ODOC leased the Thunderbird Motel in 1970 as administrative offices. Later, it became the state's first community treatment center.
The Thunderbird Motel was also the first correctional property ever purchased by the state of Oklahoma under a lease/purchase agreement. The center was an all-male facility until 2000 when ODOC transferred its inmates to other community corrections centers, and the facility became the Mabel Bassett Minimum Unit for women.
In 2003, the agency moved Mabel Bassett Correctional Center, including the minimum unit, to a former private prison in McLoud, Oklahoma, and OKCCCC was vacant.
On May 9, 2003, a tornado severely damaged Clara Waters Community Corrections Center. ODOC reopened OKCCCC to house displaced male inmates. In July 2017, OKCCCC transitioned back to an all female facility.
Inmates can receive mail at any time. Include their name, DOC number and housing assignment if known in the address.

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