The Main Compound was the central hub of operations at Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar. It was still under construction at the time of the Jurassic Park Incident and abandoned thereafter with the rest of the park.

It's derelict ruins were re-discovered by Zach and Gray Mitchell during the Jurassic World Incident. It is unknown how much, if any of the Main Compound survived the eruption of Mt. Sibo in 2018 during the Isla Nublar Crisis.
