Construction on Camp Chaffee was started in September 1941, with troops arriving on the base in December 1941. In March 1956, the name of Camp Chaffee was officially changed to Fort Chaffee in recognition of the permanent nature of the base.

During the morning hours of January 29, 2008, a mixture of high winds and fire (which local authorities determined later an electrical brush fire) burned approximately 100 acres (0.40 km2) and damaged or destroyed 150 abandoned buildings at Fort Chaffee. Approximately 10:00 PM local time on the night of August 3, 2011, another fire broke out on the 90 acre former medical complex. This was, according to the National Weather Service, the hottest day in Fort Chaffee history at 115 degrees Fahrenheit. This fire destroyed the hospital complex and nearly 120 buildings in the area. The fire's cause was ruled accidental.
Fort Chaffee has been used as a set for various movies, including the movie A Soldier's Story in 1984, Biloxi Blues in 1988, and The Tuskegee Airmen in 1995.In 1958, Elvis Presley stopped at Fort Chaffee en route to his basic training at Fort Hood, Texas. It was here that the public information officer John J. Mawn told a news conference that Presley would receive the standard "G.I. haircut" and would resemble a "peeled onion". Mawn, thereafter stationed in Germany, was the technical advisor for Presley's film G.I. Blues. Arlie Metheny, another information office, also coordinated Presley's induction at Fort Chaffee.
