Default Ojibway's visiting hours??

Hello: My son is at Kinross right now...(which is 5 hrs away) we were upset that he was taken to the U.P. but he just called and told us that he is going to Ojibway (which is 10 hrs away) why does the state do this? I cant believe that they dont have any place in the lower peninsula....anyway can anyone tell me what the visiting hrs are there? and my son has told me that I can order a care package for him from Michiganpackages.com. I guess I can order $85 worth of stuff? I tried getting on that site but when I put his # in or his name, then it says that he isnt in system or something. can anyone help me with this? thanks

I can't help with the hrs at Ojibway, but to order the packages u go through secure pack. I believe the website is accesssecurepak.com. U can google and find out for sure, but that is def the company. I also don't understand why our LO are being sent so far from home, we live in far SW mi and my bf was 9 hrs away at Marquette.

Visiting hours are M-F 2:30 - 8:30, Sat - Sun 9 AM - 7 PM. It really is in the middle of nowhere. I don't understand why Michigan thinks it is a good idea to put inmates so far from their families that they can't get regular visits. It is the opposite of all the recommendations for successful parole. And when Michigan needs every job we can get are we sending our inmates to places where the employees live in Wisconsin? Michiganpackages.com is the correct site. You can't order for him until he is at his final location at Ojibway. But you can look at the list. Go to the site and click the "shop now" button. Then on the menu bar across the top click the "downloadable order form". It will give you a printable list of what you can order. Remember, only one order per quarter for up to $85. I have heard of people who ordered $25 or so thinking they would order more the next month and it won't work because they can only get one order every 3 months. He will get the list too so he can tell you what he wants.

I just found out my husband is being sent here! Are they kidding me with this? Does anyone know how often or many times during the week we can visit them?

Thanks. My husband emailed me a list of hotels in the area... Lac Vieux Desert Casino seems to be the cheapest right now at $59/night on the weekends. Only 30 min from Ojibway. Since you have been up there FIRSTLADY, how are the visitng rooms? Are the CO's friendly to us? Are the visiting rooms usually busy? It's about a 10 hour drive for me... no much to see on the way up there is there lol ?!

Default Our son is in ojibway also

I was wondering if you've been up to visit your son and where you stayed. My family and I are going to sat 9/22 and don't know really where to stay. If you have any suggestions, would love the input. Very sorry to hear about your son. I feel your pain. Stay strong.

There is a place called Root Celler. They have a special until end of Nov. I think and its $35/ night or $50 normal. The casino is a decent place to stay. It is in the middle of no where I've been up there about 6 times already.
