Contact Hochatown Pontoon and Boat Rentals for an awesome experience on the lake. The lake was clean and not overcrowded on a weekday. We enjoyed exploring various areas of the lake, floating in inflatables, jumping off rocks into lake, and tubing. Beautiful scenery!

this lake is what this place is about. you go to beavers bend state park for the lake. they have some trails/ there were alot of people there, when we went. but, it may have also had something to do with covid and people wanting to get out. everyone needs to be aware of the parking pass, which started in july2020. you can do it online or on your phone. you don't get a paper for it, it is in their sysyem. we saw many tickets issued for not having one.. if you are parked, you have to have one. the park is scattered, so you drive alot, but you can see the lake. they have sirens that go off, due to high water. you don't know where the water is getting high at, so it's kind of annoying. they probably have it to be on the safe side.

The lake is huge with many places to swim, fish, picnic, camp, etc. . . . The water is clear, the property is well maintained and the facilities are clean. Great place to take the family. You can hire a fishing guide, rent a boat, rent a cabin, visit the museum, eat at Foggy Bottom. You will enjoy your visit.

This is a beautiful area in rural Oklahoma and Fall was the perfect time to visit! My husband and I just took our dog and spent a weekend here in a rental cabin and had a great little getaway.
The lake is huge and there are many entrances to the park with different amenities at each place. We spent a lot of time just walking the shoreline, hiking trails, and enjoying the scenery. Deer were everywhere! It was a nice vacay away from crowds and the Covid-19 pandemic. Great for all ages and activity levels.

Met our guide (Bryce A.) at Lakeview Lodge at 7am on a Saturday morning. The lake was unbelievably beautiful. Very calm at that time of the morning. Too bad we didn't have any skis! WE proceeded to catch walleye, striped bass and sand bass. We had a wonderful time with Bryce. We have fish stories!

Broken Bow Lake is a beautiful spot to escape and enjoy nature in eastern Oklahoma. We hiked several of its trails and saw its rushing rapids. There are water sports available plus nearby cabins and campgrounds for lodging. Definitely worth a trip if you love the outdoors.

Beautiful lake and very warm water. Wear water shoes, even the beach is very rocky. Was a deep lake too - so we could anchor the boat on shore and still jump off the back of the boat and be plenty deep. We put the boat in at the dock opposite of the main marina - was very easy to get in and out.

This lake is very big and must be rocky bottom because it was so clear you could see the end of your feet. Beautiful shoreline. We found a little cove and swam around and my son skipped rocks from one side to the other - about 50 yards. Great fun!

We rented a cabin nearby and cane to the lake to enjoy swimming and views. There’s a ton of commercial things for the kids to do but we were here for a short time.
To swim: drive out past the beaver bend marina and follow your gps to the end of the peninsula. There’s some gorgeous swimming spots along the way. Peaceful and empty, just float and enjoy the views.

Broken Bow Lake is beautiful! The water is nice and clean, the shoreline is scenic no matter where you look. There are so many fun little islands in the lake. Make sure you stop at Overlook Circle lookout and hike down on the rock. It is gorgeous down there. We enjoyed the warm lake water as opposed to the cold river waters for swimming.
