Camarillo is a thriving bedroom community, just south of the Santa Clara River, in the heart of Ventura County in Southern California. This commuter town offers a taste of rural and suburban lifestyles. The U.S. Route 101, which is called the Ventura Freeway in this particular region, is the city's main thoroughfare. The city is named after Adolfo and Juan Camarillo, two of the few Californios, who lived here before the Anglo settlers arrived in the 1840s.
