10 Blissful Cabins in Broken Bow Oklahoma, Places to Eat & Things to do

Broken Bow, Oklahoma – aka, Hochatown, is a short drive across the Red River border between Texas and Oklahoma and a popular vacation spot within a 3-hour drive for families to get close to nature. 

Within 90 minutes you could be in Oklahoma City or close to Lake Texoma, which is a great place to vacation. We have spent a few relaxing and happy weekends there as a family and have the best tips and ideas for you to do the same.

You can factor in a visit to Eisenhower State Park en route.

Looking for Cabins in Broken Bow Oklahoma is the first step to planning a trip.

Booking one of these great Broken Bow cabin rentals is a must, as families can vacation together, enjoying hiking, boating on the Broken Bow lake, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors in the Beavers Bend State Park and cute local town restaurants, a winery, and some fun local attractions for the Kids in Hochatown, Oklahoma.

Things to do in Broken Bow, Oklahoma

For the adults of the family, there’s a Winery (Girls Gone Wine) that offers a great range and a gift shop with super cute gifts (We recommend you try the Winearitas!)

A Weekend Itinerary could include:

  • Go to Tomahawk’s for axe throwing  
  • Spot the Deer in the forest while you’re hiking more than 12 trails in Beavers Bend State Park and then hitch a ride on the cute train ride.
  • Kayak the Lower Mountain Fork River
  • Zipline over Broken Bow Lake
  • Ride go-karts in the Big Foot Speedway
  • Pet the animals at Hochatown Petting Zoo

Head to Steven’s Gap (Off of U.S. 259, Hochatown, OK) to pick up one of the BrokenTikiTours. They get the little kids involved, who may even be able to drive the boat!

Head 9 miles west on Highway 3, and try Riverman Trail Rides for horseback riding. It’s a beautiful ride. It puts you up on this huge cliff overlooking a river – it is stunning.

Ages 10 and up ride their own horse; littles can ride with an adult on a tandem saddle in the rear – the people running this are the folks who own and live on the land itself – truly amazing!

The food at Buffalo Grill is also great. If you fish, go to the river for trout. Each person must have a Oklahoma fishing license. 

For a little more adventure, you can Rent ATV’s and Boat Rentals – couples or families looking for adventure and a unique experience in the great Ouachita mountains.

You could always try Ziplining too with Rugaru Aerial Adventures, but be sure to check the requirements for the members of your family that can take part. Tripadvisor classifies it as their current #1 Outdoor Adventure in Broken Bow!

Broken Tiki Tours

Enjoy the Water on Broken Bow Lake

To swim in the Broken Bow Lake or rent a Boat, head to Steven’s Gap and to the Beavers Bend Marina for rentals. Add a Tube too, for extra fun!

The lake is usually warm (depending on the time of the year).

There are some rocky beaches off Steven’s Gap –> Eagle Dr where you can swim, but the river was fun to catch tadpoles in the shallow areas. At the little lake, you can rent paddle boats and canoes.

Places to Eat Out in Broken Bow, Oklahoma

For Pizza, Grateful Head is very popular for the atmosphere, but the Pizza at Mountain Fork Brewery is renowned! 

We love the Beavers Bend Brewery, Jake’s Brickhouse Grill for steaks, Shuck Me for Seafood and Buffalo Grill (for Barbecue!) and the Rolling Fork Takery in Hochatown – they source everything fresh and local, and the owner creates all the recipes.

Another great option is a little place called the River Walk Market in the Hochatown Strip Mall which does breakfast and lunch buffets with great home-cooking. You’ll pay according to your kids age – $.99/year up until 8, then it’s a flat price for everyone.

For Coffee and Desserts, try Okie Girls Coffee and Ice Cream, Northside Ice Cream Parlor and Gypsy Brew Java.

Rental Tips

  • Check if they are Kid or Pet Friendly
  • Check the Host and Property Ratings and Reviews: the reviews usually tell you if the neighbors were loud, the host responsive, if the place was clean or how easy the parking was! 
  • Are Linens and Basics provided? Always check if you need to bring kitchen paper, your own sheets and toilet paper. Listings usually provide that information. 
  • The closest Grocery Store is Pruett’s and stock may be low if it’s a popular time of year for rentals. There is a Walmart in the town, but you may want to bring your own Groceries.

Items to bring

  • Fishing poles
  • Stuff to make s’mores
  • Bikes
  • Bring Rain boots for the creek
  • Bug spray

If you are not well versed in starting your own log fire, or want to ensure you don’t rely on having a stock of logs, you can purchase a duraflame log at Tom Thumb. Most cabins will provide logs for you for an extra fee. Check when you book or contact the owner before you go.
