Discover the Natural Beauty of Southeastern Oklahoma

If Oklahoma brings to mind vast plains and grasslands, you might be surprised to learn about the existence of forests and mountains in southeast Oklahoma. A vacation to the region gives you an opportunity to get away from it all and get back to nature. Autumn visits are sure to please with fall foliage displays that rival those seen further east. Revive and unwind while hiking, paddling or fishing, then return to peaceful lodgings at Beavers Bend Resort Park cabins.

Hiking Trails

You will find a plethora of hiking trails in Beavers Bend State Park. While a majority of the trails are rated easy to moderate, the 8.6-mile Skyline Loop offers a challenge for more experienced hikers. Grab a trail map with ratings and reviews to find the perfect hiking paths for your trip, whether you are looking for a short, casual stroll or a heart-pumping full-day trek.

Kayaking or Canoeing

The clear, cool waters of the Mountain Fork River make it a perfect place for your kayak or canoe outing. Paddle your way through tall stands of trees and along rocky hillsides. Stop for a picnic and a snooze on the shores. You can find anything from 4-mile trips to multi-day expeditions for whatever floats your boat!


The 14,000-acre Broken Bow Lake is surrounded by the forested Kiamichi Mountains. The entire site is managed by the Army Corps of Engineers, so you will be rewarded with unbroken views of natural beauty while out on a fishing boat excursion in the middle of the lake. Hire a guide to find the best locations to toss your line on this large body of water.

Eastern Oklahoma offers a beautiful setting for a quick getaway or a longer vacation. You will find plenty of outdoor activities to rejuvenate or relax. Set your sights on something new and plan your next holiday getaway to Broken Bow, OK.

Top Beach Destinations on my Mind

There are a lot of beach destinations that can be visited in different parts of the globe but there are a few places that I want to check in the next few years or so. Traveling may be expensive but I am willing to save up just to see some nice places that will give me wonderful memories to remember.


  1. Kuta Bali Beach

If you are planning to visit Indonesia then you should visit this wonderful beach. Indonesia is an archipelago made out of different islands with different beaches but Kuta Bali Beach is the best choice if you want a party – centric atmosphere and if you are fond of surfing. I am not a pro but I will enjoy catching the waves that this destination has to offer.

  1. Kamalame Cay, Bahamas

It is a known fact that the Bahamas is one of the best places to visit especially for people who are fond of being near the beach. Kamalame Cay is a private spot that I want to visit someday. It is 15 minutes away by air from Nassau. Just thinking about the crystal blue waters surrounding the island is enough to make me wonder how nice it would be to stay there for a certain period of time.

  1. Railay Beach, Thailand

Known for the high limestone cliffs, Railay Beach is one of the places that I like to visit. This is a very peaceful island that I will surely have a grand time exploring especially because it is serene and beautiful. This can only be accessed by boat so this makes it more remote than other beaches.

  1. Navagio Beach, Greece

Greece is known to be a wonderful and mystical place that a lot of tourists would love to visit but I am highly interested in checking out Navagio Beach which is located in a cove in Zakynthos. This is a beach that is also known as shipwreck beach.

  1. Whitehaven Beach, Australia

This is one legendary beach that I want to visit soon because of how heavenly it looks. The very white sand seems to mix with the crystal blue ocean. There are times when the water looks almost turquoise from a far. I would not mind swimming here even if people are requested to watch out for sharks.

These are just a few of the beaches that I want to visit soon. There are still a lot more that I will also check out once I have reached the different destinations mentioned above.
