Lunga Park (Phase one) is opening on May 26!

Marine Corps Base Quantico and Marine Corps Community Services have been working tirelessly over the past several years to rebuild and reopen this facility for you and your family’s enjoyment.  We are very proud of what has been accomplished here at Lunga Park and will continue the efforts to restore selected areas in the future.  

Come and explore the newly built beach volleyball area, General Store & Boat House, playground area, grills for family and unit cookouts, boat dock, pavilions, and watercraft rentals. Onsite tent camping and rustic cabin rentals will be coming soon!  Pets are allowed but must remain on a leash. During the Adventure Day Grand Opening event June 3, only service dogs will be permitted. NO wading or swimming allowed at Lunga Park.
