Travel Lejeune
Travel Plans: Camp Lejeune

The following is for informational purposes only. makes no warranties or guarantees of any kind with regard to any accomodation or information listed below.

Camp Lejeune and Surrounding Cities

    Some helpful links:
  • North Carolina Tourism Web Site or 1-800-Visit- NC
    This site is where you can find where to go, what to do, how to do it, and where to stay!

  • Camp Lejeune
    This USMC web site gives an idea about the base itself. The web site is more for someone who might be moving or settling on base but provides helpful information about vehicle registration, on base lodging, phone directories, and under "base services" you can find out about transportation.

  • Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce
    The official chamber of commerce web site.

  • Jacksonville NC City Home Page
    I'm not sure if this is the official city web site or not, but it's a very useful site and easy to navigate.

Entrance to Camp Lejeune
Upon arrival you will want to enter the Main Gate Entrance (don't forget to turn off your headlights). As you enter there is a driveway to the right, you must go here to obtain a pass for your vehicle. It only takes a few minutes as long as you have everything and they don't decide to search your car.

Everytime you enter the base you will go through a check point mainly make sure you have everyone buckled (as you always should), the driver's ID (and whoever has the military ID. Most the time they see your temporary pass on your windshield and make sure its not expired or anything and let you through but occasionally they will stop you. Watch your speed through the base, and follow the military rules while on the base. Proceed to your destination! My advice is if you don't have a military ID, make sure you are always with someone who does.

To get to Western Blvd or many of the hotels and other attractions from the base, you simply go straight (kind of over the bridge) and go through a few lights till you see

There are several choices for lodging; here are ones that I know from experience. Most hotels can be found close to the base. The Western Boulevard is, to me, a great focal point to the area with many hotels and restaurants around it.
