The Minnesota Correction Facility - Stillwater (MCF-STW) is a close custody (level 4) state prison for men in Minnesota, USA.

Built in 1914 and located in Bayport, Washington County, it houses 1300 inmates in 7 Different Living Areas. Additionally, approximately 100 inmates are housed in a nearby minimum security area. It replaced the original territorial prison located just to the north in the city of Stillwater, MN. Until recent expansion of the medium custody (level 3) facility in Faribault, MN, MCF-STW was the state's largest facility by inmate population. It was built in the "telephone pole" style, with a large main hallway connecting each of the units.

One of three Level 4 (Close) custody facilities in Minnesota. The prison is home to a prison industries program, education programs, and the Atlantis chemical dependency treatment program. A small number of inmates are selected for the facility's fine arts painting program.

The offenders housed in the minimum security area are responsible for the maintenance of the grounds surrounding the prison, and for cleaning office areas within the non-secured areas inside the main prison facility.

MCF-STW has recently undergone a number of modernization efforts, including the demolition of an antiquated medical building and construction of a modern segregation unit.

In 2008, three inmates attempted to tunnel their way out. Their plan was thwarted by the authorities.
