Cherokee Park is one of Marathon County's largest natural parks located on the Big Eau Pleine River. It comprises 69 acres along the Big Eau Pleine River, with an impoundment that provides for swimming and fishing.

A shelter overlooks the river and provides space for group gatherings. It features a reservable enclosed shelter with kitchen, five tables, electricity, water pump and fireplace. The shelter's covered wing has grills attached, a fireplace and six tables. Outside there are vault toilets, open field, swimming area, playground equipment, gazebo, scattered grills & tables, horseshoe pits, dumpster, walking trails/paved path and a small open shelter.

For bird watchers, the park offers lots of wildflowers and unique plants to attract a variety of birds. The walking trail along the river provides a great viewing perspective.
