Football season. It’s a magical time of the year, with breakout stories, sudden underdog heroes, and the inevitable disappointment for all but one team. The only thing that could make it better? Catching the next big game in a luxury cabin.
Football season in Beavers Bend Cabin Country means blending highlight worthy plays, with the picturesque pines of Southeast Oklahoma. Located in the heart of the SEC and Big 12, Cabin Country is the perfect reunion spot for alumni and old rivals alike. Toast every touchdown with a locally brewed beer, satisfy your halftime hunger with a brisket from the nearby smokery, or show off your gridiron skills while the kids toast hot dogs over the campfire. And if your team’s play calling has you questioning your sanity, serenity can be found just outside in the peaceful Ouachita National Forest. In this blog, we’ll go over everything you need to know to make your tailgate a victory.
Load up on the gameday grub
Somebody forgot to bring the meats and now you need to call an audible? No sweat. Broken Bow, Idabel and Hochatown are just down the road. For fresh steaks and all the fixins, Local 259, and Mountain Man Meat Market can make sure you’ve got the choicest cuts for your choicest friends. And Pruett’s Food in Broken Bow, along with several other grocers, has the essentials like chips, dips, snacks and buns. Here you can also fill up your cooler with ice.
Turn your cabin into America’s most scenic stadium
Before you check-in, look over everything your cabin has to offer to make the most of your trip. Most cabins have spacious windows, and large screen tvs. Combining both brings in a beautiful panorama of the forest landscape behind you, with the game in front. It’s a view that would put Kidd Brewer Stadium to shame. With outdoor entertainment options, consider holding your tailgate on the patio. After all, what’s better than trading in the scent of exhaust and asphalt of a traditional tailgate, for the fresh Kiamichi Mountain air? And for you culinary enthusiasts, many cabins feature a full chefs kitchen so you can prep up your meals with big budget gadgets to make you feel like a powerhouse program.
No tailgate is complete without the drinks
If you want to immerse your tailgate with local flavor, there’s two local breweries for you to choose from – Mountain Fork Brewery and Beavers Bend Brewery. Beavers Bend Brewery sells sealed growlers and Mountain Fork Brewery has cans to-go. Cabin Country is also home to four wineries and a distillery if you need something to cope after a bad L. There’s also plenty of lemonade and sodas for the kids or anyone looking for non-alcoholic options.
Halftime and post game entertainment
Is there such thing as ‘too much football’? You can certainly try to find out. Everyone knows Saturdays are for college and Sundays are for the pros. Of course, there’s much more to do than just football in Beavers Bend Cabin Country.
When you’re needing a break from the action, make the most of your stay. Most cabins have large outdoor areas to play a game of pickup football, horseshoes, cornhole, foosball, and more. Then let the hot tub relax your tension from watching all those nail biters and near upsets.
If you’re feeling cooped up from all the screen time, there’s plenty to do around you. Go crunch some leaves on a quick hike. Take a break from the cooking and go out for a meal. There’s a whole heap of things for you and your family to do to make your getaway as active or as lazy as you want.
