The prison was opened in December 2001 and is a multi-level facility used for Michigan Department of Corrections male prisoners 18 years of age and older. On-site facilities provide for food service, health care, facility maintenance, storage, and prison administration.[1]

The facility is surrounded by two fences with razor-ribbon wire,[2] and gun towers. Armed staff are also utilized to maintain perimeter security.[1]

Onsite medical care is supplemented by local medical facilities. The prison is an In-Reach Facility for the Michigan Prisoner Re-Entry Effort (MPRI).
