Explore and Adventure in Nature

Here in Hochatown you can find tons of fun activities for kids, wineries & breweries for the adult fun, boutique shopping and a great selection of local restaurants. Beavers Bend State Park is an outdoor wonderland with all sorts of adventure under the piney canopy that makes Broken Bow such a magical spot. The beautiful forest rests in the foothills of the Kiamichi Mountains and the Ouachita National Forest along with Broken Bow Lake and the Mountain Fork River. Beavers Bend State Park is a great place for observing wildlife in their natural environment. You may even see bears grazing serenely in the meadows or deer staring inquisitively as they cross paths with hikers.

Are you a bird watcher? There is a variety of feathered creatures such as ducks, geese, and woodpeckers. Wherever you go in the park, there are surprises and amazing views right around every corner. Within the State Park, there is something for everyone – whether a peaceful hike through the forest or more thrill-seeking adventure.

For those that enjoy hiking, hit the trails and enjoy the fresh air, hardwood trees and all the best scenery the Oklahoma has to offer. Choose a trail like Skyline Trail with steep inclines or choose an easier scenic route like South Park Trail. The David Boren Hiking Trail, named after the former governor of Oklahoma, is 16 miles of hiking plus a 4-mile multi-purpose mountain bike trail. Or perhaps, you want to explore on horseback or by train – Beavers Bend Train Depot & Trail Rides are available to take you on tours under the pine canopy.

Calling all Fishing Adventurers

Beavers Bend State Park attracts thousands of fishers each year that look forward to testing their luck on Mountain Fork River and Broken Bow Lake. The cooler water above Broken Bow dam has rock floors and crystal clear water which holds a diverse range of fish species including smallmouth bass, spotted bass, white bass and largemouth bass as well as crappie, bluegill, and sunfish. Trout fish are also stocked year-round. The Mountain Fork River is one of the most popular areas for fly fishing in Oklahoma and the South and Midwest United States. Local fishing guides are available and are great for helping you find all the best fishing places until you’re more familiar with the area. What a great family adventure to learn about fishing and enjoying a day on the water.
