Camp Stanley began as a tent city in 1954. The first U.S. Army helicopters moved to the camp later that year and aviation units were stationed there until 2nd ID's relocation in August 2005.[1] Various 2nd ID units operated out of the camp from 1971 through 2005. The camp was home to both 2nd ID's Division Artillery and Aviation units until base realignment handed command of the installation to the 501st Corps Support Group.[2]


Camp Stanley is currently home to the following tenant units and groups: 532nd Military Intelligence Battation (Bravo Company), 61st Maintenance Company (194th CSSB), 560th Medical Company, Installation Management Command (IMCOM), 602nd Aviation Support Battalion (Support Team), MEDDAC-K Preventive Medicine & Industrial Hygiene, 23rd Chemical Battalion (2ID), 618th Dental Company, 629th Ambulance Company, 560th Medical Company (TMC), 55th Military Police Company, Numerous American Civilians, Korean National (KN), Korean Service Guards (KSG), and Korean Service Corps (KSC).

Warrior Reception Company (WRC) relocated to Camp Hovey in February 2012, as did the area Combined Issue Facility (CIF).

Camp Stanley provides logistical support to Area I through its 501st SBDE units. The camp maintains its helipads and a refueling station for helicopters in support of 2nd Infantry Division operations, USFK and ROK.

There is a HazMart (recycling and reutilization facility) on the camp.

Camp Stanley is slated to close by the end of 2017 with units leaving in June, in line with the ongoing draw-down and realignment of American forces in South Korea.[3] Units that are not inactivated will relocate North to Camp Casey, or South to Camp Humphreys or Daegu Garrison.
