Does anyone have any information about Illinois River. My friend is getting ready to put in a transfer and was wondering what Illinois River is like. I have read the site at IDOC but does anyone know any specific stuff. Where he is at now they are in their cells about 23 hours a day. Does IL River have more movement, do they have day rooms, weight rooms, any good drug rehab programs? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If you go to Canton, you can also stay at the Super 8. Thatís where I stay when I go and see Froggy. There isnít much to the town, there is no down town at all, fast food restaurants and a country club and thatís it.
Its a ghost town, wow. Be prepared

I believe they have a bus service that comes from Chicago to Canton as well, if you guys need the number I can try and get it for you. Let me know.

My man is in there and I will be seeing him for the first time in the summer. I dont have a driver's license or any of that.
Question is: As two forms of id. would my "consular ID card (matricula)" and a school id work?
The matricula is issued by the mexican gov't and has my kentucky address where i currently live, DOB, etc.
on the other hand, the second id is my school id its from 2003 and only has my name and the school i went to...
If there are any other of forms of id that you have in mind that i can use let me know. Also any helpful information about first time visits please feel free to tell me.
THANKS A LOT!!!

Yes IL River has a day room, weight room, a nice gym, very good drug and rehab program and I believe they get out of their cells to go outside at least twice a day...morning and evening. It's a very nice place considering it's a prison. Hope this helps.

Where on earth were u at because Canton is definately NOT a ghost town...they have several fast food restaurants....a movie theater...bowling alley...WalMart....KMart.....Mexican restaurant...2 Chinese restaurants and an Asian Buffet....Big Creek Park...Lakeland park. And many other things to do.

Froggy's post was made back in 2003, so a lot has changed in 7 years.

Theresa, thank you for this post, seems I only hear negatives about IRCC.
Sounds better then I thought, thank goodness. My guy is there, have not touched him since July and first visit will be next week. He got there Oct 5, I guess my question is can I touch him, kiss him? How long are visits, I will go on a weekday, can I bring a cooler in my car for my ride to and from, it will be 3plus hours one way...thanks for any help you can give me, Donna
