Cooper Lake State Park

Nature

The park is nestled in a junction of the eastern extension of the Tallgrass Prairies and Post Oak Savannah. While the flora of the site has been altered by previous human land practices with 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 in the parks, including the gray fox, bobcat, opossum, beaver, raccoon, white-tailed deer, nine-banded armadillo and eastern cottontail.
