I can't answer your questions on Flambeau Correctional, and most likely you've already visited the DOC page but, just in case you haven't, here is that link:

I haven,t been to that correctional center. I have been in the area. This is pretty deep into the North Woods. A lot of cabins and vacation property around there. Dad used to hit the casino at Lac du Flambeau back when he was alive as my parents were the only people I knew who retired North, into Northern WI, instead of heading South.

be that as it may, there is a ton of snow, and it can get really, really cold. The mosquitos in the summer can be significant. There is a ton of wildlife, including the occasional moose or black bear. Most of the town in the area are really small, lots unincorporated. Warsaw is about as big as you get, and that is an actual city, though I guess you could wind up in Duluth. But if you need to find a place to stay, there are plenty of hotels, etc, that are in the off season right now, so pretty inexpensive, pretty empty.

Expect lots of birch and fir trees, tons of snow, lots of snowmobiles, snowmobile races, ice carving, etc. it is really a wonderful area of the country. The trail system is pretty robust for cross country skiing in winter or biking/walking/running in summer. Expect a lot of fish fries, perch and walleye, fresh from the lakes. Expect life to be pretty slow, and pretty friendly. But, like most of WI, there is a bar on every corner in every town, even the unincorporated.

I hope the correctional center has taken advantage of the back to nature isolation and calm of the area to encourage healing.
