Bare Hill Correctional Facility

Important Information:

  • The bus arrives back at the facility for pick up at 3:00 PM. Please keep this in mind during your visit as the Bare Hill visit seems to carry on longer than some of the other facilities. It is your responsibility to time yourself accordingly and be ready for pick up as there will be other REYN or SHYNE Family Members waiting for their pick up as well.
  • The hospitality house opens at 6:00 AM for registration and is equiped with bathrooms and lockers for your convenience.  No personal posessions are allowed past this point with the exception of your locker key and any money you wish to bring with you.
  • Visitors are required to pass through metal detectors. Women are advised to avoid wearing underwire bras or hair pins.


Bare Hill Correctional Facility, located by Franklin and Upstate Correctional Facility, is a medium security prison. The prison opened in 1988. Among the programs offered to the inmates is participation in social programs to aid residents of the region. Almost every prisoner has a work assignment, either within or outside the prison. All three prisons provide employment in an otherwise depressed economy.
