Cooper Lake State Park Activities In August @ Cooper Lake State Park
Aug 3 – Aug 31 all-day

Sunrise Over Cooper Lake

Cool Off, Relax, Recreate, and Recharge at Cooper Lake State Park!

Cooper, TX— Cool off, Relax, Recreate, and Recharge at Cooper Lake State Park during the hottest month of the year! The lake is full, the swimming areas are waiting, the sand volleyball courts are prepared, playgrounds are ready, and our trails are open, too.
Across both park units this August, a total of 22 programs focused on family fun and learning about our natural world will be presented.

Our highlighted program topics for August are Night Hikes at the South Sulphur Unit, Astronomy – Stars and Meteors, Archery Classes, Dutch Oven Cooking, and Kayaking. Hike through the woods after dark and see what the nocturnal environment reveals to you with the help of a Park Ranger guiding your adventure. Experience the darkest skies so close to Dallas! Learn the original one-pot cowboy cooking style that is so easy and tasty! Just watch and learn with the help of experienced Dutch oven cooks or try the technique for yourself. Develop and improve your kayaking skills while touring nearshore parts of the lake on your adventure. Learn how to enjoy the sport of archery through two scheduled classes safely. Also, during the month, learn about a wide variety of fungi, plants, and animals familiar to Northeast Texas through multiple programs and so much more! All off the programs are free with a valid entrance permit.

Bring each fun and learning-packed Saturday to a fitting conclusion with your family and friends by relaxing at a picnic table watching your food cook on one of our many day-use picnic grills. If you are camping, relaxing around a campfire in the evening is unbeatable! The flickering light of a campfire will lift your spirits and reconnect you to feelings shared by past generations. There is no better place to share a story or eat a meal!

Fish from the bank, off our pier, fishing wall, or rent a kayak and try your luck along the shoreline. Fish attractors have been placed around the Doctor’s Creek floating fishing pier and the fishing wall at South Sulphur to help increase fishing success. Crappie, bluegill, bass, and catfish are commonly caught at both park units. Fishing licenses are not required if you are fishing from the bank or fishing pier at Cooper Lake State Park. Other popular activities are hiking our trails or just resting under a giant Post Oaktree or camping at one of our tree-canopied campsites. Park entrance fees are $5 for adults; kids 12 and under always free. Senior Texans 65 or older will only pay $3 to enter the park daily with a Bluebonnet Pass. Unlimited park entrances for you and everyone in your vehicle can be accomplished with the purchase of a Texas State Park Annual Pass for $70, which is suitable for over 12 months. Buy your pass and let your Texas adventure begin!
