Back To The Scenic And Serene Beaver’s Bend State Park

Amazing sunset.

Okay so my family and I went to Beaver’s Bend State Park in Broken Bow, Oklahoma again for a weekend adventure last month. This is the second time we went there, and I think it is going to be a tradition now.  We love the place.  It’s scenic, calming, relaxing, and beautiful.  It feels like you are in a different place, away from the busy life in the city.

We drove there Saturday after noon and we arrived at the Hochatown Lodge at around 3:00 P.M.  It was the very first time we booked an accommodation at Hochatown Lodge and  we were somewhat satisfied in our stay.

The room rate was reasonable and the room was just the right size.

  • We had two double queen beds non-smoking room.
  • Secured door locks.
  • Refrigerator, microwave, oven, hair dryer, coffee maker, television, and complete toiletries.
  • The towels smelled really good.  🙂

I am giving the Hochatown Lodge a rating of 3.5 because:

  1. The quilts need upgrade.
  2. They should serve bacon and eggs for breakfast, too.  🙂

Overall, it’s an okay place to stay if you are looking for an affordable accommodation around Beaver’s Bend State Park.

After we checked in and stuff, we drove to Beaver’s Bend and looked around for a place to go the next day.  We found the beach where we hung out by lake last year.  We spent a while there relaxing until sunset.

Beaver’s Bend State Park Is Also A Camping Destination

Few weeks ago we went to Oklahoma for a family weekend getaway.  My family and I visited the Broken Bow Lake in Oklahoma.  My husband said he, together with his brother and nephew, had camped here in Beaver’s Bend State Park.  He showed us the spot where they camped out.

In the photo below, he was showing us the place leading us to the camping site.  My darling daughter enjoyed following her daddy.  We’re following the leader. 🙂

Surely it is a great camping destination especially this summer school is out (here in the US).  You, your family, and friends will definitely enjoy being here with nature.

One of the most interesting part of our visit here at Beaver’s Bend is seeing a Loon.  Yes, it is a bird.  A diver bird.  My husband was amazed seeing it and he told me and daughter about it.  At first he was trying to figure out what type of bird it was until it dove for at least 30 seconds under water.  Then he figured it was a loon.  I timed it’s second and third dives and they were about a minute each.  Wow!

Loon bird.

Dear husband and darling daughter were looking for crystals.

On the second day of our trip was just purely exploring and adventure.  After breakfast we went to the lake again and looked for crystals.  Although we had our swimsuits on, we didn’t swim because the water was so cold.  ‘Couldn’t stand it.  So we just played with the waves as they splash on the bank.

So cool waters and peaceful place. I love it!

We left Beaver’s Bend State Park at about three o’clock in the afternoon.  It’s about three hours drive home. I did the driving all the way.
