The methyl­amino­propyl chain in the title compound, C13H21NO, adopts an extended zigzag conformation and the N atom shows a trigonal coordination. The N atom acts as hydrogen-bond acceptor to the hy­droxy group of an adjacent mol­ecule, generating a helical chain running along the b axis. The amino H atom is not involved in hydrogen bonding.
