August Is A Good Time To Camp At Cooper Lake State Park

Cooper Lake State Park, Facebook

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).

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
