If you're looking for a great vacation destination this spring or summer, plan a trip to Broken Bow Lake. Located in McCurtain County, Oklahoma, just nine miles northeast of Broken Bow, Broken Bow Lake is a reservoir that offers hiking, camping, hunting, fishing and water sports for the entire family. 

Spanning 14,000 acres of natural, unspoiled wilderness, Broken Bow Lake is one of the most picturesque destinations in Oklahoma. The crystal clear lake has more than 180 miles of shoreline that's surrounded by wooded forests and mountain terrain. The beautiful scenery and tranquil setting provides the perfect get-a-way for an outdoor adventure.

Big Oak Nature Trail

The Big Oak Nature Trail that winds through towering trees and undisturbed forests is the perfect spot for hiking and camping. With camping and picnic sites scattered throughout the area, you can stop for lunch, relaxation or an overnight camp out. Along the trail, you'll find thousands of colorful birds, lots of lush, green vegetation, and a variety of wildlife that's native to the surrounding forests and mountains. Hunting is permitted in some areas, so you'll see an abundance of deer, turkeys, and other types of game during hunting season.

Beavers Bend Marina

With thousands of gallons of clear, clean water, Beavers Bend Marina, in Beavers Bend State Park, offers a variety of water sports and outdoor activities. You can swim, sunbath and relax, or rent a jet ski, canoe, kayak, speed boat, pontoon or houseboat to explore the lake. Whether you prefer an adventure-packed ride on a jet ski or speed boat, or a relaxing afternoon cruise on a pontoon or houseboat, you're sure to enjoy the beautiful scenery around Broken Bow Lake.

If you like to fish, you won’t find better fishing anywhere in the region! The clear, cool waters that flow from the surrounding Ouachita Mountains make Beavers Bend a prime destination for fly fishing. Fishermen from Oklahoma, Texas and nearby counties head to Beavers Bend year-round to catch rainbow and brown trout, as well as catfish, crappie, bass, and other varieties of fresh water fish that are abundant in Broken Bow Lake.
