The Paintball Park at Quantico is located on a Marine Installation and there are some new procedures on how to gain access to come play at the Paintball Park! The “frequent Paintball Park patrons” category exists to allow the general public to use select recreational activities, per Marine Corps orders.

You also acknowledge and understand that your access is limited to transit to and from The Paintball Park and you will exit the installation when your usage of the activity has concluded. You also understand and acknowledge that requesting access to the installation may require a security screening to include a criminal background check, digital fingerprint scan, photograph, and any other requirements deemed necessary by the Provost Marshalls Office.

There Are 3 Ways to Gain Base Access!

1. Military With Base Access

  • The Trusted Traveler procedure allows a uniformed service member or government employee with a valid Common Access Card (CAC), a military retiree (with a valid DOD identification card), or an adult family member (with a valid DOD identification card) to present their identification card for verification while simultaneously vouching for any vehicle occupants.
  • On MCB QUANTICO, Trusted Travelers are also permitted to vouch for/sponsor the occupants of two additional vehicles in immediate succession. Members identified as Trusted Travelers are responsible for the actions of all visitors for whom they vouch and must accompany their visitors at all times while aboard MCB QUANTICO.
  • Adult escorted visitors must be in possession of an acceptable identity source document such as a valid government issued photo id (i.e. Real ID Act compliant [or state approved extension] driver’s license, state identification card, or passport) to establish their identity.
