The campus of California state university Cal State Channel Islands is nestled in the foothills of Camarillo. It’s a beautiful place, set aside from the nearby city and surrounded by rolling farmlands. It also used to be the Camarillo State Mental Hospital, and thousands of patients were “treated” there with inhumane shock treatments and worse.
A variety of ghosts and spirits haunt CSUCI to this day. Paranormal investigators and ghost hunters have long believed that concentrated populations of the mentally ill attract otherworldly entities.
The theory bears out at the former Camarillo State Mental Hospital. The place is crawling with the paranormal, and they make themselves known daily.
