These jointly-administered state parks are perched on the edge of the dammed
Mountain Fork River. The dam submerged the town of Hochatown. Hochatown State
Park is on the lake above the dam, Beavers Bend Resort is below. Together, they
have 3,482 mountainous acres of land and 14,240 lake acres. There is a Nature
Center, amphitheater, restaurant, a wealth of watersports and guided
horseback riding available. The fishing is good above and below the dam, with
trout streams in Beavers Bend, which are stocked every other week. The longest
hiking trail is 26 miles and there are backcountry camps that give hikers a
chance to get away from it all. There also are biking trails.
Numerous park areas located around the lakes give the visitor an unmatched opportunity for outdoor family fun and relaxation. Recreational facilities include boat launching ramps, camping, picnic sites, beaches, water and sanitary facilities.
Nature Center and Forest Heritage Museum: A menagerie of creatures from snakes to owls with piercing yellow eyes can be found at the Nature Center, which provides animal rehabilitation. The center offers interpretive programs and activities daily.
The Forest Heritage Center and Museum is a tribute to the area's forestry industry. About 60 million cubic feet of lumber is harvested in McCurtain County each year. The center features 14 dioramas with taped narration that cover the wood industry from prehistoric forests to 21st-century lumbering. The center also has a wood art gallery, a chainsaw carving collection, tree-identification trail, antique forestry tools and research library.
Broken Bow lake stretches 22 miles back into the Ouachita mountain country where its unusual beauty and scenic appeal beckons all nature enthusiasts. The mountain terrain is densely forested and there are many species of birds native to the area (including Bald Eagles) for birdwatchers to enjoy. Bird watchers frequently report sighting of the endangered pleated woodpecker, the great blue heron, and bald eagles.
Contact park naturalist at (580)494-6556. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Meet at the Nature Center at 9 a.m., next to restaurant. Rain will not cancel Eagle viewing along the Mountain Fork River and on Broken Bow Lake.
For hikers there are several options available, one is a 26-mile trail named the David Boren Trail. Hikers encounter white-tailed deer, beaver, mink, eastern wild turkey, fox, raccoon, and, of course, squirrels. Three other trails, one being the Big Oak Nature Trail, offers significantly shorter distances and may prove suitable for use by senior citizens and small children. Trails wind along the River Bend Area, among the pines, and into the mountainous terrain.---------------------------------------> ----------------- -------- Diving Scuba> --------------------------------------->
The 14,240-acre lake is all that a lake should be: deep, clear blue water. It's so pure that it meets the standards for Oklahoma drinking water without treatment. The lake is a favorite for scuba divers, with an average depth of 62 feet, although there are places as deep as 185 feet. And there are no trees in it, unlike at many Texas lakes. Instead, 100-foot pines and hardwoods, with an undercover of maple, dogwood and maple, thrive on the 180 miles of shoreline.Scuba Adventurer
Year-round canoeing is offered to the public on the Lower Mountain Fork River. The Upper Mountain Fork has seasonal canoeing. Phone: 800/52-TREES------------------------------>--CANOEING --------- Companies>------------------------------>

It is the kind of golf course one would imagine finding in a pristine, pine-laden wilderness. And, in fact, the 18 holes that constitute Cedar Creek Golf Course were literally carved out of the wilds (the golf course abuts the McCurtain County Wilderness Area). Fairways cascade through stands of pine, oak, and hickory and past deer, fox, and wild turkey. More than one hole offers a fine view of Broken Bow Lake and the occasional glimpse of Bald Eagles. Cedar Creek is known for its narrow fairways and wooden roughs.
Beavers Bend State Park offers the best rainbow and brown trout fishing in Oklahoma. Besides the bimonthly stocking of 3000 or more rainbow trout by the ODWC, several thousand small brown trout are released annually, some of which reach trophy size. Twenty-inch browns and rainbows are not uncommon. The park contains three miles of the ten-mile trout stream and is not affected by power generating flows, providing fishing at all times. Many areas in the park are suited for children or beginner fishermen, while other areas will challenge even the most avid fisherman. Fly fishing is very popular throughout the fishery. The stream is divided into three sections with different regulations to enhance fishing opportunities. Trout stamps, fishing licenses and regulations are easily obtained in or near the park. Three Rivers Fly Shop, which is located at Three Rivers Fly Shop offers a full line of fly fishing gear, bait, instruction and guide service, as well as advice on stream conditions. Three Rivers Fly Shop also helps sponsor the very successful Kids Fishing Days through the month of March when most kids are having their Spring Break. With breathtaking scenery, cool clear water, and abundant wildlife, this simply is one of the best family vacation areas in the state.[click image to enlarge]
