Camp W. G. Williams, commonly known as Camp Williams, also known as Army Garrison Camp Williams, is a National Guard training site operated by the Utah National Guard.

The Utah Army National Guard traces its beginnings to the Utah Territorial Militia, known as the Nauvoo Legion. T

The militia served as guardians of the Central Overland Route, and in the Utah War, Black Hawk War and Walker War. During this period the legion’s various units had annual musters and training camps, with Lehi’s unit often doing so near the site of today’s Camp Williams. 

It is located south of Bluffdale, west of Lehi, and north of Saratoga Springs and Cedar Fort, approximately 25 miles south of Salt Lake City, straddling the border between Salt Lake County and Utah County in the western portion of the Traverse Mountains. 

It consists of 28,000 acres of training areas and has a billeting capacity of 2,800 troops. Camp Williams is the main training site for the UTNG, including artillery, engineers, academies & other units.

Training facilities include small arms weapons firing ranges, artillery firing points and maneuver areas. There are also many types of training available in the surrounding areas. This includes specialized winter, desert, mountain, and amphibious training. Most of this training can be conducted within a 50-mile radius. Camp Williams is also home to the 140th Regimental Regional Training Institute.
