Although Pittsfield Work Camp is a satellite facility of Jacksonville C.C. it is not located near the prison.  Pittsfield Camp is about 40 miles west of Jacksonville CC on I-72.  Their phone number is 1-217-285-2280.  If you plan on visiting Pittsfield, it would be best to call in advance to receive the particulars for this facility.

I take my 3 y/o 3 days a month.  He gets bored after about 2 hrs.  They have lego blocks, kids books, and some board games though.
