Do you live in North Texas or Oklahoma? Do you love adventure and beautiful surroundings? Do you live in the city? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you’ll want to read on! Most people think of Oklahoma as a flat, dry prairie with a muddy lake or two. We have partnered with McCurtain County to share our honest views! McCurtain County is in the southeast corner of Oklahoma with beautiful clear waters and blankets of rich colors. Beavers Bend State Park is nestled among the majestic Ouachita Mountains and along the serene shores of Broken Bow Lake and Mountain Fork River and super easy to reach from north Texas and not difficult from OKC and Tulsa.
Where To Stay
Choose from a variety of luxurious cabins to spend a weekend family getaway or a weeklong trout fishing expedition and every thrilling, one-of-a-kind experience in between. Especially check in the off-season (Sept – April) and start experiencing the outdoors and plan your adventure. Cabins are often new and high-end, stocked with amenities like satellite TV and wifi, all privately owned and managed. Be among the many visitors who roast marshmallows and make smores by the campfires or soak in a hot tub to soothe your muscles.
Legend and Adventure
Find adventure in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains, with tall pine forests, clear rivers stocked with trout, and a deep, dark lake. Be sure to have your camera because besides the beauty around you, legend has it that Sasquatch roams these woods.
Although it would be pretty awesome to see Bigfoot, the forests, lakes, rivers, and wetlands make the perfect home for plenty of wildlife. Document how many different animals, birds, or insects you can find. This could be a great learning experience for the kids or the perfect scenario for wildlife photos!
If you love birds, check out the Red Slough Birding Convention, scheduled this year for May 6-9, 2017. There’s still time to book a tour and a sweet cabin, too.
Restaurants and Shopping
You will find the friendly Oklahomans who run the cabins also run the restaurants and retail shops.
Shopping – Boutique shops of all kinds, from art to antiques, books to bar stools, clothing to collectibles. Lots of roadside stands, charming downtowns and one-of-a-kind places perfect for treasure-hunting.
Dining – Unique restaurants abound throughout the county, from pizza and beer to steak and wine, and everything in between. And don’t miss the best fried pickles in the land!
Spas – From full-body massage to full beauty treatments, time at the spa can take relaxation to a whole new level.
Wine-tasting – McCurtain County is home to an extremely popular winery that turns a tasting into an unforgettable social experience. You’ll find lots of wine merchandise to commemorate this fun visit.
Hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting, boating, water sports, ATV trails, horseback riding, golfing — any outdoor activity you can imagine is at your fingertips when you’re in Beavers Bend. And the fun doesn’t stop if you have a hankering to head indoors. You can enjoy a variety of museums, casinos, wineries, nightlife destinations and more — if you can tear yourself away from the comfort of your cabin, that is.
Enjoy rolling mountains, tall pine woods, clear water, wildlife, and stars. De-stress from the hustle of the city, share your childhood memories with your children, or spend time with friends and reconnect in a natural environment.
