Rent a boat and go out on the lake, fly fish in Mountain Fork River, fish for bass, whitewater, canoe, hike, horseback ride, hunt, ride ATVs or play a round of golf.
Broken Bow Lake, Mountain Fork River & Beavers Bend Park
Broken Bow Lake is a rock bottom lake, making it a beautiful place to visit on hike or on a boat. Either bring your own boat, or rent one on site. The lake spans more than 14,000 acres, but winds through the forest to create a peaceful expansion of clear water to fish for bass, ski or just float around the lake and admire the beautiful rock cliffs. Without venturing into the lake itself, you can pack a picnic and enjoy the nature around you with over 175 miles of shoreline. On the lake you will find big bass, black, white, spotted, large and smallmouth bass; you can also find walleye, crappie, and channel catfish.
One of my favorite things to do is hike around Mountain Fork River. It winding trails seem endless and is a fly fisherman’s paradise with year round opportunities to snag rainbow trout. If you head to the Upper part of Mountain Fork River, you will find an abundance of smallmouth bass. The Lower Mountain Fork River is great for kayaking or canoeing.
Beavers Bend Park offers a variety of activities for adults and children including golf, fly fishing clinics, guided horseback rides, miniature golf, paddle boats
The nature center offers campfire programs on the banks of the Mountain Fork River, nature hikes, arts and crafts, water sports, bingo, sunset hikes, nature films and astronomy outings. Eagle watches are available from November through February.
ATV riding is available in the area. For more information about riding ATV please reference the website www.fs.usda.gov/ouchita
