Kozara National Park (Nacionalni Park Kozara) is a national park in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that was proclaimed a protected national forest in 1967 by President of Yugoslavia Josip Tito. It is between the rivers Una, Sava, Sana and Vrbas, in the Republika Srpska entity of BiH. These 33.75 km² of dense forest and hilly meadows have earned the nickname 'Green Beauty of Krajina'.

Kozara is a popular hunting ground, with a large 180 km² area of the park open to regulated hunting of deer, pheasants, foxes, boars, hares, and ducks.

A smaller part of the park is designated for nature lovers. Walking, hiking, biking and herb picking are among the many activities in Kozara.

Kozara was also a former battleground during World War II. The Partisans intimate knowledge of Bosnia’s rough terrain gave them an advantage over the newly occupying Nazi Germans.
