Whether you’re looking to take a leisurely hike through the forest or enjoy fishing on the crystal-clear waters of Broken Bow Lake, Sundown Cabin Rentals recommends a trip to Beaver’s Bend State Park, the top destination for nature lovers in Oklahoma.
Beaver’s Bend State Park offers activities for both groups and individuals looking to spend some leisure time on their own in the great outdoors. It’s a top choice for serious hikers with 16 kilometers of hiking trails and four miles of multi-purpose trails, ideally suited for mountain biking enthusiasts. The trails lead to areas that are so remote, devoted hikers will know what it must have felt like when early settlers gazed out over Quachita National Forest. Visitors can also enjoy horseback riding tours of the area’s trails.
The park is a haven for bird watchers, offering the chance to observe eagles in their natural environment from November to February. If you’re an avid scuba diver, the staff at Sundown Cabin Rentals suggests diving in the crystal clear waters of Broken Bow Lake, it’s a top attraction for diving enthusiasts.
While you’re at Beaver’s Bend State Park, you can also enjoy a variety of water sports such as jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking or swimming on one of the many roped off swimming areas.
Before heading off for a day in the park or a camping trip, be sure to pay a visit to the Forest Heritage Center Museum for a fascinating look at forestry in the area through the years.
Pay tribute to the brave fire fighters who risk their lives to keep the area safe at Oklahoma Wildland Firefighter Memorial and view the bronze statue dedicated to Jim Burnett, a veteran firefighter who gave his life fighting a forest fire in August of 2000.
If you’re a golfer, Sundown Cabin Rentals recommends getting in a game at Cedar Creek Golf Course. It was given a 4 ½ star rating by Golf Digest Magazine[i]. Its scenic location offers spectacular views of both Broken Bow Lake and the pristine forest surrounding the course.
The Park also offers a variety of festivals year-round including the Folk Festival and Craft Show in November and the Owa-Chito Festival of the Forest in early June.
