WHERE IS FORT CAMPBELL? Kentucky or Tennessee?
There is a lot of confusion on exactly where Fort Campbell is located.
About Fort Campbell
Welcome to Fort Campbell, Home of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). Fort Campbell lies on the Kentucky- Tennessee border between the towns of Hopkinsville, KY and Clarksville, TN, and is about 60 miles northwest of Nashville on I-24. Although nearly two-thirds of the 105,000 acres of post are actually in Tennessee, the post office is located in Kentucky, and the identification lies with that state.
Fort Campbell supports the 3rd largest military population in the Army and the 7th largest in the Department of Defense. Active duty officers-1,884; active duty enlisted- 20,511; family members-40,491; retirees-112,629; civilian employees-3,921; Army Reserve & National Guard- 18,166. At 164 square miles (105,068 Acres), the installation is one of the largest in the world.
Fort Campbell is a city within itself. There are more than 4,100 homes on the installation, providing housing for officers, enlisted soldiers, and their families. Fort Campbell has a large post exchange-commissary complex to facilitate shopping, seven dependent schools on-post, recreation accommodations for all seasons, and a new modern hospital for 24-hour medical service, child care facilities, numerous chapels, banks, restaurants, post exchanges, service stations, campgrounds, five swimming pools, and most other facilities a civilian city of that size would have.
The Fort itself was opened in 1942 and was named after William B. Campbell, a Tennessee statesman and Brigadier General of the United States Volunteers during the Civil War.
The 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles stationed at Fort Campbell are members of the only air assault division in the world, hence the designation 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). The designation indicates that the helicopter is the primary means of transportation for the division. Gone are the days of the helicopter as a taxi; tactics, logistics, and training are now all based upon the helicopter and soldiers forming a coordinated combat team. We're very proud of our role in the vanguard of this field.

Some confusion comes from the fact that Fort Campbell claims to be in Kentucky, but most of the Post is located in Tennessee. Even though 2/3 of the base is in Tennessee, it has its post office over the Kentucky state line. Thus it has a Kentucky mailing address. Most home locations are in the Clarksville, Tennessee area but there are also nice homes available in Hopkinsville or Oak Grove, Kentucky. You should leave your options open by working with a REALTOR that is licensed in both states.
