This was a fun place to be. There are about 5 RV campground throughout the whole park, only one is reservable. As far as I could tell, only the handicap sites had FHU. That said, my site was one the river, nice view and fun. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Motorhome.

7 months on the road, this is one of the top 5 or 10 campgrounds we've stayed at. Beautiful river side campsite amongst the trees. Long back in site where we didn't have to unhook for one nite. Downside was no sewer, cell or satellite reception. Amazing view from dining room table of river. Would definitely return. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were there after the season was over, so the Rail Road, Float Trips, Pony Rides and all were closed for the season. The camping was still nice. We started out in #6 Loop B (Buckeye) which was right on the river. This site you can reserve online so this is why we got it. We were there a day early because we were ready to hit the road, and on day 2 we were just getting all setup when a Park Employee came to tell us that B Loop didn't have 'freeze proof' water hookups, so they were going to have to turn off the water. "How long?" "Until it stops freezing." It was forecasted to stop 4 days later. Normally you can't move Loops without losing your money you paid on the reservation. ProTip: Only reserve one or 2 nights get the lay of the land and move if you find a better spot. If you like the spot you have, then just keep paying. We moved to A Loop (Acorn) and took site #44 which is on the river, at the end of the run, so you have lots of room and only one neighbor. There is a walk trail that comes out near Campsite #44 but it is not that troublesome. In season with people all over, it might be more of an issue. There are no Full-Hookup's (caveat is handicap) but all sites on A and D Loop have Water/Electric, with A Loop having 30 and 50 amp. All sites have Fire Rings, Picnic Tables and the showers are acceptable, but they are Pay showers, Quarters only, 7.5min for $1.25, max of 15 quarters, so what, 21min. The hot water worked well, but the shower heads were junky at best. Only the Handicap Shower had a toilet in it. Showers in B and C Loop are newer, and the A Loop are very old. We used the C Loop showers, which was just a walk up the hill. All in all, it was a neat place to go and we did have some luck with fishing, but below the small lower dam, you can't keep anything under 20" for trout. And of course this is where I caught 15-18 (lost count) Brown Trout just about 1 mile down river walking. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Another interesting thing is all the Bigfoot embracement, stand up Bigfoot cut-outs, and the fact that Broken Bow has more Bigfoot sittings than anywhere else in the US. Check park information for when they close the Train, Boat Rentals, and such. The restaurant is open all year.

I grew up in Broken Bow and Buckeye campground is one of my favorite camping sites in the world. We usually camp in the early spring and late fall (during the week) to avoid the crowds. This campground is located on Mountain Fork River just downstream from the dam and spillway of Broken Bow Lake. The campground is monitored by an onsite attendant that is very nice and helpful... it is clean and shaded and the view of the river is just amazing. We come here to RELAX!!! :) Rainbow trout are found in the river and on a good day you can catch your limit easily. The best fishing is just a few miles away directly below the spillway. If you are looking for a great quite vacation, this is the place to be. :) We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Broken Bow Lake is a must see... crystal clear water and the lake is over 180 feet deep in the river channel. Beautiful!! Many hiking trails... I suggest hiking down the trail just past the spillway going into the park for great photo ops with the family. Lots of new restaurants in the area if you want to eat out. Overall I give this park a 10+++++!!! A great get-away!!!

Lovely State Park in far south east Oklahoma. It is a little confusing getting around, so if you can get a map online before you go, it would help you get around. There are 4 RV campgrounds here, Buckhorn (reservable) Acorn, Cypress and Fern. Fern is on a different section of the river and the only area that you can get into the water. This is where we stayed. Campground was very far spaced apart, even for a state park. Tall trees kept the sun and heat at bay, the cool river was awesome to jump in after a hike. The previous inhabitants of our site left it kind of dumpy, but not horrible. The bath/shower house was clean, however, they are OLD. Water pressure was intermittent in the showers. Lots of hiking trails and wildlife, a herd of deer wandered throughout the campground the entire time we were here, coming as close as 5-10 feet sometimes! We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

There is a "float trip" company that for a reasonable fee, (2 person $24, single $14) you can float down this nice cold river on a hot Oklahoma day for a couple hours. As well, there is a trail that takes you on a short <1 mile hike up a step hill to the top of a bluff that overlooks this river. Very gorgeous and worth the climb (plus, you go downhill after!)

Exceptionally nice state park. When you arrive at the main office, you can either go up the hill to the spillway area or continue down the river to the lower campsites. Going up, there are many unserviced campsites in three sections, half can take a larger rig and some are right on the water for $14. There are 15 non reservable campsites with water and electric. The upper area has paddle boats & canoes for rent, tackle shop, boat launch, easy lake access, miniature train, stables and a lodge. The lower section ends at the old dam that is like a waterfall and very pretty. The lower area has a good restaurant (We loved the fried pie!), nature centre, a museum of forestry, a gift shop and three camping sections Buckthorn, is reservable, Acorn and Cypress are not. Acorn and Buckthorn are all spacious and on the water for $27. There are also five sites specifically designed to accommodate the handicapped above Acorn. Cypress is non reservable, away from he water and has many very narrow turns and all back in sites, When we were there, it was wet and muddy on either side of the narrow roads. We did not get stuck but we saw other longer rigs that did sink right to the jacks because they could not make the tight turns without going off the roads and into the muck. The sites are close together and set at haphazard angles so you don't have much privacy. Our site was, like most, short and we had to unhitch to fit in. $24 but we got $2 off as nonresident seniors. The area below the dam has lots of tempting rocks to climb on and it looks perfect for wading. It isn't. There are sirens that go off to announce water level changes at the dam and they are big changes. A man comes around selling snow cones for $2-3 and they are the best snow cones I have ever had so try one. We might go again if we can get a reservation first and it isn't spring break. The campsite was completely full during our visit. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

