Do any of the locations have shower facilities?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/22/15

Echo, yes! It's always best to contact the park staff first for questions before leaving them here in the comment section. You can reach the park office at 918-435-8066 or by emailing Cherokee@TravelOK.com.


From Echo Mackey on 04/21/15

I have a few questions, is there a phone number or email address?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 11/06/14

Jason, the weather is generally good but pretty cool. People do 4x4 at the Disney/Little Blue Area at Grand Lake during that time of year, however be sure to check out the winterization notices. You can find information about the area including the notices by searching 'Disney Little Blue' in the search box at the top of the page. Thanks for using TravelOK.com!


From Jason on 11/05/14

What is the weather generally like around thanksgiving? Is it snowy? Just cold? Do people come 4x4 there that time of year?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/17/14

Terry, sorry, monthly and weekly rates are not offered at Oklahoma's state parks. However, you may stay in the same campsite for up to 14 days. Please see the park manager for extension requests. Extension request approvals are based on the season and availability. If you have any questions please call 918-435-8066. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Terry on 03/15/14

From TravelOK.com Staff on 11/04/13

Jerry, there is a boat ramp below the dam with access to Hudson Lake. If you have any questions, please call the Cherokee Area at 918-435-8066. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From jerry poppenhouse on 11/02/13

is there a boat ramp below the dam with access to Hudson Lake? If not why?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 05/07/13

L. Young, there is a general rule that RVs must be present no more than 14 days on any given site, but that is ultimately left to the discretion of the park manager. Please contact them with your concerns at 918-435-8066. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From L. Young on 05/06/13

How many days can one keep their RV in the park? I know of one that has been sitting in a park unattended for 14 days, I dont think that is far that this RV can stay there on a daily basis, I doubt they are even paying to park it there. This is in the Cherokee State Park, in Disney, Okla.


From M Richard on 03/13/13

@Retta Coats - I was told all the RV spots were reserved but the tent sites were first come first serve. We are heading down in the morning looking for tent sites. Hoping we can find some for our group of 14.


From Retta Coats on 03/13/13

I was at the Cherokee park tonite 03-12-13, and every campsite had a reserve on it. I have been told this is against the rules and some of the campsites are to remain open for first come first serve. I'm calling head office tomorrow to see what the deal is. Okla. is an open records state and I want to see if all the parks are being paid for every day and spot because every spot had reserves on them but no campers on any of them. Are we loosing money keeping them reserved and no one in them?


From oldy buy goody on 03/04/12

For those of you who have been long time visitors of the state parks in the Langley area you might notice a change. Long time ranger Charlie McGuire has retired and New Ranger John Johnson will be taking his post. Lets all send a heartfelt farwell to Charlie and welcome John.


From Larry Stevens on 02/19/12

I totaly agree with the latest posting. The bathrooms were poorly ventilated and constantly trashy. We were camped there 4 nights and the only maintenance to the bathrooms and the showers was to add toilet paper. Water pressure in the showers was pathetic and the drains were constantly clogged with hair and leaves. The state needs to make some unannounced inspections.


From Disappointed Longtime Patron on 07/13/10

They have a new restrooms at Lakeside. But make sure to take plenty of quarters as you now have toPAY to take a shower and that is after the $4.00 a night increase to cover the cost of the new facility. There is only one bathroom per gender so there is a line when the swim area is busy. There are no trashcans in or near the bathrooms do personal items are discarded on the floor. The bathrooms were not cleaned daily either. Whoever designed the showers was not thinking of the average person, you must be a small child or a very tall person to get a decent shower. The only location to place your dry items while you shower is actually part of the shower, it is the shower seat , that I assume is their weak attempt at ADA Compliance. Anyone in a wheelchair or disabled would not actually be able to utilize these wonderful new facilities as the showerheads are not movable and do not operate at the proper heights. I understand the need to pay for showers but make it worth paying for. We have utilized this campsite for over 25 years and this will be our last visit to this park. There are too many other nice parks around Grand Lake that are actually worth the money, this one is no longer worth it!
