Hochatown State Park, Broken Bow

4.6
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.

  • This is a great park. The lake is beautiful with the surrounding hills and pine trees. The lake is extremely deep and the water is typically pretty calm. There are a ton of little coves to pull off in and swim or fish. There's also quite a few small islands you could pull off on with a pontoon. The summer is fairly hot and humid. It would probably be better to come in the early Spring or Fall. But I will be back here again!
  • Beautiful lake. Boat rentals are available for various types of boats. Pricing is reasonable and service is decent. Its a good idea to go in larger groups. Boat houses are also available for overnight stays. Fishing is an option. Scenery is beautiful. Warm is warm.
