Fodor's Expert Review Camp Carroll
Camp Carroll was one of nine U.S. artillery bases located along the DMZ. It was home to the 3rd Marine Regiment and the most powerful artillery used during the war. Many battles were fought here, but the biggest and bloodiest of all was the Easter Tet Offensive when the North Vietnamese stormed the camp and the firebase fell into enemy hands. The site was cleared shortly after the war and is now a pepper plantation. The only visible remains of Camp Carroll are a small concrete platform and a few overgrown trenches. The turn-off to Camp Carroll is 5 km west of Cam Lo, 24 km northeast of Dakrong Bridge, and 37 km east of the Khe Sanh bus station. The base is 3 km from Highway 9.
