As you approach the base, the SS 192 curves to the right as you go up a small hill and the base is located on the left. After you enter the base and pass through the inspection area, turn right at the first road and follow that road straight as it curves around the perimeter of the base. Parking is available on the left side of the street in front of Building 318. The Navy College is located on the second floor of the community building, across from the public library.
