Camp James A. Garfield Joint Military Training Center is an Ohio Army National Guard training site located in Portage and Trumbull counties. The installation consists of about 21,000 acres, with various small arms weapons ranges and permanent facilities to support individual and collective training events for both weekend and annual training.

Major infrastructure improvements are turning Camp Garfield into a world-class training center for Army and other Department of Defense units in the Midwestern U.S. Among the recent improvements is a Fire and Movement Range, and the current construction of an Automated Record Fire Range. Camp Garfield also features TADSS, or Training Aids, Devices, Simulators and Simulations, state-of-the-art digital training equipment that allows for realistic combat training without the logistic challenges of live-fire ranges.

Formerly known as Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant (RVAAP), ammunition was produced for the U.S. military during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam conflict.
