The Federal Correctional Institution, Manchester Camp (FCI Manchester Satellite Prison Camp) is a minimum-security United States federal prison for male inmates in Kentucky. It is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the US Department of Justice. FCI Manchester is located in eastern Kentucky, approximately 75 miles south of Lexington.

Notable inmates - Christopher Dorsey aka BG cash money rap artist and Jeff Smith, then a Missouri state senator, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice and resigned his seat. Smith was sentenced to one year in federal prison and served eight months here. The business magazine Inc. published an article written by him on its website in which he described his experience at the prison: It was my first week in federal prison, and I was beginning to see that it was far more nuanced than the hotbed of sex, drugs, and violence depicted on television documentaries. It was teeming with ambitious, street-smart men, many who appear to have been very successful drug dealers on the outside, and some of whom possess business instincts as sharp as those of the CEOs who wined and dined me six months before.

Housing: Inmates are housed in two-person cells within the eight housing units. The camp houses inmates in dormitories within the four housing units.

Health Services: The FCI Manchester Camp Health Services Unit provides emergency and routine ambulatory health care services. The outpatient clinic provides diagnostic support sports services used by the healthcare providers in the provision of urgent and ambulatory care services. Included are the examination rooms, treatment rooms, medication room, dental clinic, radiology and laboratory areas, waiting areas, storage areas, and administrative offices. At the main facility, there are two rooms used for suicide watch and custodial purposes. Medical and dental sick call is also provided.

Psychology Services: FCI Manchester Camp provides screening, assessment, and treatment of mental health problems, individual and group counseling, psycho-educational classes, self-help and supportive services, and referrals to Health Services for medical treatment of mental illness. Every Psychology Services Department offers community mental health services. Many services are designed to help inmates manage depression, anxiety, and serious mental illness like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Inmates who already take medication often find that participating in a group helps with the symptoms that medication does not manage. Groups typically focus on topics like learning to manage emotions, stopping depressive thoughts, learning new communication skills, and wellness. Inmates who are identified as having mental health needs will have an appointment with a psychologist to discuss their needs and identify what types of groups and services would be most helpful. Psychology Services departments also offer groups for all inmates who want to learn skills that will help keep them out of prison and get along with others more effectively.
