Prison is the first of the Phasmophobia medium maps that was ever introduced in the game. In order to unlock this map, you have to reach level 15 in the game. It is a dilapidated 2-storey building with unnervingly long hallways. The hallways are divided into parts with metal bars, which makes it even more eery-looking. It is a more open type of map which makes it harder to find hiding spots during a hunt as they are a good distance away. 

The whole map consists of various rooms including visitation rooms, an infirmary and two big prison blocks dedicated to jail cells. The whole layout is very nauseating and can get confusing at times because of being eerily similar. There are also many congested catwalks which act as a great barrier when in the middle of a Ghost hunt. The light switches for many rooms are located in other separate which can oftentimes be very scary when a Ghost is manipulating the lights. There are only a total of two or three escape routes on the whole map which makes it very difficult to get out alive.

Other rooms on the map include the reception building, a 2-storey cabin building next to a lake, a restroom building and the staff-only storage area.
