Default How are the visits at Fort Dix?

Can anyone quickly clarify how the visitation is at Fort Dix? My family member just got moved there and this would be his first visitation at a low security facility. Is there much difference from a medium? Can the inmates get up and walk around? Is there outside visiting? Assigned seating? Crowded? Etc. Any information would be helpful! Thank you

There is no assigned seating but once seated the inmate cannot get up to move around. They do have bathroom breaks at 10, noon, and 2 -ish. Approximately hourly they will give you the chance to leave but only when they decide to do it. There is no outside visiting. It can get pretty crowded on the weekends but it's not too bad on the week days. They have two joined rooms, one for regular visits and one for visiting SHU prisoners. If there is no SHU visiting that day (SHU only gets to visit on Thursdays) the overflow sits in the SHU side of the room. Don't bother to bring any $5 bills it's rare the machines will take them. The coffee from the machine is swill but at least it's hot. I've never visited in a medium facility but I've heard from others Ft. Dix is more restrictive not less. I don't know if that's true but it would not surprise me.
