RV sites can accommodate rigs up to 40-feet in length.
Lake Tenkiller, which boasts 13,000 acres of water and over 130 miles of shoreline, is known as a wonderful place for boating, watersports and fishing. Fishermen staying at Cherokee Landing State Park in Park Hill can catch a variety of crappie, large and smallmouth bass, catfish and white bass. The park also offers a lighted boat ramp and handicap-accessible fishing dock.
Cherokee Landing State Park offers entertainment for a day or a week with a swimming beach, children's playground and softball field. With the park's central location between Oklahoma City (148 miles), Little Rock (163 miles) and Wichita (190 miles), Cherokee Landing State Park is the perfect destination for getting away without going too far. At only 80 miles outside of Tulsa, the park would be a great weekend getaway for city dwellers needing a reprieve.
Pack a picnic lunch and head out to the park's sandy swimming beach or rest under one of the many shaded picnic tables scattered throughout the park. Or, bring out the whole family for an old fashioned game of softball. Be sure to put Cherokee Landing State Park in Park Hill on your list when visiting Lake Tenkiller.
