Ogdensburg Correctional Facility is a medium-security state prison for male prisoners, located in the northern part of St. Lawrence County, New York, United States. The prison is located in the northeast corner of Ogdensburg near the St. Lawrence River. The facility is also used as a Federal Immigration Detention Facility for Immigration Court matters heard in Ulster County, New York.

Nearby Riverview Correctional Facility is also a medium-security prison.

History and development[edit]

The prison operation took over the facilities of the former St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center (formerly, the Ogdensburg State Asylum for the Insane and the St. Lawrence State Hospital.) The structures were adapted for prison use in 1982. In addition, new housing units, built specifically for prison use, were completed in 1984.
