Camp Kinser is a United States Marine Corps base in Okinawa, Japan. It is named for Sergeant Elbert L. Kinser, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for actions during the Battle of Okinawa during World War II. It is a major logistics base for Marine Corps Forces aboard Okinawa. Its flagship command is the 3rd Marine Logistics Group. It sits adjacent to the East China Sea in the city of Urasoe, and just a few kilometers away from Naha.

Camp Kinser is the most southern of nine Marine Corps bases on Okinawa which make up Marine Corps Base Camp Smedley D. Butler. Another military installation (Naha Port) is located south of Camp Kinser, but it belongs to the U.S. Army.

Camp Kinser is equipped with a DeCA Commissary, AAFES Shopette, and an AAFES PX, which also houses a food court with notable eateries such as Subway, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell. It is also equipped with a Bowling Alley, Enlisted Club, Fitness Center, and Mess Hall.
