The Minnesota Correctional Facility-Willow River/Moose Lake has two locations.

The Moose Lake site is located at 1000 Lakeshore Drive, Moose Lake, Minnesota 55767, phone 218/485-5000, fax 218/485-5120. It is a level three, medium-security institution for adult males. The site is the former Moose Lake Regional Treatment Center. Conversion to a correctional facility began in 1988. The facility provides a variety of programming including vocational and academic education, sex offender programming, and industry. MINNCOR Industries encompass textile/garment manufacturing, signage, printing, and subcontract work. The facility’s current population is 1035 (3/1/04).

Willow River was the facility’s original site and is located at 86032 County Highway 61, Willow River, Minnesota 55795, phone 218/372-3101, fax 218/372-3090. It serves as phase 1 of the department’s CIP or Challenge Incarceration Program, a boot camp mandated by the 1992 Legislature that accepted its first squad in October 1992. Phase 1 is a six-month, intensive program for up to 90 non-dangerous male offenders. (CIP phase 1 female offenders are housed at Thistledew Camp). Programming components include education, critical thinking skills development, chemical dependency programming, and rigorous physical exercise. Phases 2 and 3, both supervised release phases, are at least six months in duration and served in the community.
