Gear Rental/Outdoor Recreation

  • Outdoor Adventure CenterLooking 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!

    The Outdoor Adventure Center is located on Naval Base San Diego in the Admiral Robinson Recreation Center. The OAC is open to all authorized users - military personnel, their families, DoD civilians and sponsored guests. Stop in to rent the outdoor equipment and resource materials you need for your next outing. Rent surfboards, wetsuits, snorkel sets, boogie boards, kayaks, canoes, and more at the OAC.

    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.

    Working Parties

    If you have a large order, please bring your own working party. OAC staff, while happy to assist, may not load or unload your vehicle.
