Escape to the Mountains and Lake

Thursday, January 07, 2016

If you live in, or plan a vacation to, the Dallas, Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, Tulsa or Shreveport areas, you should also consider escaping the hectic city life. Plan a side trip within a three to four hour drive to experience a stay in a wilderness cabin located deep in the gorgeous foothills of the Kiamichi Mountains.

Beavers Bend State Park 

At this nearby park, there are nature trails, fly fishing on the Lower Mountain Fork River as well as kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating, inner tubing, and a swimming beach. Additional features are the Forest Heritage Center, the Nature Center Museum, playgrounds, miniature train rides, horseback rides, and more. In June you can enter into the celebration at the Kiamichi Owa-Chito Festival of the Forest. 

Broken Bow Lake

Comprised of more than 14,000 acres of clear and clean water and surrounded by mountains, forests, and shorelines filled with towering pines and rocky cliffs, its nature is protected because no homes, cabins or docks are allowed to be built near the water. There is a marina that offers house boat, boat slip, and jet ski rentals. 


You do not need a license to fish in the privately stocked ponds on private properties, but you do need a license to fish in the state park or the lake. The Beavers Bend State Park has been upgraded with their own spacious fishing platforms with the added safety of no vehicles allowed. 

Hiking and Biking Trails 

There are more than 15 miles of hiking and biking trails located throughout Beavers Bend State Park. You can choose an easy ten-minute stroll or a sixteen-mile track since there is a trail to cover all types of distances and levels. 

Cabin Rentals

Beavers Bend cabin rentals offer a choice of ten private fully furnished locally owned and maintained cabins with mountain top views just minutes from Beavers Bend State Park and Broken Bow Lake, Oklahoma. There are different amenities to choose from including a private community center, two stocked fishing ponds, creeks, hills, hiking trails, and more as well as privacy and seclusion.
