Default Best minimum security federal prisons in California?

For men? This is my list.

1) Atwater- Although they don`t have RPAP, I heard good things about the food. And they have a low population of under 150 inmates.

2) Terminal Island- Right next to the ocean. They have a full gym, Which includes a weight pile. I heard the food here is also pretty decent. Not much violence. They have RDAP.

3) Lompoc- Nice weather year around. RDAP. Over half the camp gets to leave the compound during the day to work. They have a full gym, with a weight pile.

4) Taft- Violence is very rare at this facility. The food suck, Because its privately owned. But they have a large selection of commissary. You get to use the phones anytime during the day.

I heard Herlong and Mendota suck. I would appreciate any additional input anyone could provide. I`ll be requesting to go to one of these facilities in the next month or two. Does Taft have RDAP? If you were going away, Which prison would you request?

Thanks for the info!

My husband will be SS come this November to camp at Lompoc. I haven't really found much info on here about the camp- well at least any current information (Unless I'm just looking in the wrong threads.)
