Mill Creek Correctional Facility (MCCF) was a minimum-security prison located five miles southeast of Salem on 2,089 acres. The facility was a minimum-security work camp providing AIC labor to the Oregon Department of Corrections, other state and local agencies, and private industries throughout the Willamette Valley.  

MCCF officially closed on June 30, 2021 as part of Governor Brown's sentencing reform efforts.

History[edit]

The Mill Creek facility was built on the site of the former Oregon State Training School, a reform school for boys.[1] In August 2014, an inmate escaped from the minimum security facility.[2]
