Summer Beavers Bend flooding update

Summer Beavers Bend Flooding Update…

Warm weather is finally here and we’ve just added a fresh coat of stain to all three levels of the Mountain Vista deck.

Broken Bow luxury cabins continue to be very busy despite the recent flooding. Officials are anticipating that Beavers Bend State Park and Broken Bow Lake will reopen within the next few weeks.

Kurt Adams, Superintendent at Cedar Creek Golf Course in Beavers Bend tells me 11 holes will reopen tomorrow. The remaining seven holes will be available when the water subsides.

Summer In Beavers Bend flooding update

The heavy rainfall has produced thousands of baby pine trees on our acreage at Mountain Vista…they’re scattered everywhere!

June and July bookings are packed at Mountain Vista. Other than June 10-11, we only have the 29th and 30th available this month. The only multi-day reservation open next month is July 6-8.

Scores of people are frantically working to get Broken Bow Lake and Beavers Bend State Park back in shape. The annual Kiamichi Owa-Chito-Festival of the Forest has been moved to the Broken Bow City Park due to the recent flooding.

Remember to do your homework before choosing a luxury cabin in Beavers Bend. Watch for hidden charges for cleaning, insurance, resort fees and firewood. We never gouge guests with these extra bills at Mountain Vista. Many times these fees can add over 20% to your cabin reservation fee.

We created the Beavers Bend app several years ago to enhance your stay while vacationing in Southeastern Oklahoma. Our app gives you local tourist information and our recommendations for places to eat, drink and be merry in Broken Bow. It’s a free download and we occasionally have exclusive “App Only” offers. It also features a link to my Beavers Bend News/Blog.

I appreciate all the great feedback over the past several weeks regarding my Broken Bow flood reporting. Thousands read my blog each month but traffic has picked up significantly recently as people are searching for information.

Fan our Facebook page and the Beavers Bend State Park group page I created years ago. Thanks for reading and make your plans to visit Broken Bow, OK!
