Grand Lake O' The Cherokees
The Cherokee State Park is in Langley, right on the shores of the Grand Lake O' The Cherokees. The lake has 1,300 miles of shoreline and more than 59,000 surface acres.
The park abounds with outdoor recreation, including fishing, skiing, swimming, boating, golf and camping. The lake ranks high among the top bass fishing lakes in the region, according to the Grand River Dam Authority.
Campgrounds are available in the park and include such amenities as picnic areas, playgrounds, lighted boat ramp and a golf course. RV sites and tent sites are available with electric service. The Grand Cherokee area below the Pensacola Dam offers RV sites with full hookups.
Hours of Operation
You can visit the park year-round. The park is open 24 hours, seven days a week. Park rangers, however, are on duty during weekends only.
You must have a fishing license to fish in the state park. All anglers ages 18 to 64 must obtain a valid, state-issued fishing license, according to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
