Highlights of Lake Thunderbird
in Cherokee Village, Arkansas

Cherokee Village, Arkansas has seven private lakes that offer plenty of outdoor recreation.

One of the seven is Lake Thunderbird. The highlights of this lake are:

* 264 acres

* 7.2 miles of shoreline

* Maximum depth 75 feet

* Boating, water-skiing, tubing, fishing, swimming, and canoeing allowed

* The largest and most popular lake in Cherokee Village

* Marina w/ boat rentals, bait and fishing tackle

* Access through channel to Gitche Gummee Swimming Beach on Lake Sequoyah

* Navigable channel connects and allows boat access between Lake Thunderbird and Lake Sequoyah.

Lake Thunderbird is the most popular lake in Cherokee Village. It is the main focal point for the village. It is where the annual Fourth of July Fireworks celebration is held in the village and is always one of the highlights of the year.

Lake Thunderbird is where to go to water ski and take the kids tubing on a beautiful summer day. At night, when the skiers are off the lake, untie the lines, push off from the dock, and take in a nice evening cruise and enjoy the evening. Get up in the morning and open up the throttle again.

However, when you feel like getting away from the crowds and the fast boats, and you just want to anchor up in the middle of the lake and float and swim, it is just a short boat ride through the channel into Lake Sequoyah where there is no wake allowed and the simple pleasures of a quiet lake begin.
