Things to Do

We are in Hochatown in the Broken Bow Lake area, 13 miles North of (and an extention of) the city of Broken Bow Oklahoma on Highway 259. There are a variety of restaurant here (see below in the drop down list, along with other categories of businesses here). I highly recommend Abendigos and Shuck Me. I also recommend the Petting Zoo And Wildlife Rescue Center which is between the cowboy miniature golf and Beavers Bend Mining Co. on Highway 259.

The Beavers Bend area south of Broken Bow Lake is where the Mountain Fork River winds through the hills with plenty of campgrounds, picnic areas, boating and hiking trails along the way. You get there on Highway 259a, which makes a spectacular 10 mile loop starting about 8 miles north from the center of Broken Bow and ending back on highway 259 in Hochatown. The forest Heritage Center And Museum is here (I highly recommend going there. This is also where you can pick up free trail maps; one of the trails starts right at the parking lot!) along with several places of business such as gift shops, the Beavers Bend Fly Shop, paddle boat rentals, a restaurant and country store, and the Nature Center.  In June, Beavers Bend State Park hosts the Owa Chito Festival of the Forest, and in November, the Beavers Bend Folk Festival.

The Beavers Bend area along the shores of Broken Bow Lake (on maps it is called Hochatown State Park) is reached mainly by driving down one of three roads. Stevens Gap Road starts beside Abendigos restaurant. This is where Rugaru Zipline and the Marina is, along with boat ramps and picnic areas; and a road called Eagle Drive which has the best lake views. Carson Creek Road on the North side of Hochatown also has boat ramps and picnic areas. Golf Course Road is almost 2 miles north of Hochatown and has an 18 hole golf course on Broken Bow Lake with pro shop, practice range and putting green.

The Ouachita National Forest has multiple entry point roads off highway 259 starting immediately North of Hochatown. The main and nicest road to drive through the forest with a regular street vehical is about 4.5 miles north of Hochatown, named on Google maps as 51000/Cedar Creek Trail, but in real life the road sign says 53000, and there is a white rectangular sign further off the road designating it an off highway vehical use area, so drive slow: speed limit is 25 but on a busy Saturday drive slower, there are kids on ATVs. (ATVs must have a spark arrestor by law.) There are many old logging roads branching off 53000 that are off-limits to motor vehicals, which makes for excellant hiking. However in the summer it is best to stick to the many well worn vehical side roads to avoid ticks and chiggers.
