Looking for a Camp Lejeune hotel? The Baymont Inn Jacksonville, NC hotel is just 5 miles from Camp Lejeune and the perfect place for you to stay when visiting your relatives on base or welcoming home our troops!
Home of the “Expeditionary Forces in Rediness” Camp Lejeune’s first division was set up in 1941. What started as temporary tents and a farm house has grown into a huge military training facility. Currently just under 250 square miles, this base started at the time of World War II. The government wanted to fill the need for an eastern US amphibious training facility and Camp Lejeune was the answer.
Since its inception, Camp Lejeune has been training its Marines and Sailors for not only wars, but also peacekeeping missions and evacuation operations. The base itself is home to not only active duty military, but also home to retirees and civilians.
A population of over 150,000 people, Camp Lejeune provides many services for its citizens. Education is a part of their culture, as well as family support options and fitness centers. Being educated and staying physically fit are a large part of staying healthy and strong. When not deployed, some Marines & Sailors enjoy hunting and fishing with their friends and family. Others enjoy shopping or visiting the local library. Many take advantage of the beach, catch a movie at the local theater or choose to dine out.
All of these great opportunities make Camp Lejeune a nice place for military families to reside. And the skills and lessons they learn while training at Camp Lejeune make the US a safer place for everyone else to live.
