Medfra is an unincorporated community located in the Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area in the U.S. state of Alaska.


Medfra is located on the north bank of the Kuskokwim River, about 50 km (31 mi) by air northwest of Nikolai.


Medfra may have been a small seasonal camp for Alaska Natives before the arrival of Europeans in Alaska. Early in the 20th century, a trading post and boat landing called "Berrys Landing" were established at Medfra. A post office was open from 1922 to 1955.
