FPC Yankton is a minimum-security federal prison for adult male inmates operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the United States Department of Justice. The prison is situated on the former campus of Yankton College, which operated until 1984; the site was converted to a prison (with no fences, razor wire of guard towers) in 1988. FPC Yankton is located 60 miles northwest of Sioux City, IA, and 85 miles southwest of Sioux Falls, SD.

Although the prison is considered one of the "cushiest prisons in America, FPC Yankton is a standalone facility with a staff that's not too tough on prisoners. White-collar inmates can take classes in accounting, business administration and business management. Yankton houses a Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP) but not a Unicorp facility. It also offers drug abuse programs, CHOICES (a drug awareness program), a Drug Abuse Education course, and the Non-Residential Drug Abuse Program (NR-DAP).

Some notable inmates include former Mormon Bishop Shawn Merriman and film director John McTiernan who was released in February 2014.
