Both communities are excellent. As others have stated, Moorpark will typically give you more home for your dollar. However, Camarillo's Mission Oaks neighborhood is affordable for many young couples and has good proximity to services. I am partial to Moorpark. I live here and my husband and I raised our family here. Moorpark is the kind of place where kids still ride their bikes to school, have lemonaid stands and trick-or-treat in large packs. It was rated last year as the safest city in Ventura County. We have very low crime rates, great schools, more parks than developed areas, excellent shopping and the best 4th of July celebration around! (it's actually held on the 3rd of July). If you are looking for a "true" sense of community, Moorpark will not disappoint.
I am also happy to help you if you need an agent who knows all the ins and outs of our great City of Moorpark.
Thanks for your question.
