Camden's Cooper River Park is found on both the north and south shores of Cooper River Lake. The urban park is open daily from dawn to dusk and offers a paved loop path for bikers and pedestrians, as well as other recreational facilities such as a boathouse and large playground. On the east side of the loop, the trail also extends out about a mile along S. Park Avenue through a residential area to Vesper Avenue.
The loop around Cooper River Park is around 3.7 miles and passes through the 346-acre park and encompassing wetland and grassland habitats and wildlife like egrets, herons, bald eagles and raptors.
