Welcome to Our New Outdoor Nature Center
6968 E. Camarillo Springs Road (101 Freeway Exit - Camarillo Spring Rd.) Map
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.
This park 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.
This park is home to the Camarillo Grove Dog Park. This enclosed dog park features many shaded areas and doggie drinking fountains. This park is open daily from 7:30- am to dusk. The entire park is also an off leash park Monday - Friday only. Saturday and Sunday dogs are allowed off-leash only in the designated dog park area and on the trails until 10am. Please be considerate of others and do not allow your dog to be off-leash outside the designated times and locations.
During the July 2013 PVRPD Board Meeting it was voted to enact the parking fees for all of Camarillo Grove Park, including the use of the dog park and the off leash areas. Effective September 2013, everyone entering the park is subject to the current parking fees. This park is staffed with a parking attendant at various times throughout the week and on the weekends to collect parking fees. If the attendant is not present, we ask that you use the honor system and place your parking fee in the envelope, tear the tag from the ticket and display it in your window, and deposit the envelope into the container. View the updated fee schedule here. Thank you for your continued support of our dog parks.
