Middle Raccoon River

The Redfield Dam is a lowhead dam spanning the Middle Raccoon River.  It is a popular place for human anglers during the summer and fall, while bald eagles frequent the area throughout the winter due to the open water conditions.

The Redfield Dam is located in an area of the river that designated as a Protected Waters Area and is part of the Water Trails program. As such it provides many opportunities for canoeists, kayakers, fisherman, hikers, birdwatchers and many other low impact activities.

Parking is plentiful at the Redfield Dam site, and a boat ramp provides access to the river.
Area businesses provide canoe/kayak rental and transportation.

Not far downstream from the dam is Hanging Rock park.
