About: Located on the northeast side of Cooper Lake, this cozy unit offers a variety of outdoor opportunities. Facilities consist of campsites with electric & water hook-ups, limited use cabins, and screened shelters. The park also has restrooms, 6.2 miles of shoreline, a beautiful sandy beach and a 1 mile nature trail with one of 2 playgrounds nearby. There is an ADA approved 3-lane boat ramp, a fish cleaning table, a sand volleyball court and an outdoor amphitheater. To facilitate groups a picnic pavilion (capacity 50) is available for rent. A 2-mile hike/bike trail is also available. Note: An entrance fee is charged in order to use the Tira boat ramp.

The park is nestled in a junction of the eastern extension of the Tall Grass Prairies and Post Oak Savannah. While the flora of the site has been altered by previous human land practices and some resultant soil depletion, some flora communities are relatively intact and others have shown remarkable recovery. A partial plant list includes Post Oak, Winged Elm, Bois d' Arc, Texas Honey Locust, Mesquite, Eastern Red Cedar, Toothache Tree, Eastern Persimmon, Mexican Wild Plum, and Hickory. A variety of mammals may be seen the parks including, Grey Fox, Bobcat, Opossum, Beaver, Raccoon, White-tail Deer, Nine-Banded Armadillo, and Eastern Cottontail.
