While incarcerated, reading is often the best use of time. Please note that books and magazines, puzzles, and word searches ordered for inmates must come directly from the publisher. This policy ensures that the items are new, untampered, and comply with the facility's regulations. Prisons and jails enforce this rule to prevent the introduction of contraband or prohibited materials. By restricting orders to publishers, the facility can better maintain security and control over the content entering the institution. Any books or magazines not received directly from the publisher will be rejected and not delivered to the inmate. You may, however, send letters and selfies to inmates with this easy-to-use app, packages starting at only $8.00.

SCCC, established in 1988, stands as one of Alaska's most recent penal institutions. Initially designed as a Level III Maximum Security Facility, it was intended to accommodate 412 long-term inmates. However, due to the steady increase in the prisoner population, additional bunks have been added, resulting in a current population exceeding 500 prisoners. The facility adopts a decentralized campus layout, comprising three distinct housing units separated from the main administration and support complex by a vast recreation field. Essential services provided include medical care, education, library access, recreational activities, religious services, substance abuse treatment, mental health support, and food provision.

Nestled 125 miles south of Anchorage, Spring Creek CC overlooks Resurrection Bay from its location across Seward, Alaska. Spanning 328 acres, the site was generously provided by the Kenai Peninsula Borough and the City of Seward to accommodate the facility's construction.

Many members of the Spring Creek staff and their families actively participate in various community initiatives and organizations. These include contributions to the local library, hospital services, Polar Bear Club, Elks, American Legion, youth athletics, Year 2001 initiatives, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Amvets, Planning and Zoning committees, Emblem programs, Incident Command Systems, as well as involvement in Silver Salmon Derby events and programs.

Visiting Spring Creek Correctional
