Facility Overview

William S. Key Correctional Center is approximately 13 miles north of Woodward and 1 mile east of Fort Supply. Named for former U.S. Army General, Oklahoma State Penitentiary Warden and prominent business-man William Shaffer Key, the minimum-security facility opened in 1988 and has a 1,105-inmate capacity.

The facility covers approximately 3,200 acres, which includes Agri- Services and the Fort Supply Historical Site.

The Oklahoma Historical Society occupies part of the east side of the facility. The prison is also the site of historic Fort Supply, where soldiers would stock up on provisions before heading west to fight the Southern Plains Indians.



Most inmates lack education, a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. WSKCC offers literacy courses as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas.

College courses (not provided through state funding) are also available to inmates who can pay for them, or those who have alternative funding or scholarships.

Substance Abuse Treatment

For those inmates who need substance abuse treatment, WSKCC teaches them ways to avoid relapse, while also helping develop cognitive, social, emotional and coping skills.




Criminal Thinking

WSKCC offers Thinking for a Change, Moral Reconation Therapy, and Associates 4 Success programs to address thinking, judgment errors, and relationships linked with criminal thinking/behavior.


WSKCC inmates can get job training through a CareerTech Skills Center, which trains
them for workforce entry after release. CareerTech also helps inmates find jobs after release.

Courses include Career Readiness, Commercial Framing and Construction; Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics for Warehouses; and Welding.

Visitation hours vary by each facility, but an inmate's security level dictates how many hours he or she may visit with approved visitors.

Important Note: All inmate visitors must submit a “Visitor Request Form." You can download a copy here, or request one from the facility. Background checks will be completed on everyone 18 or older. The inmate will notify you when the process is complete. The approval process takes approximately 8 weeks once the Visitor Request Form has been returned to WSKCC.

Days and Hours

Units will be allowed to visit on certain days as specified below:

Saturdays: “D” and "DN" Units
Sundays: “A”, "AW" and “C” Units





Visiting Level System

Level 1/SHU - 1 Hour

NOTE: Level 1/SHU visits are a 1-hour non-contact visit. The Level 1/SHU visits are coordinated through the Chief of Security, who will set the time frame and ensure proper supervision is available for the visit.

Level 2 - 4 hours
11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Level 3 - 6 hours
9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Level 4 - 8 hours
7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

State Holidays:

All inmates are allowed visitation on holidays. State-recognized holidays that fall on Monday through Friday are “free” visiting days. Which means while an inmates’ allowable number of hours for visiting still corresponds with their security level, holiday visitation will not count toward their total number of allowed visitation hours. If the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, visitation hours count on total visiting privilege level hours.

Special Visits

Special extended visits are allowed for staff-identified individuals who travel long distances, volunteers or team members who partner with ODOC in reentry services, attorney/clergy, etc. The facility's warden determines the length and conditions of all special visits. Special visits for ministers/religious leaders must be scheduled in advance through the Warden.

Requests for special visits must be made by the inmate using the appropriate request form and must be submitted by the inmate to unit staff at least two (2) weeks in advance so verification can be made. Exceptions to time frames may be considered in emergencies.

If the special visit is allowed on the inmate’s regular visiting day, the length of the visit will be determined by the inmate’s visiting privilege level criteria. If the special visit is during the work week, the length of the visit will be determined individually and not to exceed two hours. However, if the inmate is Level 1, special visits must adhere to non-contact policy.
