Camarillo (pronounced /ˌkæməˈriːoʊ/) is a city in Ventura County, California, United States. The population was 57,084 at the 2000 census. The April 2010, California Department of Finance estimates the population at 66,690.[2] The Ventura Freeway (U.S. Route 101) is the city's primary thoroughfare.

Camarillo is named for Adolfo and Juan Camarillo, two of the few Californios (pre-1851 California natives of Spanish ancestry) to preserve the city's heritage after the arrival of Anglo settlers. As with most cities in Ventura County, it is noted for its resistance to new development. Some of the most desirable land in the city limits, located on the north and south sides of the Ventura Freeway, is "permanently" zoned for agricultural use. The construction in these zones show the progress made towards erosion of this permanence. It is home to the Ventura County, California Sheriff's Department Academy, as well as the department's other assets; such as the VCSD Air Unit, SWAT Unit, Bomb Squad, and Reserve Officer Academy.
