Camp Bonifas Tours

Camp Bonifas
Camp Bonifas is a Republic of Korea Army base located approximately 400 meters from the southern boundary of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separating North Korea and South Korea. Although security is tight, and certain clearances and rules need to be strictly adhered to, it is possible to explore the military camp as part of an organized tour.

Camp Bonifas is home to the United Nations Command Security Battalion for the Joint Security Area (JSA), who are responsible for enforcing the 1953 armistice agreement between the two countries. Previously known as Camp Kitty Hawk, the base was renamed Camp Bonifas in 1986, 10 years after JSA officer Captain Arthur G. Bonifas was murdered by North Korean guards in an event known as the ‘Axe Murder Incident.’ 1st Lt. Mark T. Barrett (posthumously promoted to Captain) was also killed in the attack.

While touring the site, visitors will notice that Camp Bonifas is home to a one-hole golf course. Being surrounded on three sides by unexploded minefields, this is quite rightly referred to as the most dangerous golf course in the world.

Practical Info

Visitors will need their passports to enter the base, and official clearance is required ahead of time as part of an organized tour. Upon entering Camp Bonifas, guests board designated military buses and are assigned a military guide.
