    Tucked away in a heavily wooded section in the southeast corner of the city of Muskegon, the Muskegon Correctional Facility began operations with two dormitory-style housing units. To increase capacity, housing units have been added since it opened.

    In 1983, Muskegon became the first Michigan prison to become accredited by the American Correctional Association's Commission on Accreditation. In 1986 it was the first to become re-accredited.


    Muskegon Correctional Facility provides a wide range of programs. Academic programs cover Adult Basic Education and General Education Development completion. Also offered is training programs in food preparation.

    Many programs are carried out with the help of a variety of Muskegon community groups. Volunteers, made up primarily of local clergy and lay people, assist the staff chaplain in providing religious instruction. 

    The Muskegon Correctional Facility was a pioneer in using a pre-release program, which was developed by a committee made up of prisoners and staff. Currently Substance Abuse Education and Thinking For a Change are provided.                                                                 

    The prison is surrounded by three fences with razor-ribbon wire, gun towers, armed patrols, cameras and electronic detection systems.
