Location: Fort Chaffee Maneuver Training Center is in northwest Arkansas just southwest of the city of Fort Smith, and Barling, AR.  The Fort Smith Regional Airport lies right at the northwest border of the reservation. The Arkansas River flows eastward along the northern border of the post with Interstate 40 to the north on the opposite side of the river.

Fort Chaffee Maneuver Training Center is an Army National Guard installation in western Arkansas, adjacent to the city of Fort Smith. Established as Camp Chaffee in 1941, renamed to Fort Chaffee in 1956, Fort Chaffee has served as a United States Army base, training camp, prisoner-of-war camp, and refugee camp. The base was closed following the 1995 Base Realignment and Closure Commission round. Since that time, the Arkansas National Guard has been using 66,000 acres as a training facility.
