Camp Joseph H. Pendleton
The United States Marine Corps holds a strong presence in Northern San Diego County with this military base. The 306-square miles of land was purchased by the federal government in 1942 and transformed into the largest Marine Corps amphibious training base. Self-guided tours are available during daylight hours with some of the sights including the Amphibious Vehicles Museum and Camp Del Mar (showcasing amphibious vehicles that have been used in actual combat). To enter the base, you are required to show photo identification, vehicle registration, and an automobile insurance card. Be prepared to show these pieces of identification at the main gate, then acquire brochures for self-guided tours.
I liked everything. My sis is a marine there and i've gone to visit her a few times. I'm going back, which is why I'm on this site lookin for stuff to do. I think it's really cool that it's like a town there, it's own town. The guys are respectful. It's a clean area, well taken care of. It has it's own beach, cool big trucks to look @. A lake where they try out new vehicles. I mean they have a ton of stuff I just dont know everything because it's so huge. I'm sure if you looked it up you could find more. Thanx.
