While Camp Pendleton functions as a Marine Corps base, there are activities open to civilians as well. The Camp Pendleton Paintball Park is one of those unique opportunities to visit the base and make lots of fun memories. Open to military and civilians, Paintball Park offers games for Paintball, Airsoft, and KidSplat to accommodate a variety of ages and gameplay.
Paintball Park has eight recreational fields and a four-field tournament park that spans over 30 acres at Camp Pendleton. Each field offers different settings and bunkers, from military helicopters, tanks, airplanes, and more for players to enjoy a variety of game scenarios and test their skills.
Paintball Park offers a variety of games and experiences to accommodate individuals and groups from ages 6 and up. Check out the available games below:
Paintball is an action-packed sport that is recommended for individuals who are at least 10 years old. Players use special paintball guns to tag opposing players with paintballs, which will burst on contact and mark players as eliminated for that round (paint is washable).
You’ll be covered in paint (and maybe a few bruises) by the end of the day, but it’s a thrill for an individual or groups. Walk-on play is available every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and private groups make awesome events for friends, churches, coworkers, or even family reunions.

Airsoft does not use paintballs, but instead uses tiny plastic BB’s that are less painful than paintballs and do not splat on impact. Airsoft is recommended for individuals who are at least 8 years old. With two large close-combat houses, a village marketplace, and real military vehicles, the Airsoft Park welcomes walk-ons Friday-Sunday and is also available for private parties throughout the week.
KidSplat games are recommended for kids who are 6-10 years old and are popular for birthday parties. Kids can expend energy running around in the astroturf arena, aiming at brightly-colored targets, and playing paintball-type games with their friends. Party areas are available for pizza and cake, too!
The equipment is half as powerful as paintball guns and the ammo is half the size of paintballs, eliminating the painful shots often associated with paintball. All of the ammo is 100% water soluble and machine washable. Party times are available seven days a week for groups of eight or more players, and all parties include a personal referee and party coordinator. Kids Splatmaster parties are also available for ages 8-11; using the same equipment as KidSplat, Splatmaster parties venture out into the paintball fields while the KidSplat parties stay in designated kids areas.
Excitement, athleticism, and fun! The Camp Pendleton Paintball Park offers it all for a one-of-a-kind experience in Oceanside CA. Whether you come as an individual or with a whole platoon, Paintball Park will soon have you on a team carrying out missions to try and defeat your opponents!
