Ft. Dix / McGuire AFB, New Jersey

The claim: Possible deportation point for detainees. Lots of pictures taken of detention compounds and posted on Internet, this camp is well-known. Facility is now complete and ready for occupancy.

What it really is: It's actually called the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, which was formed in October 1, 2009 as a result of a merger of the United States Air Force's McGuire Air Force Base, the United States Army's Fort Dix and the United States Navy's Naval Air Engineering Station Lakehurst.

Despite the claims of there being numerous photos of a prison camp there, I can't find any of them. In fact satellite photos of the base doesn't show anything at all that resembles a prison or a prison camp.

Edit: Fort Dix does have a Federal prison there, but it's minimum security, and it only holds 4250 prisoners.

Thanks to AutisticSkeptic for the info.
