Cherokee State Park is located in northeastern Oklahoma on the shore of Grand Lake O' the Cherokees, one of Oklahoma's largest lakes with over 59,000 surface acres and 1,300 miles of shoreline. Until the 1930's this area was Osage Indian hunting ground and a haven for fur trappers. Beginning in the 1820's and concluding with the Trail of Tears in 1839, this region became part of the relocation area for the Cherokee Nation until forced to give up tribal ownership in 1893. Cherokee State Park is made up of three different segments: Riverside Area, Lakeside Area, and Cherokee Area. RIVERSIDE AREA is located below Pensacola Dam (considered to be the larges multiple arch dam in the world) and is known for great fishing. Features include picnic sites (1 group shelter), 68 campsites, 2 comfort stations - 1 with showers, a lighted boat ramp, and a new nine hole golf course. The highlight of the LAKESIDE AREA is its excellent swimming beach. Other features include picnic sites (1 group shelter), 22 campsites, a comfort station with showers, a playground, and a lighted boat ramp. CHEROKEE AREA features a small swimming beach, picnic sites (1 group shelter), 24 campsites, and a comfort station with showers. All water sports (including scuba diving) are allowed on Grand Lake making this an attractive camping area.
