CAMP PENDLETON, Calif --
The State of California has requested the Department of the Navy renew the current San Onofre State Park lease, which is set to expire on August 31, 2021. The Department of the Navy is carefully considering the state’s request and working cooperatively with the state on how to move forward.
To support this cooperation and future collaboration, Marine Corps Installations West-Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton supports a three-year extension of the current lease to give the Department of the Navy an opportunity to complete the work necessary to execute any succeeding lease, including updating existing surveys. The extension would extend the current lease until August 31, 2024.
Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton promotes the combat readiness of Marine Corps operating forces and other tenant commands by providing training opportunities, facilities, services, and support. A lease extension will balance the installation’s training mission requirements with the needs and desires of the local community for reasonable, non-interfering public access. Any subsequent lease renewal will be on terms that best serve the interests of the Marine Corps and public by conserving and protecting military training, outdoor recreation, and natural and cultural resources.
