It is possible, but...

From the TDCJ Website, Rules and Regs for Visitation:

2.2 The offender shall be required to identify all individuals on the proposed Visitors List who are on parole, mandatory supervision or have discharged a sentence for which the individuals were incarcerated. Persons with a criminal record shall not automatically be precluded from visiting. The nature and extent of the criminal record and the time lapse since the criminal activity shall be taken into consideration.

Basically you have to request a visit and they will do some research and work out whether you pose a threat to prison safety or not. If they suspect you, then they have the right to refuse visitation. This is not day camp after all!
