About Beavers Bend
Located in a remote corner of Southeast Oklahoma, in the Kiamichi Mountains, sits Broken Bow Lake, a reservoir on the Mountain Fork River. Stretching back into the Ouachita Mountains, Broken Bow Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in Oklahoma, and one of the largest as well. Above and below the dam creating this clear water paradise, you will find Beavers Bend State Park. Comprising of two locations, this area is a popular destination for folks in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, and even Louisiana. But, even though it is a sought after destination for fun and relaxation, its remote location keeps it from becoming too overcrowded, and in turn, is why it is such a beautiful and clean area.
On the shores of Broken Bow Lake, the Hochatown side of the park offers visitors access to the lake, as well as scenic camping areas, hiking and mountain biking trails, the Cedar Creek Golf Course, and a full-service marina. The Hochatown side also offers the Lakeview Lodge. Each of the 40 rooms, some of them suites, offer breathtaking views of Broken Bow Lake, especially at sunrise.
Just below the lake, where the waters of the Mountain Fork emerge from beneath the dam, sits the Beavers Bend side of the park. Nestled among the trees along a curve, or bend, in the river, this area of the park offers numerous RV and tent camping areas, many more miles of hiking and backpacking trails, a nature center, rustic cabins, and plenty of other outdoor activities. Also, guests will be able to enjoy horseback trail rides, a park store and restaurant, trout fishing along the river, and canoe floats as well.
For pricing and availability of the park lodge, cabins, campground or other facilities, please call or email the park directly. The contact information is listed above.
