We are on a road trip and left Atoka, OK on our way to Hot Springs, AR. We wanted something to do and found this museum. It is located in Beaver Bend State Park. It is free! The museum is mostly placards of information. There is a section of carved wood and they are absolutely beautiful! On Saturday and Sunday, there is a wood carving demonstration. Call for times. We purchased a beautiful bowl from him. Roger Tipton. There is a 100 year old log house outside you can walk in and check out. We spent about 2 hours in the museum.

We stumbled on this museum while stopping to pay for parking at Beaver’s Bend state park. We weren’t expecting it to be as big as it was. Really neat art displays and lots of information on forestry. They have a wood turners demonstration on Saturdays. We enjoyed walking through it prior to heading out to hike the trails of the park. Bonus was that it’s free.

This is the place if you just wanna get out of the busy stressful week. No cell signals no worries 😉 no tv or radio unless u want to bring one 😀. We stayed in the cabin inside the park and u can do a lot of activities everyday with your friends and family. It’s good for kids as well lots of activities they can do and it’s nice for everybody to be disconnected with gadgets and internet ♥️. The cabin is fully furnished with kitchen so u can just bring your own groceries. They have a restaurant inside the park as well or if u wanna drive 10 miles outside the park they have fast foods and local restaurants. It’s inexpensive to rent a cabin during off peak . I highly recommend this place and for sure we’ll come back.🙏♥️

The idea of the museum is to let you know about the foresting industry in the area and what has happened over time in that part of Oklahoma. It is OK, but nothing to write home about. The displays are still the same as they were 25 years ago so getting sort of old. There is a cabin and art to view inside the center of the museum which is basically a very large circle of a building with an outdoor section in the middle. It doesn't cost so worth doing at least once. Located inside the main building where the gift shop is.

Large circular museum with lots of exhibits about the forestry and logging in the area. It is free and unique but is pretty dated and could use some upgrades. Neat totem pole out front for pictures. The gift shop was completely emptied when we were there. Not sure if it was being renovated or what? Worth a walk through if you are at the state park!

We enjoyed touring and reading the history of the area, it was based on the logging industry. The pictures were great. The front desk staff was very helpful with information on hiking, etc.

Perfect stop over and a must visit. Displays are good, historical photos and the story of the logging are terrific. Grounds are a bit rough and the Tree Trail desperatly needs help. (it gets a 1 star)

Spent a day here. It was very interesting. A lot of nice exhibits highlighting the history of the area, and the history of the logging trade. Also a lot of historical artifacts and an art museum. Both inside and out it is a beautiful place. I really enjoyed my time here. And the staff was so friendly and helpful. A great visit.
