What you see here, is what you get. This region of the beautiful Kiamichi Mountains is Oklahoma’s best kept secret. Many people have no idea that Oklahoma contains this type of scenery and landscape, which is similar to the Ozark and Smoky Mountains of Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee.
Broken Bow Lake – Solitude you can appreciate
Deep in the mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma is a mountain lake born in 1963 that is surrounded by national forests, state parks, clear running streams and the kind of solitude that has to be experienced to be truly appreciated. There are many tourist attractions in this area such as trout fishing, hiking trails, festivals, novelty shopping, playing golf, and of course numerous water activities available on the lake. Broken Bow Lake is unique with no waterfront properties allowed so the beauty of the scenic environment remains majestic.
The Lower Mountain Fork River – Total Serenity
This scenic area is known for its serenity of lazy days, as well as its fun-filled environment for many popular outdoor activities. Originating from Broken Bow Lake, the water stays cool, and is typically clear and inviting. Among the numerous trees and foliage throughout the area, the banks of the river feature Cypress trees and Bamboo forests. The wildlife is abundant with beautiful birds and occasional sightings of Bald Eagles. The picturesque beauty of the river can be observed differently by the time of day or year. And look to the sky on a clear night. The stars and spectacular!!!
My Cabins – Lifetime Memories
So do you want Waterfront and cannot find it in the Broken Bow Area? Would you like a self-contained cabin that could host medium size to large groups? Riverbend Lodge and Madison Moose Cabins are your answers! Located on the Lower Mountain Fork River @ the Wild Goose Canoe Take Out (the 19th hole for reference to you golfers like me), you have the best of both worlds when visiting the Broken Bow area. The Serenity of staying on The River, and being less than 30 minutes from Beavers Bend and Broken Bow Lake, gives you more choices for year round fun than you can imagine. Bottomline, once you have stayed here, you will always come back. Repeat guests have annually visited my cabins over the past 10 years.
Located 10 minutes from the heart of Broken Bow (or Walmart), this secluded area is perfect for families with kids for swimming, fishing, canoeing or kayaking. You can explore the Bamboo forest, jump off the rope swing, have large campfires, dine and party off the large back deck overlooking the river. From the minute you wake up until late hours in the evening, there is always something to do. Or not. If you don’t want to do anything, this place is also perfect for you. Go for a walk, take a nap, have a cup of coffee on your deck, or just watch the river go by. The property is secluded and has 4 acres to spread out on.
Overall, The Lodge is a real treat for family gatherings, reunions, church groups, or just for a group of friends and/or families. Lifetime memories are made here. So if you have not stayed here, then you are truly missing out. The kids will miss the place when they leave. Guranteed!!!
For those of you who want to book the whole property, there is an adjoining lot for campers or camping (say for the Boy Scouts) while the adult leaders stay in The Lodge. And having the Madison Moose cabin on the same property gives you all kinds of possibilities for say a Captain’s Hut, a place for the grandparents, or just a place for yourself. The Madison Moose cabin is quite often rented separately, and there have been no complaints between the two.
After all is said and done, this is a family atmosphere and I expect you to have a great time, as long as it is not at the expense of others. I have a great management team that will assist you promptly with your concerns or needs. And I stand behind these cabins and everything I have said here. So if you have any questions or concerns that are not answered by my superb management team, or would just like to visit about the cabins and/or Broken Bow area with some guidance, call me @ 972-523-9155.
I hope you have a great time.
