Directions to Waegell Field
Waegell Field is located southeast of Mather Field, near the corner of Sunrise Blvd. and Jackson Highway. From the Stockton area, it’s best to take Highway 99 north past Lodi and go northeast on Grant Line Road, just below the town of Elk Grove. Continue north on Grant Line Road until you cross an aqueduct then bear left at the signal light onto Sunrise Blvd. which heads due north. Cross Jackson Highway at the four-way signal lights. Count approximately 14 telephone poles from the corner on the right hand side. After that you will see a gate leading towards a sheep shed and pen. This is Waegell Field. Rev. 15.2 11-29-12
