California Men's Colony

California Men's Colony


San Luis Obispo, California (CA), US
This correctional facility, is located on the grounds of Camp San Luis Obispo, a National Guard training site. The 356-acre complex houses almost 7,000 inmates (with a designed capacity of 3,800), most in medium security facilities (security levels II and III). For years this was the largest correctional institution, in number of inmates, in the country, until it was surpassed by a prison in Soledad (85 miles to the north), which itself was surpassed by a new facility at Corcoran, in the Central Valley. It has been a prison since 1954.
