Visiting Days/Times By Facility

 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTES:
-To allow for no less than a one-hour visit, visitors should arrive no less than TWO HOURS prior to closing of the visiting room.
 
-Vending Cards:  There is an initial fee, usually $2 with the remaining balance available on the card for vending machine purchases.  Fees and balances may vary from prison to prison.  Cards are reloadable for future visits.  The DOC is not responsible for lost or stolen cards.  Reimbursements may be made by contacting the vending company directly.  Please see notices posted in visiting area near the vending card machine for details.
 
-Children’s play areas are available at most, if not all, state prisons. The play rooms are for minor children, but the individual accompanying the child is responsible for the welfare and behavior of the child. Children should never be left unattended in a play area. Visitors are responsible for ensuring toys, games and videos are treated with care and are returned to their proper location. Some play rooms are designated for minors under a certain age only – check with the visiting room officer.
