Camarillo has a population of and is runs parallell to the 101 freeway between Newbury Park and Oxnard It 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. Walnuts and citrus were also grown on the ranch. Adolfo bred Camarillo White Horses in the 1920s through the 1960s and his original home is now a landmark.
World War II brought about 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, are now the campus of California State University, Channel Islands.
Surrounded by agricultural lands the city is always working towards controlling development as it is one of the areas with the most open farm areas that could potentially be developed. It is home for the Strawberry Festival and the Green Festival.
Camarillo Springs at the bottom of the Conejo grade offers a public golf course and the private Spanish Hills Golf Club is located in the Las Posas/Spanish Hills area of Camarillo.
