What a great find. Lovely peaceful park just two miles from downtown Inverness. Several wonderful trails go hiking. Saw deer and many birds up close. Not bust at all. In fact we were only ones in park this day prior to New Year's Eve. Park staff very friendly. Great place to get away, relax, and unwind. Beautiful scenic trails.

The park was lovely. Easy nature hike. Great views. Kids climbed tons of trees. Playground was perfect spot for small picnic lunch. Restrooms extremely clean. Found a geo cache by accident!

visited this park in the spring and were greeted by very friendly and informative staff. the park itself was just average, however. as an avid hiker i was looking forward to the hiking on the heavily wooded grounds. we found the trails poorly maintained and for lack of a better way to put it, uninteresting. nice park for a picnic...

We stopped by Fort Cooper in our quest to hit every state park in Florida. The park ranger was super friendly and informative and gave us lots of tidbits about the park, events, picnicking, campgrounds, trails, etc. I think we were actually the *only* people in the entire park (at least the parts we actually saw - and no other...

On our way across Florida, my wife and I decided to stop and eat lunch at Fort Cooper State Park. It was a beautiful day--hot, but not unbearable--but we were almost the only people at the site. The ranger at the entrance was very welcoming and helpful, and we parked as near to the fort location as possible. Be aware,... More

My husband and I rode our bikes here from the bike trail, and it is very relaxing, and if you're a nature lover, you will love Fort Cooper State Park! We saw a family of deer, lots of birds, and there is a small lake there. Bring your camera!

We decided to give this local park a try for the nature walk on 5/12/16. About 30 minutes into the walk my friend noticed a tick on her leg, which caused the other three of us to check ourselves, and we were COVERED! I'm talking up inside our clothes, in our shoes, on out arms, legs and I even found... More

Beautiful Florida scenery. Not a large park, its a nice place for an evening stroll, picnic, birthday party, etc. The reenactment in March is always enjoyable. At Christmas the special events are also nice.
