Cooped Lake state Park is really two parks on opposite sides of the lake and both are awesome. Hiking, camping, cabins, fishing, swimming, ranger led activities and the wildlife! Perfect for a day, weekend or longer!

Cooper side is our favorite, it is small and cozy, lots of walking trails. Beautiful camping. Choose your site, on the water or in the woods. Great swimming beach.
