Camp Dunlap

Camp Dunlap – A U.S. Army Training Camp During World War II

In 1943, Camp Dunlap was a military encampment established by the U.S. Army to train troops. Shortly after the war ended the camp was shut down. However larger camps like Camp Roberts, the largest training camp in California, and Fort Ord remained in use after the war.

The military removed all of the buildings within the site of Camp Durlap, but they left all of the concrete floors there. Currently, the area there is known as “The Slabs” and as “Slab City”.
