The inmates housed at Miramonte Conservation Camp #5 located at 49039 Orchard Dr in Miramonte, CA are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

Camp History - Miramonte is located just outside Sequoia National Forest at an elevation of about 3,000 feet. It is secluded in the oak-studded foothills 55 miles east of Fresno. Built in 1949, Miramonte has just celebrated its 60th year of providing fire protection and community services to the Fresno and Kings County area. During this period, Miramonte Camp has left a positive mark within the surrounding communities. This includes inmate built rock walls, stairs and water culverts dotted throughout the area and the memories of seeing inmates and the “red buses” working in the community.

Inmate Programs - Inmates assigned to Miramonte can avail themselves to over 400 hours of religious studies/training donated by local religious organizations. General Education Diplomas (GED) are available to prepare inmates for their eventual return to the community. Additionally, prior to parole, the inmate may obtain a California Identification Card or a California Driver’s License (renewals, duplicates or a written testing portion only).

Camp Products - Miramonte was originally designed to produce products within its Welding, Carpentry, Truck Auto Body and Paint Shops. Due to changes in these industries, all but the Welding and Carpentry shops have closed. These shops still produce basic welding projects, along with wooden cabinets and signs. In addition, the camp repairs many of the wooden and metal CAL Fire and US Forest Service signs in the area.

Community service projects - Miramonte’s four work crews average over 118,000 man-hours of Community Service Projects each year. Since all work performed is on Federal, State, Local Government and approved non-profit organizations properties, this translated into a taxpayer savings of over $950,000 (at minimum wage). Examples of these projects include work at: Millerton Lake (Bureau of Reclamation/California State Parks and Recreation); Pine Flat Lake (US Army Corps of Engineers); Highway 180 Litter Removal (Cal Trans); Hume Lake and various Campgrounds (US Forest Service); Friant Fish Hatchery (California Dept. Fish and Game); Fresno/King Unit Fire Stations (Cal Fire).

At Miramonte, over 60 inmates are also trained firefighters ready for immediate response to emergencies. Annually, these inmates typically participate in over 86,000 hours of fir fighting assignments. The efforts of this small group of CDCR inmate firefighters saved California taxpayers on average over $860,000 annually.

Combining Firefighting and Service Projects, Miramonte inmates provide annual potential savings of over 1.8 million dollars in labor costs.

Covid Visitation Information

All 35 CDCR prisons will offer limited video visiting starting this month to allow friends and family a way to safely connect with incarcerated people. In order to reduce noise levels in video visiting areas, effective immediately incarcerated people are authorized to bring their personal earphones/headphones to their scheduled visit. They will be required to disinfect them prior to connecting them to the computer. Staff will direct individuals when and where to connect. Institutions have also been instructed to ensure canteens are well-stocked with earphones for purchase.

If a reservation request is successful, confirmation emails will arrive with the subject line “Webex meeting invitation.” Please do not delete – this email contains a link to join the video visit and details on time and day of the confirmed visit. Please check your spam or junk folder in your email account if you don’t immediately see the confirmation in your inbox.

Please note: Incarcerated people in isolation or quarantine will not be able to participate in video visiting.

CDCR recognizes visiting is an important way to maintain family and community ties. At the same time, our first priority is the health and safety of those who live in and work in our facilities.

CDCR will now begin to offer real-time video visiting as a safe way for incarcerated people to see and speak with their loved ones. We have developed a virtual process in cooperation with California Correctional Health Care Services and the California Department of Public Health.

Under the new system, each inmate will have the opportunity for a free 30-minute video visit every 30 days. This includes holiday visits. Visits will take place on weekends and holidays. Most facilities will schedule their visits between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., but hours may vary.

Scheduling Video Visits

Prospective visitors must submit visiting requests directly to the institution where their loved one is housed, using the designated email addresses for each institution:

Only those individuals who have already been approved as a visitor may make an appointment. Step-by-step instructions can be found here. VPASS will no longer be used to schedule a visit.

Reservations will be taken weekly, beginning each Saturday at 8 a.m. through Monday at 8 a.m. for visits the following weekend. Please note, emails received outside the timeframe allowed will not be rolled over to the following weekend for review. Instead, a new request must be submitted during the following week reservation timeframe. Reservations are currently only available for the first five institutions. Not all reservations may be accepted because of space and equipment limitations.
