Woodson Wilderness Challenge was once known as the Woodson Wilderness Challenge for Women. The Woodson Wilderness Challenge is a state prison located in Swannanoa, North Carolina. The Woodson Wilderness Challenge is across the street from the Central North Carolina Women’s Facility. The Woodson Wilderness Challenge is nearly 250 miles from Downtown Los Angeles.

The Woodson Wilderness Challenge opened its doors back in April of 1995. It was not until the following year, Swannanoa was given the right to undergo a non-contiguous annexation of Woodson Wilderness Challenge for Women.

In October of 1999, Ted Koppel interviewed many staff members that were employed at the Woodson Wilderness Challenge. These staff members include Dr. Anthony Didomenico, who was the chief medical officer in the facility. This was for a series of episodes of Nightline.

In October of 2000, the North Carolina state Legislative committee held a hearing on female inmates who had medical issues while in the facility. During the hearing, nearly 15 inmates described a handful of medical issues they experienced within the facility. However, the physician from the facility stated that the inmates were getting the best care possible while inside the facility.

It was not until April of 2007 when the facility was transferred out of the facility due to the women’s section of the facility closing.

The Woodson Wilderness Challenge is a medium-security state prison. The Woodson Wilderness Challenge also is home to Sensitive Needs Yard inmates. The Sensitive Needs Yard inmates can include inmates that are sex offenders as well.

The housing in the Woodson Wilderness Challenge is composed of open dormitories inside a perimeter fence with armed guards that walk the perimeter as well.

The Woodson Wilderness Challenge offers its inmates a variety of programs. These programs include, but not limited to self-help programs, workshops, outside volunteer groups, educational programs, and so much more. These programs are to help inmates to transition easier when they get released.
