Broken Bow Lake was created in the 1960's as the Mountain Fork river was dammed up. It forced the community of Hochatown to relocate to it's present day location, just north of Beavers Bend Resort Park. It is a clear, clean, and magnificent lake that stretches over 20 miles into the Ouchita and Kimichi wilderness. The lake consists of more than 14,000 acres and 180 miles of shoreline.With it's pristine shimmer, the water attracts travelers year round. As for activities, guests of the lake will never fall short of finding something to do. Fishing, boating, jet skiing, scuba diving, parasailing, swimming, water skiing, and visiting one of the many islands shores, are all enjoyed time and time again.
Broken Bow Lakes shoreline is all natural. No docks or permanently connected structures are allowed. The shore is managed by the Corps of Engineers. The only area where you will find such buildings are at the one and only marina and the State Park's Lake View Lodge. Fishing at the lake is rapidly becoming a favorite of vacationers and locals alike. There are many species of fish found in the lake. They include largemouth Bass, small mouth bass, channel catfish, crappie, walleye, spotted bass, and white bass. Fishing guides can make your outings more enjoyable and productive.
