Naval Air Station Point Mugu is a former naval air station that operated between the years of 1942 to 2000. Merging with Port Hueneme and San Nicolas Island in 2000, Point Mugu is now part of Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC).
The area is a geographical gold mine for the military; open ocean, deep water ports, and sheltered islands with restricted air space. The Point Mugu portion of NBVC controls two runways and 36,000 square mile ocean test range. The test range gives the military the opportunity to test and monitor weapons systems without endangering civilian territories. The base is also used for warfare training.
Point Mugu, located in Ventura County, California, sits just off the Pacific Coast Highway, near the cities of Oxnard and Malibu. The area is known best for its beaches, which offer many activities such as surfing, cliff diving, and fishing. Point Mugu sits just on the western outskirts of the Santa Monica Mountains, which historically speaking offer more than 1,000 archeology sites of Native-American significance, dating back over 10,000 years.
Housing for Point Mugu is privatized, and available at both Point Mugu and Port Hueneme. 1,221 homes are available, and are managed by Lincoln Military Housing. Other resources offered at Point Mugu include a bowling alley, a coffee shop, and multiple restaurants. Additional resources can be found nearby at Port Huemene. Point Mugu even offers an auto hobby shop, where you can perform your own tune-ups, or even paint your car. More resources, including shopping and medical centers can be found in the nearby town of Oxnard. Veterans resources are scattered along the coast of Ventura County- the closest U.S. Veterans Affairs Department is located roughly 20 miles north in Ventura.
