Did you ever try to wait in line? I have a 4 year old and donít want to wait around all day and drive 4.5 hours to not be seen.

I totally agree...I have to set my alarm as I'm getting ready to leave for work so that I don't miss it. Here's how I've been able to make an appointment. Make sure that you set you preference for the earliest time possible (1st visit is at 9am) and be logged on at 7am, but don't wait a few seconds after the time changes to 7am and then click on "make new appointment". I've noticed that I can usually get the appointment I want for 1 day, but the second day I get a later appointment like 11 or 12...by the time you make the first one and then go back and make the second one...they go really quick.

Also, keep checking back during the week because some people are courteous enough to cancel if they know they aren't going which will allow someone else to make an appointment. I just made an appointment for 6/9 at 12pm...I was surprised it was available, but I'll take a3-hour visit

Hope this was helpful

Sooooo I went to visit my husband today - for the second time at CSP Lancaster with NO appointment. Ladies I strongly advise you NEVER to do this unless you are in line at 5am and are one of the first 10 non-appointments. I waited from 10am until 1:45pm to see if I could get a visit. They call me up to the counter at 1:45pm and tell that he's non contact because he just got there on Friday and hasn't seen his counselor and yet I visited him on Saturday -they said I shouldn't have been able to visit,but slipped through the cracks.

When you don't have an appointment, they make you go to the Friends Outside trailer and wait and they call 10 non-appointments at a time. When they are ready, they call and the lady lets us know and then we walk over. So instead of telling me when I come in with the last group of non-appointments, the let me sit there for 20 minutes, then call me up and tell me he's NON-CONTACT Like wow, really. My husband just got there and already I hate this place. Their house, their rules...I get it. I'm just irritated that I wasted and entire day. I could have stayed home, saved gas, time, and money. Thank God my drive is only 1 1/2 hours. I would have been cool with an hour visit - as I said, hubby just got there Friday and hasn't been to the store or anything and I was basically coming to feed him, say wassup, and bounce.

Question Visiting

I have tried all morning to call to make a visiting appointment. The info at the CAS-LAC prison site gives a number and extension and that it is available Thursday - Friday 7-9 AM. What I get is the runaround by voice mail. I call the number, and enter the extension then I get a message, "to access your mailbox ..."The next time that I call the main number I get, "to access your mailbox....." without asking me to enter the extension. Then the next time, I get, "dial 1 for English, dial 1 for visiting..." once in a while when I dial the 1 for visiting no one picks up and then I get, "no connection..." or some thing to that effect.

This has been going round and round for an since 7AM, what is going on? Has the number changed? I can't get through. Is Vpass the only way now?
