State wildlife management area, 16,000 acres of diverse woodlands, accessible to horse trailers through the Zeb entrance. The main road through the area, Burnt Cabin Road, is seven miles from Zeb to Qualls. You can park and ride from the Zeb entrance but the better riding areas are about 3-4 miles in. There is a marked public hunting camp that is best for larger rigs. All camping is primitive. Cherokee WMA is closed from October 1-January 31 and in April for hunting. The road in is rough in places–drive slowly. Do not get off the main road with your rig, as there is no place to turn around and there are often boggy spots on the side roads.

Oklahoma Department of Wildlife regulations apply. YOU MUST CARRY AN OKLAHOMA STATE HUNTING OR FISHING LICENSE OR CONSERVATION PASS–it is state law. Out of state riders can purchase the annual conservation pass online for $26 and can use it on all Oklahoma state wildlife areas. There is no cost to camp. You may camp for up to two weeks. The park biologist lives on site and the park is patrolled by two game wardens.
