Oceanside Harbor, California

General Information

The Oceanside Harbor/Camp Pendleton Harbor complex is located north of the city of Oceanside and just south of Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, 35 miles north of San Diego, in San Diego County, California. The harbor's breakwater and south jetty form an entrance channel. The entrance channel splits to form the Oceanside Channel, which leads to a small craft harbor, and the Del Mar Channel, which leads to Camp Pendleton's Del Mar Boat Basin. Camp Pendleton is a large U.S. Marine Corps facility that dominates the surrounding area.
