Hi Michelle! My fiance is at Calhoun and gets out in 2 months. It's sooooo very far from Orlando that I haven't been able to visit him at all since he got there in January.

That place is in the middle of absolutely nowhere and I'm having a hard time trying to find a hotel room for the night prior to his release...and of course that morning .

Michelle I completely understand, My friend at Calhoun is an ex-boyfriend, whom I will always care for and he made some bad choices and he is serving Life In Prison with No Parole. I too am married (6yrs and 2 kids) and I secretly write my friend David and he writes me back thru my work address, thu I know I'll never see him again, he's still my dear friend.

Michelle I'll ask David if he knows Chris, I'll be sending out another letter by Monday we write weekly.

I don't have much infor. on Calhoun, never been there personally, I have an ex-boyfriend there that I have reminded friends with thru the years, but he's there for a looooooooooonnnggg time, no parole. His brother was shot by police (during their "advanture" crime) but my friend is paying the time - stupid Florida Rule.

I know you can send stamps to them in their letters but no nudey pics, LOL!!!

Hello, I'm Kathie and in New York. My best friend who is also my ex-boyfriend is in Calhoun. Not sure what dorm (sounds like he's in college) he's in but I know he said he was in the honor dorm (there we go again with college talk) and there is an A in the long series of stuff I have to put on the envelope. He has 2 and 1/2 -3 years to go.

Kathie

Default Calhoun Correction Institution

I've made my first visit to Calhoun CI in North Florida. I don't see anything on here about it, so will add what I can...located about 40 miles west of Tallahassee in the middle of nowhere. I spent hours on the internet looking for a namebrand hotel and there are NONE. Look in the yellow pages for Blountstown and you'll find one in town. It's old but is reasonably clean and well kept up. The owner is friendly and rates are very good. Just don't expect the Hilton. It's about 5 miles away from the prison and the next I could find was over 20 miles away. Mapquest said 6 hours from the Orlando area, but I made it in 4-5 without speeding (much). Visitation was approved in 3 weeks for me and my daughter. The mail is ok-they are fairly lenient in what they allow (extra paper, etc.) They treat the inmates okay-some mean, some nice. The food is okay and plenty of it. Visitation check in and out was okay. They use some kind of hand scanner that proves who you are. They have vending machines and a canteen open. Pictures are $2. Visiting is from 7:30 to 2 pm. central time. They have a small room with table, canteen and vending machines and outside with a covered pavillon with tables and a grassy area around it. No playground equipment. I was scared and nervous-didn't know what to expect. But it was not a bad experience at all. Hope this helps someone else out! Jane

Thanks for posting that. I will be making my first trip to see my bf in december. I am so nervous but feel a bit better since reading your post. Can you tell me the name and phone number for the motel, I need to make reservations and also need directions from New Port Richey to the prison. Any info will help. Pm me anytime.

I am planning to go see my husband with our 2 year as soon as I can get the minor block lifted and was wondering if there was anything to entertain my 2 year old? I know that there is no way that we can both entertain him for too long because well hes 2 and hes going to be normal. that is just about the only thing that I was worried about and also what is the dress code? My husbands been in calhoun since november but I cant see him yet because of stupid people. So Im glad that someone else on here has been there. Im going up there from lakeland.
