Welcome to Fort McCoy

Fort McCoy is located between Sparta and Tomah, Wisconsin, and was created in 1909 as an active United States Army installation. The fort covers 60,000 acres and is used as a military training center. Since its creation, the fort has been in almost constant use. In 1938, the United States began a major expansion at the camp which includes living quarters for troops. The expansion made room for 35,000 soldiers and was officially completed in August 1942. Camp McCoy was used as a training facility during World War II for many units across the United States. A prisoner of war camp was also established here during the war. The camp was used for training during the Korean conflict as well and went on to serve as a training center for the National Guard and Job Corps. The fort was named after Robert Bruce McCoy, a retired major general who first proposed the idea of a training ground and bought part of the property to get the idea under way.

Weather in the Fort McCoy area tends to be mild in the summer with temperatures in the 60s and extremely cold in the winter with the temperatures in the 10s. Annual rainfall in the area is 33 inches with the wettest month being August. July is the warmest month and January is the coldest. Local housing options are available nearby in cities such as Tomah, Sparta, and Oakdale. In the 1990s a second large construction project was undertaken at Fort McCoy and the fort serves as a Total Force Training Center today with over 100,000 members of the military trained at the fort annually. The headquarters of the NMCB-25 or Naval Construction Battalion Two-Five also calls Fort McCoy home. The battalion served a distinguished tour in Iraq and Afghanistan.
