I am also trying to get info on Moshannon Valley. All I know is that it is a privately run federal camp. My dad is in a private facility on the west coast and some say they are better than a federally run federal camp. I am looking for more specific information as my dad is looking to transfer to be closer to family. Info on recreation? educational programs? job opportunities? general vibe?

I have visited this facility few times and i agree to what was posted above, its always clean and as far as a visitor i have always had a good experience. Visitors area is very clean, during summer months they allow to go outside with visitors and seat on picnic tables and play games with little ones. You can work and go to school right in there and like anywhere ur in prison as long as u stay out of trouble you should b fine. My friends has been here for couple of years now and says its a good facility, he started out in PR and then got transferred to Florida and later to this one. Btw, there is no internet access like in other prisons, strictly mail only!! Hope it helps a little...my friend is coming out in April God willing...

My BF was there for almost 3 years he is a Canadian and on his way home on a treaty transfer. His experience there was not bad nor was it great he took advantage of the many run classes and he also taught the small engine repair class. Just before he left he was in the dog training program. I visited quite a few times over the year and will be happy to answer any questions anybody may have
