Forget the deadlines. Ditch the routine. Unplug, sort of.
And head to Beavers Bend for the ultimate guy’s trip.
Whether it’s a bachelor party, a father-son getaway, or even a business trip, McCurtain has enough outdoor activities and luxury cabin amenities to check off something for everyone.
First things first. Book a log cabin that exceeds your usual camping expectations. Need a grill that would make a pitmaster proud? Check. Outdoor fire pit? Done. Pool table? Yep, we have that, too. There are thousands of cabins to choose from – so make searching easy and start narrowing it down by your number of guys and must-have amenities. Roughing it in Beavers Bend sometimes looks like a flat-screen TV, game room, and hot tub. Whether you are looking for two bedrooms or 10, you’ll find something.
Balance out all that cabin luxury with some outdoor time exploring Southeastern Oklahoma. Beavers Bend offers tons of activities like hunting the variety of native game in the Three Rivers Wildlife Management, fishing in the Lower Mountain Fork River, hiking through Beavers Bend State Park, hitting the greens at Cedar Creek Golf Course and making the forest your freeway on an ATV. Need help planning activities? Consider hiring a guide to ensure your fishing excursion isn’t a flop. If it’s hunting that’s bringing crew together, the countless acres of public land in Beavers Bend make it the ideal destination. Make sure to review all fees and regulations before arriving so your trip is as stress free as possible.
Just in case outdoor activities aren’t your thing, we have some indoorsy ones, too. Switch things up by heading over to Thomahawk’s to discover your axe-throwing abilities. Whether you are a pro or a newbie like the rest of us, their onsite coaches will help you master the proper technique and gameplay.
Too adventurous? Relax and enjoy time with friends while investigating the local drink scene. Beavers Bend is home to a number of locally-sourced breweries, wineries, and a distillery. Amp up your experience and make sure you hit the hot spots with a beverage crawl. Pro tip: Hoppin’ Jalapeno Ale at Beaver’s Bend Brewery and Sneaky Snake at Mountain Fork Brewery are fan favorites.
A mancation isn’t complete without some mouthwatering food options. Beavers Bend is full of restaurants for any mood. Some go-tos include grabbing a casual bite at Grateful Head Pizza or treating yourself to a steak dinner at Abendigo’s Grill and Patio. Visit with your friends and locals alike while catching a game at The Blue Rooster, and enjoying some killer fried chicken and fried green tomatoes.
If you are tired of eating out or prefer to stay in, a night on the grill is always a crowd pleaser. Get some grilling inspiration with our top choices. No need to waste time grocery shopping. Stock your cabin with food using Pruett’s online ordering and curbside pickup services.
Yes, you read that right. Gather the guys for a night out on the town at Hochatown Saloon for some live music and drinks. The saloon hosts local and touring bands and DJs every weekend. Be sure to check out their website to see what’s going on during your trip. Abendigo’s, Shuck Me, Mountain Fork Brewery, Grateful Head and Choctaw Casino (the list goes on) also regularly host live music nights.
