Molalla Prairie is an unincorporated community, classified as a hamlet, of approximately 3,500 residents in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. The community is located south of Molalla.

In June 2009, 178 residents of the area signed petitions calling for a vote on forming a hamlet, hoping it would give the area more political clout on issues such as opposition to a natural gas pipeline through the area and agritourism.[1] In March 2010, residents within the boundaries of the proposed hamlet voted in favor of formation by a 75–60 vote.[2] On April 1, 2010, the hamlet came into existence after the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners approved the formation.[3]
