Camp Stoneman was a United States Army military facility located in Pittsburg, California. It served as a major staging area for the Army in World War II and the Korean War.

Camp Stoneman opened May 28, 1942, for the purpose of staging troops for the Pacific Theater of Operations. The camp was named after George Stoneman, a cavalry commander during the Civil War, and Governor of California. It was decommissioned as a military post in 1954.

The camp had a railroad track across the north side for receiving and shipping men. Next to this were many buildings with loading docks, many which were still there in 2017 along Bliss Avenue. There were seven barracks areas, each consisting of nine blocks (3 x 3) surrounding a mess hall. The Italian Service Unit of the 18th Italian Quartermaster Service Company worked at the camp.[1]
