Steve Killian, superintendent of Cooper Lake State Park, says the number of people camping at Cooper Lake State Park is less in August, so reservations can be made much more easily, sometimes on the day of the camping event.  And Steve says August is also good because the park is great place to view the Perseid meteor shows, which peak on Wednesday and Thursday nights, August 11-12.  Educational programs have returned to the park and several are scheduled this weekend (August 6-7).
