Suggestions for enjoying the perfect "Beavers Bend Adventure"

Arrive at your beautiful cabin, unpack and head out to Beavers Bend State Park , nestled among tall trees on one side and the Lower Mountain Fork River on the other, to enjoy the ultimate in nature's beauty and relaxation.

Day 1:

Morning - Nothing beats an early morning spent on the water surrounded by the vibrant shades of turning leaves reflecting off crystal clear lake waters. Through the end of October, rent a canoe from Beavers Bend River Floats and watch the sun rise over Broken Bow Lake, or try your luck fishing on the Mountain Fork River. Head to Beavers Bend Fly Shop, located within the state park, to stock up on tackle, learn the best fishing holes or learn how to fly fish from a guide.

Afternoon - Once you've worked up an appetite, head over to the on-site Beavers Bend Restaurant for traditional and hearty American fare. Dine on the outdoor patio to enjoy a wonderful view of the Lower Mountain Fork River with its peaceful flowing water surrounded by majestic cypress trees. Then, continue your outdoor adventure with a hike on the renowned David Boren Hiking Trail. Take a stroll under trees heavy with colorful leaves within the trail system, which is comprised of seven smaller trails that allow guests to mix-and-match according to their time limit and skill level. For horseback riding, head to the Beavers Bend Depot Inc. to enjoy a one hour trail ride that crosses 2.5 miles of beautiful terrain.

Evening - After a long day outdoors, refuel at Abendigo's Grill & Patio in Broken Bow. Located a short distance from Beavers Bend State Park, diners at Abendigo's are treated to upscale American cuisine in a relaxing atmosphere. Linger on the patio to enjoy live music or head back to your cabin and gaze at a night full of stars.

Day 2:

Morning - Nestle under warm, soft covers in your private cabin a little longer than normal, then get ready for another fun-filled day in Broken Bow. Satisfy your caffeine cravings with a trip to The Hocha Mocha and indulge in a fall-inspired drink like spice chai tea or pecan praline latte, as well as a fresh-made pastry. Then, visit Body Harmony Day Spa for a relaxing massage and work out any remaining tension from the previous day's adventures.

Afternoon - After your massage, drive over to Girls Gone Wine where you can sample from their 16 unique wines and take home a bottle for later. Then, stock up on thick-cut slabs of handmade fudge from WhipPoorWill Resort & Fudge Shop. With a mixture of tried-and-true favorites as well as seasonal specialties, you're sure to find something to love. Take a leisurely afternoon drive and find the perfect place to picnic. Spread out a blanket under a grove of cyprus trees, snack on your sweet treat and watch as crimson leaves slowly swirl to the ground on a gentle fall breeze.

Evening - A trip to Broken Bow wouldn't be complete without dining at Grateful Head Pizza Oven & Tap Room. Warm up inside amongst giant pizza ovens and the restaurant's rustic atmosphere or visit the outdoor dining area where a giant fireplace and space heaters will keep you toasty under the clear night sky. Order one of their hand-tossed specialty pizzas, each of which comes with fun names like psychedelic supremo, maui waui and tree hugger.

Special tip: If you visit Broken Bow during the second weekend of November, check out the Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show. This annual event features turn-of-the-century demonstrations, arts and crafts, live music, a petting zoo and more.

Can't miss: Another must-see on any southeast Oklahoma trip is the Talimena National Scenic Byway. This renowned fall foliage drive spans 54 miles in Talihina, roughly one hour north of Broken Bow. A mixture of winding roads and breathtaking scenic vistas draw travelers from across the nation each fall, so be sure to check it out on your way into or out of Broken Bow.

Broken Bow Lake

McCurtain County is the place to visit for all kinds of water sports! Start with Broken Bow Lake with over 14,000 acres of pristine deep water lake. Broken Bow Lake is incredibly clear and cool because its 180 miles of shore is lined with the forest covered Kiamichi Mountains , not commercial development.

Bring your own boat or rent a wide variety of water craft at the lake including ski boats, pontoon boats and house boats. You can also rent jet skis, canoes, paddle boats and inner tubes. Snorkeling and scuba diving is also very popular because of the clear water of Broken Bow Lake and scuba rental and support is available.



Beavers Bend Resort Park

The Scenic beauty of Beaver's Bend Resort Park makes it one of Oklahoma 's most popular resort areas. The crystal clear water of the lake and river, as well as the 100 foot pine trees, makes the park the perfect location for your next outing.

Much of the charm of Beavers Bend Resort Park lies in the fact that when the park was built in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the materials of choice came from the land itself: slabs on native stone, and hardwood timbers thicker than a man's chest. From them, CCC crews fashioned cabins, stair-cases, fireplaces, campsites, and even the Forest Heritage Center and Museum, which now doubles as the Beavers Bend Resort Park office.

Beavers Bend Resort Park is located six miles north of Broken Bow on Hwy 259 north, turn right on 259a to the park. If you want privacy in a natural setting with all of the comforts of home, join us at Beavers Bend Resort Park . See you soon!
