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!

    #4 Morro Hills

    Just bordering Camp Pendleton North is the Oceanside neighborhood of Morro Hills. When you and the furkid don’t have a lot of time to head to the beach, visit this neighborhood for a one-of-a-kind experience with Fido at the Beach House Winery. Unwind and destress as you sit back and relax with a glass of dry, aged Chardonnay in your hand and your pup’s fluffy head resting on your lap. Take in the wooftacular view overlooking the diverse terrains and coastline and let it wisp away your worries (let’s be real, that’s what the beverage is for). The staff is remarkably versed when it comes to wine and pooch smooches!

    #5 Pepper Tree Park

    Pepper Tree Park is a lively neighborhood in Fallsbrook city which lies just outside of Camp Pendleton North. The area is the pawfect place to take Fido for a hike (on leash). Any of the trails in the Fallbrook Land Conservancy Preserves will do, but you don’t want to miss out on the gorgeous mountain and ocean views from the summit of Monserate Mountain. The Monserate Mountain Trail is a 1.5 mile hike and is not for the light-hearted. It can get extremely hot during the summer, so it’s wise not to wait too long after sunrise to start climbing. Bring plenty of water to share with your pup!
