View Full Version : Gatesville-Sycamore Unit-Texas Prison

My daughter has just recently been sent to the Sycamore Unit at Gatesville, Texas location. Does anyone have any information regarding
visitation there? She says they are about to have a lockdown which may
last up to two weeks. Is visitation possible during this lockdown?

All of this is new to me, as we had just found out about visiting her at
Plane State. Now we have new rules to try to figure out regarding visits
at Gatesville. Anyone knowledgeable about this?

Many thanks.

Welcome to PTO and the Texas Forum!

There is no Sycamore Unit listed with TDCJ that I can find, but IF it is a TDCJ unit then USUALLY visitation is still held during a lockdown. You can always call the unit and ask before you visit.

There IS a Sycamore Unit in TDCJ but you won't find it listed on their website. It is one of five (5) units under the umbrella called the GATESVILLE UNIT. I know two (2) others are the Hackberry Unit and the Terrace Unit (where a friend of mine is doing time).

Sycamore is located directly adjacent to Lane Murray off of Hwy 36 in Gatesville.
