After attending the Spanish national training centre as a junior, Campillo elected to play college golf at Indiana University in the United States. Campillo would go on to become one of the most successful players in the university's history, winning nine intercollegiate titles and being named to the Golfweek First Team All-American squad. He also played in the Palmer Cup for Europe in 2007. Campillo turned professional on graduating in 2009 and began playing on invites to the European and Challenge Tours. He recorded top-10 finishes on both tours and ended the season 98th on the Challenge Tour standings. He played full-time on the Challenge Tour in 2010, improving to 87th in the standings and reaching the final stage of qualifying school, but his breakthrough year was 2011: Campillo recorded two runner-up finishes on the Challenge Tour on his way to ninth place in the rankings and promotion to the European Tour.
In February 2012 Campillo achieved his highest finish on the European Tour to date after finishing tied for second place in the Avantha Masters in New Delhi, India. He has also finished tied for second place in the Nelson Mandela Championship in December 2013 and in the Tshwane Open in March 2017.
