The DOCR has three separate prisons located in three different locations. The North Dakota State Penitentiary was established in Bismarck in 1885. The James River Correctional Center was opened in 1998 on the grounds of the State Hospital in Jamestown. The Missouri River Correctional Center located four miles southwest of Bismarck, was first established in the 1940's as the State Farm.

The North Dakota State Penitentiary, in Bismarck, is the original prison complex for the state and houses maximum to minimum custody men. James River Correctional Center, located in Jamestown, is designed to hold medium-security men. The Missouri River Correctional Center, in southwest Bismarck, houses minimum low and community custody men.
