5 Tips for Planning Your Broken Bow Vacation
For visitors who are unfamiliar with the Beavers Bend State Park area, planning a stay can seem daunting. Add in the complications of a global pandemic and it can truly feel like a shot in the dark. We are here to help you hit the mark.
Here are five things to consider when planning your Broken Bow vacation:
When to visit:
Broken Bow welcomes visitors year-round, with each season offering unique attractions. To decide which season is the best fit for your vacation, consider which season’s offerings are most appealing to your group. Those who visit in the fall and winter benefit from cooler temperatures, fewer crowds and Broken Bow’s famous fall foliage which peaks in mid-November.
For spring and summer visitors, Broken Bow’s swimming areas, kayaking and water sports offer a reprieve from the heat. No matter the season, visitors may enjoy hiking the hills of Beavers Bend State park or choose from a variety of indoor activities in the Hochatown/Broken Bow area.
While any time is a good time, considering the activity level and preference of your group can help make the most of your time in Broken Bow.
Where to stay:
The best accommodation style depends on the purpose of your trip and the familiarity of your group. Large cabins, like Infinity Views, can accommodate up to 20 guests, offering private bedroom and bathroom spaces and shared living and dining areas. Similar options help families maximize togetherness and time by cutting out commutes between cabins.
Those who want time together (but not too much time together) might consider single-family cabins, like Infinity Pines, which offer privacy as well as a common outdoor gathering space for shared meals and activities.
What to do:
Few places offer as many crowd-pleasing activities as the Broken Bow/Hochatown area. Our activity guide includes the area’s best activities including family-focused options like the Hochatown Petting Zoo, axe throwing at Thomahawk’s for adventurers and Broken Tiki Tours to top off your girls trip.
Since many visitors prefer to keep it close to the cabin, our rentals feature large game areas, pool tables, games and free Hulu Live subscriptions. In cabin amenities are an affordable, convenient form of entertainment. See our full list of amenities here .
What to eat and drink:
Broken Bow is a food-lover's haven, full of wineries, breweries and a diverse selection of restaurants. Some of our favorites include Rolling Fork Takery and Abendigos. Our restaurant guide highlights the best places to eat in the Hochatown/Broken Bow area. Many also feature delivery and outdoor dining.
For those who prefer to prepare their own meals, our cabins offer a fully stocked kitchen, outdoor grilling options and all of the amenities necessary to produce a gourmet meal at the cabin. If you plan to shop for groceries in Broken Bow, Pruett’s Food and Walmart are within a short driving distance. Visitors should plan to purchase meat, produce and frozen groceries at Pruett’s, since the local Walmart has a limited refrigerated section.
The pandemic has made travel simultaneously more difficult and necessary. The need to get away is matched by the need to do it safely. Broken Bow has continued to welcome visitors throughout the pandemic, with safety measures in place. Although Broken Bow is not currently under a mask mandate, wearing a mask and following social distancing recommendations are always encouraged. Local guidelines can be found here.
