MCF-Oak Park Heights opened in 1982. With a population of up to 473, it has the highest custody level in the DOC system.

Most of the offenders housed here are classified as maximum custody or extreme risks to the public. However, the facility also contains a modern medical infirmary designed to handle transitional health care needs for offenders transferred from other facilities, as well as a mental health unit designed to assist offenders who have severe mental health needs. Offenders from other facilities are often transferred to MCF-Oak Park Heights to receive medical care.

Inmates participate in highly-structured programming including industry, education, and institutional housekeeping.

Oak Park Heights is the site of the consolidated offender canteen service, operated by MINNCOR Industries and servicing all department adult facilities.
