William S. Key Correctional Center

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.
