We spent one night in a tent at the camping area. This is a very clean and well kept Park. The view from the overlook is breathtaking! The underlook trail is a nice easy walk and one can capture some nice pictures.

The views are spectacular! Plenty to do also. You can hike or park and sit in an area and enjoy the scenery.

Spent a nice afternoon at Coopers Rock this past weekend. The park is very clean, great little gift shop and snack bar. We went out on the overlook and did the short, easy Underlook trail and got some beautiful pictures. Very pretty area.

Cooper's Rock closes the gate at "dusk." I usually ask at the park office each visit.
