            County Parks


            Notice!...

            Martin County Parks will be opening for both electric/water hookup camping and primitive camping starting on June 17th, 2020.

            Signs will be placed in the parks on cleaning and social distancing measures that should be followed while using the parks.

            Bathrooms and shelter houses are also open for day use.  Shelter houses cannot currently be reserved for larger group outings.

            Limit one unit per camping site.  NO GROUP CAMPING with multiple campers/tents sharing one site. This means if all designated camping sites are taken in a park, new campers must leave, they cannot share a spot already taken/paid for.

            Primitive camping that isn’t in a designated camping site needs to maintain a 50’ spacing between units.

            NO RESERVATIONS are accepted for camping sites.  All sites are first come first served and must be paid for upon arrival.



            Early Martin County was home to Native American Dakotah, Otoe and Iowa tribes as well as fur traders, soldiers, hunters and voyagers. In 1856 the first white settlers came to Martin County. The land on which our parks are located is rich with many stories and legends about these early peoples and how they lived and hunted.

            In 1971, with funds from the Land and Water Conservation fund of the U.S. Dept. of Interior, the State of Minnesota (the State Grant program) and Martin County, the county park system was put in place. The first four parks purchased were Perch Lake Park near Truman, Cedar Lake Park near Trimont, Bright Lake Park near Ceylon and Timberlane Park on South Silver and Iowa Lakes. Wolter Park was given to the county by the Holy Family Catholic Church.

            Initially these parks were to be developed and maintained by community and service groups close to the respective parks, with local plans complementary to the county park plan. The original federal, state and county money could only be used for land acquisition and not development. In 1975, concerns about vandalism and disrepair in the parks led to a park maintenance program and a county park board.

            There are over 230 acres of County park land in Martin County. Each park has its own unique characteristics. There are well-developed parks: Perch Lake Park and Cedar Hanson Park; small parks: Klessig Park and Wolter Park; and parks which are natural and primitive: Bright Lake Park and Timberlane Park. All of the parks are adjacent to a lake.

            Martin County invites you to visit our beautiful local parks. Whichever park you prefer, enjoy your visit and respect what the county maintains for all its residents.

            Other areas to use and enjoy in the county are the DNR Wildlife Management Areas (WMA). Many of these areas have never been plowed and also have not been used as pasture for many years. They have remnants of native prairies as part of their ecology. There is also oak savannah and calcareous fen in the county.

            "Take only pictures, leave only footprints."

            Follow all park rules posted at the parks.

            Camp site reservations are not accepted. All sites are on a first come first serve basis.

            Shelter houses can be reserved for special occasions by calling the Martin County Auditor/Treasurer’s office at (507) 238-3211.
