This list of U.S. federal prisons lists many of the institutions managed by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons ("BOP"), a component of the U.S. Department of Justice ("DoJ").

The BOP divides facilities into various security levels ranging from ADX Maximum Security (Super Max), High, Medium, Low, Minimum, and Community Corrections Centers. Examples are the ADX facility in Florence, Colorado; High security such as Lewisburg and Atlanta, and numerous other lower level facilities throughout the United States. A list of all the various facilities within the BOP system is at http://bop.gov.

Although the more common BOP facilities mentioned in the media are the High and Medium, the minimum-security facilities, commonly referred to as Federal Prison Camps, are usually the most understood.

Federal prison camps are now more commonly referred to as Federal Prison Camps ("FPC") or Satellite Prison Camps ("SPC"). The FPC are usually stand alone facilities that are self-contained and, more often than not, found adjacent to a military or other government installation. The SPC is usually co-located with a higher security BOP facility (ADX-High) and is designed to provide the workforce to assist in maintaining the infrastructure of the entire facility - providing landscaping, repair services, and a host of other daily duties.

This is a list of U.S. federal prisons falling under the jurisdiction of the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). The list does not include military prisons, state prisons, jails, or prisons operated under contract to BOP by private companies or local governments.
