MCRD San Diego and Camp Matthews 1963

I keep reading about people talking about Camp Matthews. I am sending you a picture of the camp in 1963. Also a picture of MCRD San Diego. You still had to ride the ferry to Corondao. It was a lot more fun than the bridge.

  1. The mess hall and a couple of other buildings are now a part of the USC at San Diego campus in La Jolla. There is also a memorial there noting Camp Mathews was previously located there but good luck finding a place to park legally to walk over to view it or the buildings.
