General Information

Description - Sequoyah NWR was established on the upper end of Robert S. Kerr Reservoir in Sequoyah, Muskogee and Haskell counties of eastern Oklahoma. It lies astride the junction of the Arkansas and Canadian rivers and is part of the McClellan-Kerr Navigation System which is open to ocean-going freight traffic.


Rich river-bottomland with numerous ponds and sloughs provides food and cover for waterfowl, other migratory birds and resident wildlife. Farm crops are grown on a cooperative basis and a portion is left in the fields for wildlife.


Wildlife usage varies with the season with fall, winter and spring providing the largest concentrations. Snow geese and mallards provide the most numerous populations for viewing and some limited hunting in season. Refuge programs contribute significantly to the recreational opportunities of eastern Oklahoma.

Report: Me and my two boys seen the sign from I40 exit 297. The park was very easy to access. We took a drive along the tour road and seen much wildlife. Deer, snapping turtles, all kinds of birds. We didn't see any eagles but we did find the platform at sandtown bottoms where they used to release the bald eagle back into the wild. It is a great area for anyone who enjoys hiking and watching the wildlife.
