Camp Pendleton is the West Coast’s main base for the U.S Marine Corps, located on the coast and north of Oceanside in California. If you’re stationed at Camp Pendleton with your family (and furry family), then you’re in luck. A-tten-tion! Camp Pendleton is split into Camp Pendleton North and South, and each end is nearby pawsome trails, parks, and eateries. There’s one veterinarian located in Camp Pendleton North and over 10+ animal hospitals in the surrounding coastal cities.
At first glance, Camp Pendleton might not appear so attractive to you and your pup. But actually, this 200 mile stretch of land is geographically diverse; offering you and your puppy pal undeveloped coastline, mountainous terrain and wetlands. Head to the coastline to dig into a burrito “the size of your forearm” at the ever-so-pawpular Ramone’s Mexican BBQ (spoiler alert: it’s a food truck!!)
If you’re just moving to Camp Pendleton, make sure to register your pup at the camp’s local animal shelter. All dogs (or kitties) must have a license within the first 30 days of adoption or of moving in with you.
There are plenty of surprises awaiting you and Fido at Camp Pendleton. Whether you’re here for a short visit or to stay a while, a good time will be had by all!
