Hochatown State Park is an Oklahoma state park in far-southeastern Oklahoma, north of the city of Broken Bow. It is a popular destination for tourists from Oklahoma and Texas interested in camping or boating on Broken Bow Lake.
Hochatown State Park is named after the small town of Hochatown. Present-day Hochatown is actually the second community in the area to bear the name. The original community was forced to relocate to its current location on U.S. Route 259 when Broken Bow Lake was created through the damming of Mountain Fork River by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in the late 1960s. Remnants of "Old Hochatown" can still be seen today while scuba diving at the bottom of Broken Bow Lake.
Originally part of Beavers Bend State Park, this adjacent state park is geared towards meeting the needs of visitors wishing to enjoy Broken Bow Lake. Accommodations inside the park range from the 40-room Lakeview Lodge to campsites in the Stevens Gap, Carson Creek and Cedar Creek areas. Recreation amenities and facilities include a fish cleaning station, group shelters and picnic sites, full and semi-modern RV campsites, primitive sites, comfort stations, sanitary waste stations, lighted boat ramps, swimming beaches, playgrounds, hiking trails. Other lodging choices at Beavers Bend State Park include 47 cabins and two group camps; some of which offer river views.

  • We took our corgi on Tree Trail. It was a pleasant hike that was relatively easy. There was a nice creek and the trail was easy to follow. We enjoyed walking around the camp ground as well.

  • Amazing place with great views. Rented one of the big house for 4 families on small pond. Place was amazing. Away from hustle and bustle of city, in middle of quite and serene nature. Went to Beavers Bend national park and did 2 mile hike day 1 and 4 mile hike day 2. All around running creek. It was a good family and friends Bonding time. Will visit again soon.
  • We camped at Grapevine along the river and oh my gosh was it stunning! Perfect amount of shade at the campsite with great river access. The water is perfect for paddling. It was chilly for my children but they loved it on a hot day. Side note: Bathrooms looked super rough. I suggest bringing your own travel potty.
