For overnite stays near the Gene Howe WMA, the city of Canadian is the closest location for motels.

The town of Canadian has a festival called the "Fall Foliage Festival". This celebration is put on yearly during the 3rd weekend in October. In 2006, the Gene Howe WMA will be open for visitors and will likely host some tours during that Festival.
