Timm Park, is located just off of County Road 18, three miles north of the City of Wood Lake or seven miles south of Granite Falls.  This popular park is located off the north shore of Wood Lake.  It offers a recently developed campground with water and 110 volt electrical service to each site, a picnic shelter, swimming area, playground, volleyball, basketball, boat ramp and dock.  Fishing includes crappies, bullheads, and walleyes.  Camping fees are $27/night for campers and $15/night for tents.  Fees are required for each night the camper or tent is left in place at the park.  All camping must be paid for in advance before campers will be allowed to park in a spot, and before a reservation will be accepted.
