugu.  Camarillo resists more recent expansion of the city in order to preserve natural surroundings.
