Steve Killian, superintendent of Cooper Lake State Park, says the park is seeking designation as a "dark sky" park whene the night skies are dark enough to see much of the Milky Way galaxy.  He says the park has installed new, less glaring parking lot lights to improve the dark-sky effect and make stars even more visible at night.
