Fort Cooper State Park
About Fort Cooper State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
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.
Due to low lake water levels, our swimming area is currently closed and we are no longer renting paddle boats or canoes.
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.
