~ Camarillo Grove Park 2016 ~
New Outdoor Nature Center, 6968 E. Camarillo Springs Road ~ (101 Freeway Exit - Camarillo Spring Rd.)
Camarillo Grove, a former stage coach stop and home to the oldest tree in the district, is nestled in a rustic setting near the base of the Conejo Grade at the end of Camarillo Springs Road. This park has five areas that can be rented for groups and events ranging from 50 to 350 people. It offers multiple options for hiking. The lower loop is an easier gently sloping trail with oak trees, sage, volcanic rock formations, and more.The upper loop is a moderate hike, over 1 mile in length, with an approximate 600 foot vertical differential. You will see both dry southern exposures and northern exposures with cactus species, monkey flower, sumac, and the ever endearing poison oak. This trail crosses two dry creek beds (wet season flow only) ending with a panoramic view of Pleasant Valley and the hills of Camarillo. This is a nice area for bird watching and identifying small animal tracks. While hiking at Camarillo Grove Park you may meet some of our local neighbors - coyotes, rabbits, birds, lizards, squirrels, snakes, and more. Saturday and Sunday dogs are allowed off-leash on the trails only until 10am.

It's in a beautiful setting near the entrance and is very comfortable! Right Judy?
