Camp Hovey is complete with all the modern amenities a base camp needs such as fitness centers, libraries, recreational facilities such as movie theater, billiard hall, ping pong, The other facilities were shared by Camp Hovey with the other larger units but the smaller installations have their own facilities that are of service to the military personnel and their dependent families inside the base. The Unites States Armed Forces ensures that the living conditions of those living at Camp Hovey will be acceptable and will likewise be comparable with their way of living from their country of origin.
