Nestled among the mountains of southeast Oklahoma, Broken Bow Reservoir is a 14,000-acre lake, 8 miles north the town of Broken Bow. The lake is strewn with islands, big and small, throughout the lake. There is 180 miles of shoreline to explore, much of it only accessible by boat. A few areas can be reached with 4-wheel drive vehicles and/or hiking, for fishing from the bank away from the crowds. Launch pleasure boats, pontoons and fishing boats using the multi-lane boat ramp at Beavers Bend Marina, or the smaller ramps at Coyote Drive Campsites, Beavers Bend Lakeview-Lodge and Carson Creek Recreation Area. A couple other more primitive areas will allow for launch of canoes and kayaks. Camping, lodging, boat rental, restaurants and a convenience store are all nearby the lake. Three species of bass are the primary target for anglers, but the lake also has notable populations of hybrid stripers, white bass, crappie, catfish and paddlefish.