While 249a loops around and on the map it appears possible to access the park from either north or south, a flood took out the road from the north near the spillway so you can only come in on the south entrance. Too bad because the south road has lots of steep up and down hills. We enjoyed our dinner at the little restaurant and the fried pie was to die for. The gift shop was also very good with a neat selection.

Beavers Bend State Park is eight miles north of Broken Bow, Oklahoma in the Kiamichi mountains.
It was constructed by the CCC in the 30's. Great hiking and scenery.
The park has four camping loops for RV's all with 30A electric and water. Some sites with great views of the Mountain Fork river. Only Buckeye Loop (B loop) allows site specific reservations.
We were in river front site 12 in Buckeye Loop. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We were only here for 2 nights, so we didn't fully explore the park. The section we were in wasn't crowded, so it was very quiet. Groceries are close, and a few eateries if you need them. Golf course and marina right there, so I imagine it gets busy in the summer- still should be a great place to be even if it's crowded.

One electric loop, with a new bathhouse. No swimming allowed at river in front of campground and old electric grid wouldn't allow for a 10, although an engaging and attentive park host was a bonus. ATT seemed to work better than Verizon for a change. Lots of shade makes for bearable summer camping. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It was a little confusing to find but once we did we had a great time. They only have 41 sites that they reserve and that area is called Buckeye so that is the only area I can review. Very big and beautiful is how I would describe this place. The sites were concrete and level with a patch of ground that was mostly level, a picnic table, fire ring, grill and lantern post which we used as a trash bag hanger instead. There is a street light situated so that every 3-4 sites have light so we didn't need our lantern at all. Lots of shade--all sites are under a canopy of 70 foot trees all trimmed high and nice. The water was only about 200 feet away with very clear view. The only reasons I didn't give it a 10 were no over the air TV reception. Even if you had DirecTV the tree canopy would stop that. No Wi-Fi, no phone service. We plan to return again later We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We went at the end of winter and had a super time. We camped on the interior loop near the river but not riverfront. It was in the woods and we could walk to the river. Nearby playground and open field for playing ball was a big hit with the kids. Also pretty creeks to walk by scenic views of the cliffs along the fork river. Quite a wind comes off the river so not recommended to be riverfront in winter. Had no TV channels and no cell service/WiFi so we were forced to be technology free and enjoy the outdoors. Looked to have lots to do in summer months but most activities were spread out from campsite so would probably have to drive to swim, ride horses etc. We will go back!

We stayed at Fern campground, but we drove through all the RV sites at Beavers Bend State Park. Fern, Acorn and Buckeye are the RV campgrounds with electricity & water, but none have sewer. Fern sits up higher on the banks of the Little Mt. River and is closer to the "Beavers Bend" of the river and has very huge sites (practically four sites to one RV), while both Buckeye and Acorn are more level with the river, further downstream and spaced a little tighter. Both parks get A+ on views. Fern was very hard to get into (we're 26') because of the road culvert in relation to the site. Recommend Fern for shorter RV's (if you're a pro a fifth-wheel, but very hard for a motor home in Fern). While Acorn and Buckeye can handle both easily. All three sites I had 3 or 4 bars on my AT&T, while DH's (Dear/Damned Honey/Husband) Verizon had no bars. Warning: the local provider is stingy with service and although AT&T gets bars, there's a limit, go over it and the local provider will kick you off. I took a look at the showers, and they were clean, but old and in need of update (this is reason for 9 rating and not 10). Rate reflects old-folks discount. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sorely disappointed in so many ways with this park that our group of four rv's stayed one night and left the next day. Muddy, cramped, tight, overgrown sites. Mosquito's such that we couldn't sit outside. No cell, sat or cable or OTA tv service. I scratched my brand new rv getting in and/or out... (couldn't tell until after I got it washed it was so muddy!) but I was lucky - saw damaged trees right on the inside of the narrow turns that must have taken out some rv's ! We won't go back - but I will temper this review saying we haven't done the tent thing in 30 years - not into that any longer. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The main attraction to this park is the natural beauty of the area. Facilities are old and there is no sewer hookup available. Fixtures in restrooms and showers were clean, but walls and floors have accumulated dirt, spider webs, etc. Only 31 sites can be reserved and there is nothing on website showing how to do this. Staff was friendly, but could only tell us which area we were in - not which site was reserved for us. We had to drive until we found our name on a post. No TV, Wi-Fi or cell reception. We camped at Beaver's Bend State Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.
