Camp Williams

Military Mission

The Camp Williams Training Site encompasses 20,904 acres located 26 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah and is split by Salt Lake and Utah counties. The mission of Camp Williams is to provide maneuver, live fire artillery, weapons qualification, and pre-mobilization training facilities to the Utah Army National Guard, the Army Reserves, and other military service units. Camp Williams also is home to the 640th Regiment Regional Training Institute that provides formal military training to commissioned and non-commissioned officers, enlisted soldiers, and trainees for 12 western states. Major tenants include the I Corps Artillery, A Company 141st Military Intelligence Battalion, the Joint Language Training Center, and the 1457th Engineer Training Battalion. Camp Williams also supports training for Utahbased law enforcement agencies and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations.

Joint Land Use Study Planning Process

Future residential development near the northern and southern boundaries of the installation is likely to have a negative impact on the training and pre-mobilization missions. Wildfires resulting from live fire exercises, as well as noise from aircraft coming to the installation from a nearby airfield, continue to be of concern to surrounding communities. In August 2008, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Installations and Housing) nominated Camp Williams for a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS). The entities taking part in the JLUS planning process include the cities of Eagle Mountain, Lehi, Saratoga Springs, Herriman, and Bluffdale; the counties of Salt Lake and Utah; the Utah Department of Transportation; the Utah National Guard; and representatives from Camp Williams. Each entity has a representative serving on a JLUS Policy Committee, which is responsible for managing the study process. The JLUS Policy Committee is proceeding through the JLUS process and anticipates completing the study by mid-year 2012.
