About Our Site - Camp Douglas Officers' Club 

 

During World War II, Douglas had the primary prisoner of war (POW) camp for Wyoming. All other POW camps in Wyoming were satellite sites of Douglas. The camp was over a square mile in size, comprised of 180 buildings, which housed up to 2,000 Italian and 3,000 German POWs, and 500 army personnel from the spring of 1943 to the winter of 1946. At the time, the camp was larger than the town of Douglas. The only building standing today is the Officer's’ Club, which is now the Camp Douglas Officer’s Club State Historic Site.
