Ochee Yahola

Spring in the woods

Ochyee Yahola Park has camping, hiking trails and equestrian trails.


West of Northwood on Hwy 105 to Mallard Ave, turn north and go to 495th St (2.5 miles), turn left and the park entrance will be 100yards down the road on the right.


The park is mostly woods.  The timber is being managed for both wildlife and timber production.  There is a large glacial hill and a prairie pothole in the center of the park.  We have restored 23 acres of prairie but the diversity of plants is low.  This was done back when prairie restoration was in its infancy.

The park is open for archery hunting.  When we close the park in November, it is then open to gun hunting.

There are 4 campsites in the park with electricity, no water.  Fees are $10 per night.  Self registration.

An open shelter with a fire ring is available for use and maybe reserved for $10 by calling our office at 641-324-1524.

Operating Hours & Seasons

Open 6:30 AM to 9:30 PM.  Sesonally the park is open around April 15 and closes on November 1.
