The Louisiana State Penitentiary (also known as Angola and "The Farm") is a prison in Louisiana operated by the Louisiana Department of Corrections. The prison is the largest maximum security prison in the United States with 5,000 inmates and 1,800 staff members. It is located on an 18,000 acre (73 kmĀ²) property that was previously the Angola and other plantations owned by Isaac Franklin in unincorporated West Feliciana Parish, close to the Mississippi border. Angola is surrounded on three sides by the Mississippi River.

Click on the image and zoom out to find out why they call this prison "The Farm." The Louisiana State Penetentiary is one of the nation's largest and most notorious correctional facilities. The grounds are surrounded on three sides by the Mississippi (which periodically floods the grounds) As you scan about the farm you will see that there are several more units than the main unit in the center. See this page http://www.corrections.state.la.us/lsp/photos.htm for ground imagery.

The maximum security unit (death row inmates and other high security risk inmates) is oddly located in the building directly adjacent to the main entrance gate into the complex.

The death house is at Camp F, along the road of the same name, just south of the border with Mississippi.

Note the size of the stadium facility. They take their football seriously at Angola...

The stadium's for the annual rodeo, actually.
