Richfield is an agricultural community in the wide expanses of the Snake River Basin. Lava beds cover much of the surrounding country, but a swath of farmland exists around the town. The Little Wood River flows by just south of Richfield, and irrigation water is provided from the Big Wood River. The Sawtooth Mountains can be seen in the distance to the north.
The Union Pacific Railroad used to service Richfield, but its tracks fell into disuse and have been torn out. U.S. Highway 26 & 93 (a combined route) was built following the route of the railroad and still serves the town today. It leads west to Shoshone and east to Carey. The streets of Richfield are laid out in a grid aligned with the compass. The east-west streets are all named after Idaho counties. A network of rural roads extends into the farmland on the north.
The population of Richfield was 482 in the 2010 census. The elevation ranges from 4,280 to 4,340 feet, being a little bit higher on the north end of town.
