The base is located on Interstate 40, 3 1/2 miles east of the city of Barstow. MCLB Barstow, is a vital link in the logistics complex that provides the weapons systems, equipment and special logistics essential to supporting the assigned missions of the Fleet Marine Forces.

To accomplish this, Barstow is positioned in a strategic geographical location.

It lies at the junction to three major highways systems of I-15, I-40, and Highway 58. I

t's the hub of all west coast rail traffic for the Burlington Northern/Santa Fe and the Union Pacific railroads. It's in the immediate proximity to the Daggett Airport, and the city is within 150 miles of the two major seaports of Los Angeles and San Diego.
