Beavers Bend is great, year-round. There is no denying that.
But there is a time that kicks off the busiest months of the year, and it’s spring break.
The warmth is returning. Beavers Bend State Park is getting some color back. The fishing is even better. Dogwoods are blooming. And the lake is just doing what it always does: taunting you with its general good looks.
Spring break is one of the most popular times to visit Beavers Bend – so if you’re considering a trip – jump on finding that cabin now.
Spring Break in Beavers Bend Tips
Book it now
For two weeks every March – schools in Oklahoma, Texas, and neighboring states have time off – and cabins fill up fast. Whether you’re going cozy or giant (some cabins can fit upwards of 30 people), you’ll need to jump on booking ahead, so you avoid missing out on any amenities.
Hire a Guide
Make your trip go even more smoothly, with an expert that can show you the ropes. And maybe crack some good jokes. From hiking guides to fishing guides, McCurtain has a host of experts to help you get more from your outdoor adventures.
Reserve your activities or rentals
Whether it’s kayaks or canoes, or horseback riding and ziplining, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. Snag your spots and your rentals ahead, and leave more room for the right kind of adrenaline – not the kind that comes from racing to find the last remaining paddle board.
Spring Things To Do
Tiki Boat Tours
Get to know Beavers Bend State Park and miles of Broken Bow Lake, by boat! These tours are a great way to see a lot, while enjoying the water.
Spring time is THE time to find the best fishing in McCurtain – head to spots like Mountain Fork River, which features a nearly four-mile trophy section. Beavers Bend is also home to big fishing spots like Glover River and Pine Creek Lake.
You don’t need to be an expert. Take in the trails of Beavers Bend State Park at whatever level suits your skills. If you’re a beginner, maybe head to Cedar Bluff and steer clear of Skyline Trail – although it’s gorgeous, it’s one of rougher trails, with several steep passes.
Pizza. Oysters. Steak. Fried tomatoes. BBQ. Ice cold hazy IPAs. Locally made wine. We suggest trying as many places as you can while you’re here. A food tour and beverage crawl perhaps (if you’re flying kid-free)?
