The Central Utah Correctional Facility (CUCF) is one of two prisons managed by the Utah Department of Corrections' Division of Institutional Operations. It is located in Gunnison, Utah in the central part of the state. The prison was completed in 1990 and has a capacity for 1,125 prisoners.

CUCF is composed of two main housing units: Henry and Boulder. Henry is broken up into four sections - Aspen, Birch, Cedar, and Dogwood (also called "SMU" for "Special Management Unit"). Boulder is divided into three buildings - Elm, Fir, and Gale. Aspen, Birch and Cedar house regular population inmates. Dogwood (SMU) is a short term housing unit intended for those in transport, those waiting to be moved into other sections, and those being punished. Elm houses some college students, but also contains "lock-down", or punishment, sections. Fir houses inmates who are either enrolled in or are waiting to begin the in-patient substance abuse treatment program "HOPE" (Helping Offenders Parole Effectively).

The prison is used to house up to maximum security types of inmates. Unlike the Utah State Prison located in Draper, CUCF is located in a rural part of the state, and thus more isolated from the main population centers of Utah. The prison is undergoing an expansion and is adding 192 beds to meet the growing needs of Utah's offender population.
