A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Harry Mitchell

There are plenty of activities at the park to enjoy such as a picnic and playground area and nearly 6.2 miles of hiking trails. We also have a pavilion and recreation hall available for rent.  

Fort Cooper State Park's nature trails offer some of Citrus County's best birding and wildlife viewing.

Pets are welcome in the park as long as they are on a leash no longer than 6-feet. They are permitted in the picnic area, hiking trails and playground but are not allowed on the beach area, in the water or in our primitive campground.

Upcoming Events:

Bluegrass Festival - April 19, 2014
