Flambeau Correctional Center

The Flambeau Correctional Center (FCC) is located within the Flambeau River State Forest in Sawyer County. Its current operating capacity is 90 adult male inmates. FCC 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. Flambeau Correctional Camp opened in 1954 and was built to house minimum-security inmates. The inmates from the Camp were intended to supply a labor force that would assist with development of the newly created Flambeau River State Forest. In the 1960's, FCC’s focus was changed to the supervision of juvenile offenders. In 1980, FCC closed briefly before re-opening as a treatment center in 1981; however, in 1982, its focus returned to that of a work center for minimum-security male inmates.
