Claybank is an unincorporated community in Goodhue Township, Goodhue County, Minnesota, United States.

The community is located near the junction of County 6 Boulevard and 350th Street. State Highway 58 (MN 58) is nearby. Nearby communities include Goodhue, Ryan, White Rock, Vasa, Belvidere Mills, and Hay Creek.

It was once a station on the former Chicago Great Western Railway between Red Wing and Rochester, Minnesota.[2] Rail spurs extended two miles to the east to clay pits, where clay was mined and shipped by rail to the stoneware industry of Red Wing.[3][4] A post office was established as Claybank in 1890, and remained in operation until 1904.[5]
