Located along the waters of Lake Holathlikaha, Fort Cooper State Park is a historical state park built at the site of the 1836 stockade used during the second Seminole War.

Fort Cooper State Park is named after the stockades built by the First Georgia Batallion during the second Seminole War in 1836. The fort was used to house wounded and sick soldiers returning to from the front lines as well as a static defense against incursions. It was especially useful during skirmishes against the Seminole Indians in the area.

Today, the park is a recreational area which features activities such as fishing, canoeing, and swimming in the lake, as well as wildlife viewing, nature walking, and camping along the shores.
