Seminole County, in east central Florida, is located between Daytona Beach and Orlando. The population, as of 2010, was 422,718. The county is bordered by the Wekiva River on the west and the St. Johns River and its lakes on the north and east. The total area is 345 square miles, with over 10% covered by water, mostly that of Lake Jesup in the north central part of the county. It is the third-smallest county in the state. Originally part of Orange County, Seminole County was created in 1913 and named for the Seminole people who occupied the area in the 1700s and early 1800s. Sometimes called “Orlando North”, the county relies heavily on tourism for its economy.
The county seat and largest city is Sanford. Although it is inland from the Atlantic Ocean, it is still an important port, lying on the St. Johns River system at Lake Monroe, at the head of the navigable section. Camp Monroe was established in this area in 1836 by the United States Army, during the second Seminole War.

The facility began the first hydroponics horticulture program of any jail in the U.S. in 1996. The program produces vegetables for inmate and staff meals.
Visitation at the jail is by appointment only. Appointments may be made through the website up to one week in advance, but at least 48 hours before the desired visit, and visitors must arrive at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled time.
