The married couple held Dugard captive for 18 years.
They pleaded guilty to charges of kidnapping and sexual assault in late April.
This month a judge sentenced Phillip Garrido to 431 years to life in prison. Nancy Garrido was sentenced to 36 years to life in prison.
Authorities received Phillip Garrido Thursday at California State Prison-Corcoran in Kings County.
Like Charles Manson, Garrido will be housed in a protective unit for inmates "whose safety would be endangered by general population placement," the corrections department said in a news release.
In addition to Manson, other Corcoran notable inmates include Phil Spector and John Albert Gardner, who was sentenced last year for the murders of San Diego teenagers, Amber Dubois and Chelsea King.
Nancy Garrido began serving her sentence Wednesday at Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla.
Phillip Garrido kidnapped 11-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard and kept her locked inside a room with an iron door and gate during her 18-years in captivity, which included sexual "runs," according to Grand Jury transcripts.
Dugard said that Garrido used a stun gun while his wife Nancy grabbed her off a South Lake Tahoe street as she walked to school on June 10, 1991.
"All the sudden his hand shoots out of the window and I'm shocked and I stumble back into the bushes... I feel my whole body is wouldn't work. It was tingly and I can't nothing works," she said in the transcripts.
Dugard said Nancy sat on top of her inside the car, and she heard a man's voice say "I can't believe we got away with it."
Dugard said Garrido carried a stun gun around with him and, during the first year, he would go on what Dugard called sexual runs or binges, which would last up to 3 days, about every other week.
Garrido, a convicted sex offender, admitted to Dugard that he had a "sex problem" and took her to prevent him from kidnapping someone else, the transcripts state.
He fathered two girls with Dugard and kept all three concealed in a squalid compound of tents and sheds behind his Northern California home, authorities say.
After about a year of captivity, Dugard said Garrido went away for about a month and Nancy took care of her, still locking her in the room.
They told her he went on vacation but in reality he went to prison.
The sex "runs" became less frequent and stopped when Dugard conceived her second daughter, the transcripts state.
Dugard and her children were rescued after Garrido aroused suspicions while proselytizing with the two girls on the University of California, Berkeley campus.
Dugard's family received a $20 million settlement in 2009 through a state victims' compensation fund.
The California inspector general found that state officials failed to properly supervise Garrido after his release from a 10-year prison term for a 1976 rape, overlooking a series of parole violations that should have led to his earlier capture.
