Gordon Correctional Center

Gordon Correctional Center (GCC) is located approximately 2 1/2 miles southeast of the Village of Gordon on County Road "G," in an annex of the Brule River State Forest. Its current operating capacity is 89 adult male inmates. GCC is part of the Wisconsin Correctional Center System, an "institution" comprised of 14 adult, male correctional centers overseen by a single warden whose office is centrally located in Madison. “Camp Gordon,” as GCC was first known, was built in 1932 and was initially used to relieve overcrowding at the Wisconsin State Prison located in Waupun. Gordon began as a forestry camp, where inmates worked in the forest and adjacent tree nursery operated by the Wisconsin Conservation Department. The inmates produced much of their own food on the facility’s farm and gardens. In 1962, the center became part of the Wisconsin Correctional Center System.
