Federal Prison Camp Duluth


The Federal Prison Camp, Duluth (FPC Duluth) is a minimum-security institution in the heart of Duluth, Minnesota. This federal prison camp is located on the premises of what was once the Duluth Air Force Base near the southwestern tip of Lake Superior. Its location makes it roughly equidistant from Minneapolis–St. Paul and the Canada–United States border, thus becoming a central point of sorts.

Established in 1983, FPC Duluth has been a correctional facility for male offenders for nearly four decades. Its primary purpose is to ensure its inmates’ safe custody and well-being while preparing them for reintegration into society. The facility houses over 400 male offenders, providing various programs to aid their rehabilitation process.

One unique aspect of FPC Duluth is its partnership with puppy trainers. This initiative allows inmates to learn new skills, gain a sense of responsibility, and contribute positively to society. It’s a testament to FPC Duluth’s rehabilitation and community service commitment.

The prison camp is divided into the main facility and a satellite camp. The main facility is a low-security institution that houses most inmates, while the satellite camp is considered minimum security. Together, they accommodate around 617 inmates, according to recent statistics.

The Federal Prison Camp, Duluth (FPC Duluth) has a specific visitation schedule to facilitate connections between inmates and their families or loved ones. The general visiting hours are as follows:

  • Monday: 8:15 AM – 3:15 PM
  • Saturday: 8:15 AM – 3:15 PM
  • Sunday: 8:15 AM – 3:15 PM

In addition to these days, visits can also be conducted on federal holidays. However, it’s recommended that visitors book their visit online in advance.
