Best Prisons.

Forbes has compiled another list, this one of best places to go to prison:

The days of "Club Fed"--think golf courses and lobster bakes--are long gone. But minimum security facilities, known as federal prison camps, are the best suited for disgraced CEOs and other white-collar criminals. In theory, inmates in these camps show no risk of violence or escape. Both shoe-mogul Steven Madden and Martha Stewart are FPC alums.

Why are prison camps the way to go, if you must go at all? Among other perks, federal prison camps have a relatively low staff-to-inmate ratio, dormitory-style accommodations and little to no fencing. In fact, inmates could walk away from these camps. Few do, however, because recaptured inmates face severe consequences.

The one on the left is FCI Ashland in Kentucky:

Population: FCI 1,295; Camp: 331

Prisoner Perk: Inmates can partake in Ashland's "wellness" program, which focuses on nutrition, aerobic exercise and stress reduction.
