Installation Specific Information
Fort Irwin is located about 30 miles from Barstow, California and is a somewhat isolated assignment.
Whether you are departing or PCSing into Fort Irwin, you will find that having the proper paperwork and orders will take a lot of the hassle out of making the move. If you are inbound to Ft. Irwin you may want to consider the following:
If you are traveling with a family, make reservations at the Landmark Inn Hotel or another motel in Barstow prior to arrival. Note: If you have a pet the Landmark Inn Hotel does not allow pets.
If you take regular medications, bring at least a month's supply so a refill will not be immediately necessary.
Fort Irwin has several organizations that are dedicated to helping you have a smooth move and getting you settled into the community. Take time to learn the resources Fort Irwin has to offer, how to use those you need, and join those you are interested in. If you have questions that are not answered in here, contact the Army Community Service Relocation Readiness Program office inbound and outbound moves.
