Marine Corps Base Quantico is located off of Interstate 95 in Virginia, 36 miles south of Washington D.C. and 20 miles north of Fredericksburg, VA.

Proper identification, such as a state driver’s license, is required to get onto base. Vehicles may be subject to search.
The two airports closest to MCB Quantico are Dulles International, located in Centerville, Va., and Ronald Reagan Washington National, in Washington, D.C. Shuttle services are available from both.
