Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Area was built in 1943 for World War II Naval operations. After briefly operating as a prison following the war, it later became an Army base once again. Currently, the base is a sub-installation of Fort Hunter Liggett. It is home to National Guard soldiers, Army Reserve soldiers, the 1st Brigade of the 91st Division, and the 94 Naval Reserve Seabees. Training and combat preparedness is the main mission of the base.
