Gear Rental/Outdoor Recreation


  • Looking for adventure? We've got everything you need for your next outdoor activity! We rent everything from coolers to fishing boats and our shelves are stocked with information on all types of outdoor activities. Take a bike ride into the local mountains, climb some rocks in the Cleveland National Forest, or enjoy our beautiful coastal waters. We have all the gear you need for your outdoor adventure!

    Community Recreation Gear Rental is located on Naval Base San Diego in the Admiral Robinson Recreation Center. Smuggler's Beach Rentals is located inside The Clubhouse at Naval Base Point Loma, Main Base. Party Rentals is housed at Navy Medical Center San Diego. All three facilities are open to all authorized users - military personnel, their families, DoD civilians and sponsored guests. Rent the outdoor equipment and resource materials you need for your next outing - surfboards, wetsuits, snorkel sets, boogie boards, kayaks, canoes and more.

    Equipment is available for rent at daily and multiple-day rates. Reservations are permitted for some party rental equipment and some outdoor equipment; all other rentals are on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Equipment Check Out & Check In

    Please allow time for staff to check over the equipment with you at check in. Tents, watercraft, grills and large orders require extra time.
