Cooper Mill Road is an easy, scenic, gravel connector road that travels north and south between Highway 192 and Interstate 80. You may encounter washboarding along the road, but the road is perfectly suitable for any vehicle. Cooper Mill Road has one scenic overlook on the north edge of Sand Mountain and several scenic bridge crossings, with great watering holes to get reprieve from the summer heat. This road passes numerous hiking trails and a few wildlife habitats, making it a great place to explore the Bald Eagle State Forest on foot. Camping can be found on the road's northern end at State Forest site number 9, a roadside campsite with a steel fire ring and a picnic table. Camping permits and reservations are required for all State Forest Campsites and can be reserved online or by calling the State Forest Office. There is little to no cell service along the road. Making prior camping arrangements is highly recommended.
