Release Date: 2/17/2011

HQMC (MR) QUANTICO, VA – MCCS patrons can now find information about Recreational Lodging Facilities online at and can make reservations at  RV parks, cabins, cottages, cabanas, camp sites, and picnic areas located at Camp Pendleton’s San Onofre Beach, Del Mar Beach, and Lake O’Neill.
The new online reservation system is another MCCS customer service initiative. This new site is an outgrowth of the Temporary Lodging Facilities online reservation system ( which has been in operation since August 2010. Camp Pendleton is the first base to adopt the new online reservation system for Recreational Lodging Facilities. Other installations are reviewing how to incorporate the new site into their operations.
 “Reservations are just a click away” stated Siddhi Patel, Hospitality Specialist with the Morale, Welfare, Recreation and Business Operations Division, HQMC.
All you have to do to make a reservation is visit the website and choose the Recreational Lodging Facility at Camp Pendleton you want to stay in; input the dates of travel, number of people, purpose of visit, and status (active duty, retired, civilian). The reservation system will generate a listing of available room types with their picture, rate, and amenities. Select the room type, enter the required information, and click submit. A confirmation number will be provided and a confirmation message will be emailed to you. The online reservation system can also be used to modify, view, or cancel reservations.
MCCS Recreational Lodging Facilities offer quality, short-term accommodations for Active Duty, Retired Marines, Reservists, and DoD Civilian Employees. Patel added, “Due to the high demand of our Recreational Lodging Facilities advance reservations are highly recommended.” Lead time policies for online reservations at Camp Pendleton are as follows:

The online reservation website also lists all other MCCS Recreational Lodging Facilities worldwide, and provides points of contact for making reservations, and information on available services and amenities. The Inns of the Corps online reservation site ( is another great tool to find available lodging on base. Patel added. “We don’t want to turn anyone away and if there are no rooms available at our Recreational Lodging Facilities, there may be room at our Temporary Lodging Facilities. We want every experience for our Marines and their families to be a memorable one.”
