North Fork Correctional Center

North Fork Correctional Center is a medium-security prison for male inmates that is located outside of Sayre, Oklahoma. It is operated by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, but the facility is owned by CoreCivic.

NFCC was completed in 1998 and originally operated as a private prison run by then-Corrections Corporation of America (now CoreCivic) housing 1,440 inmates. CoreCivic expanded the Center in 2007 by 1080 beds. Many of its inmates were from the State of California.

The company closed the Center in 2015. ODOC re-opened it the following year as a state prison through a lease agreement. 

North Fork Correctional Center (NFCC) is located seven miles east of Sayre on State Highway 152. Today, NFCC is Oklahoma’s largest and most modern medium-security prison and home to nearly 2,200 male inmates.
