Salinas Valley State Prison (SVSP) is a 300-acre (120 ha) Californian state prison located 5 miles north of Soledad, in Monterey County, California.

The prison consists of five facilities: A, B, C, D, and M. Of the five, Facility A houses Sensitive Needs Yard (SNY) inmates. The surrounding housing units hold level-4 and level-3 inmates, the two highest security rankings. M yard is a level-1 yard which houses, approximately, 200 inmates.

The prison had a gymnasium which, due to the prison's over-crowding, at one time had been converted into a dormitory but due to inmate population reductions was shut down around 2008.

The prison also houses a Department of Mental Health Intermediate Treatment Program (Salinas Valley Psychiatric Program) to accommodate the psychological needs of inmates.
