Fort Cooper State Park

Fort Cooper State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This quiet, semi-primitive campground is nestled in a shady oak hammock. Two sites back up to Lake Holathlikaha, but are separated from it by a marsh. One mile from the campground is a central area with a playground. Here visitors enjoy swimming (when water levels are high enough) or fishing in the 160-acre lake.

The park rents canoes and paddleboats; private boats are not permitted. Occasional reenactments of 1836 Seminole War–era life are educational and superbly researched. There are 5 miles of self-guided hiking trails and the trailhead for the 46-mile Withlacoochee Trail, the longest paved rails-to-trails path in Florida."
