The Mike Durfee State Prison is located on the campus of the former University of South Dakota at Springfield. The 1984 Legislature closed USD/S and authorized the Board of Charities and Corrections to establish the correctional facility. Springfield State Prison opened in December of 1984 when the female inmates from the Women's Correctional Facility in Yankton, SD were transferred to the new institution. Male inmates began transferring to the institution in January 1985.

The institution remained co-ed with both males and females located on the same campus for several years. With the opening of the Herm Solem Public Safety Center in Pierre, SD in November 1997, the women were transferred to the South Dakota Women's Prison within the Solem Public Safety Center, and the Springfield State Prison became an all-male institution for the first time. On September 10, 1999 the prison was renamed in honor of Mike Durfee, Deputy Director of the South Dakota Department of Corrections.

Literacy, Adult Basic Education and GED classes are offered. Vocational Education classes in Welding, Machine Tool, Auto Body, Business and Occupations, Landscape/Horticulture and Building/Custodial are also offered. Treatment programs are available for chemical dependents and sex offenders.

A minimum security unit under the supervision of Durfee State Prison is located at the Yankton Minimum Unit in Yankton, South Dakota.
