Frank Woodfill Wildlife Refuge

Frank Woodfill Wildlife Refuge is one of the City’s hidden gems.  The park is located 1 mile south of Medford on the right side (west side) of Steele County Road 45 (Main Street).  If you are looking for a place to take a stroll, relax, enjoy nature, view wildlife and watch the Straight River flow by, then check out the park.  In addition, the park includes a landing for canoes and kayaks.
