Can anyone give me info on visitation at Edgefield. I plan on going in two weeks for a Saturday visit. I've already been approved. I'm coming from 4 1/2 hours away. I've read the info online just wondered if there is anything else I need to know before I go?? thanks in advance.

Make sure to take $25 in your bag and if you want sneak some money inside your bra if you don't think that the money in your bag is enough. You can wear heels and flats but no green clothing camouflage no bracelets and you can wear under wire but they will lead you to the back to check you. They aren't as strict with CEOs but you cannot move around. The guys must always be seated unless they are going to the bathroom or to the picture area. You will like it a little bit but just bring change of clothes and get there early.

Make sure you dress conservatively. Have seen ladies sent away because they dressed too provocatively. The had to go into town and buy cothes. Make sure you arrive almost on the dot as far as time. My first visit I showed up 30 minutes early and was told to leave the prison grounds until the proper time.

Default Amazon Books Returned

I sent my husband some Christian books and they were returned today. Don't know why. They came directly from Amazon, don't know why. Ordered for his birthday. Really upsets me.....

I have read where some prisons have blocked Amazon packages altogether. Another possible problem is that they shipped the books with FedEx or UPS, federal inmates are only allowed to receive anything that is delivered by the US Post Office.

My husband was hospitalized last week and returned to the facility. I have not heard from him for three days, either by phone or email. Does anyone know if Edgefield Camp is on lockdown?

I don't have an answer for you about the lockdown, sorry.

If he is housed anywhere other than in general population for his medical issues, he may not be able to use the phones or email. Write him a letter, which he should receive anyway.

Hi, I called the staff yesterday and today. While they couldn't confirm a lockdown, they told me they don't have access to phones or CorrLinks and there was no visitation this weekend, which points to a lockdown. They did tell me today that they can receive mail still, so I am going to send my dad a letter tomorrow in case this whole thing lasts for a while.

Default Info about the camp?

My brother is being transferred to the camp at Edgefield. I can't find much info about it other than it sounds like they go on lockdown all the time. Last post here is from a year ago. Can anyone tell me what the camp is like? Thanks.

The "All visiting at this facility has been suspended until further notice" banner is posted on the Edgefield web page which almost always means they are locked down.

Thanks Fbop!!! I read it already just wondering if the ladies had anything to add? Seems like a pretty quiet thread. Oh I was confused cause my friend said one of the guys said visiting on Friday was 1-8 which I thought was odd!

My son was sent to FCI Edgefield one week ago today. I received email from him for 3 days and then nothing else. I email and call the facility with no response. I'm just concerned because he is the only inmate from our state at this facility.

Hi Shelisha - I moved your post to our Edgefield specific forum so hopefully someone familiar with this facility will be able to offer some advice for you

Default Confused:why?

I was told my son was in disciplinary hold. Crazy he's the only one from our state in this unit and he had been there only 3 days when he was sent to disciplinary hold. I'm Confused, he has been doing so good and was talking about remaining that way for a couple of years so he can come back closer to home. This is truly hurting me. #confused. Just don't understand the reasoning!!!!
