Crossroads Correctional Facility is prison for men located in unincorporated Toole County, Montana just west of Shelby. The facility is privately operated by the Corrections Corporation of America.[1] It is the only private prison in the state.[2]

The facility houses detainees under contract with the Montana Department of Corrections[3] and the United States Marshals Service.[1] The facility opened in 1999 and is "multi-security".

Crossroads was the detention site for Montana medical marijuana provider Richard Flor, who died a few months into his five-year federal sentence, allegedly because of a lack of appropriate medical care.[4][5]

In December 2014, former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf was released from the facility on good behavior.[6]
