Eglin AFB, Florida

The claim: This base is over 30 miles long, from Pensacola to Hwy 331 in De Funiak Springs. High capacity facility, presently manned and populated with some prisoners.

What it really is: Eglin is a major Air Force base, it is not however over 30 miles long. It is infact only two miles long.

It once did host a prison camp, but it was minimum security, and it closed in 2006.


  1. Ok I work on Eglin. I'm not saying it is a fema camp, but the property is clearly bigger than 2m. Just the mainside base is about 8m from gate yo gate. The "reservation" is 1000s of acres. Idk where this info came from, but it is definitely wrong.

    1. I had only looked at the main part of the base, not the larger reservation. I just took a look at the larger area, and I still can't find anything that would look like a prison camp.
