Two hundred feet above Beaver's Bend is crystal-clear Broken Bow Lake, a favorite of scuba divers and bass fishermen. Broken Bow Lake is one of the most picturesque settings in Oklahoma. There is 180 miles of pine-studded shoreline, and 14,220 acres of lake. Surrounding the island-dotted lake are plenty of RV and tent sites.

There have been several names before the name of Broken Bow. The first was Con Chito, the name of the Indain Village where the downtown business section is now located. The next was Newtown because a new town was forming with the establishment of the Choctaw Lumber Company and a influx of people who came to seek their fortunes. The Dierks brothers, Herman and Fred, were responsible for the permanent name of Broken Bow, naming it after Broken Bow, Nebraska, their home before coming to Oklahoma. The original town, consisting of 230 acres, was platted in 1911.

Three park areas located around the lake offer the public many opportunities for outdoor family fun and picnic areas, drinking water, restrooms, charcoal grills and boat launching ramps. The lake stretches 22 miles back into the Ouachita mountain country where its unusual beauty and scenic appeal beckons all nature enthusiasts. The mountain terrain is densely forested and there are many species of birds native to the area for birdwatchers to enjoy.

Numerous park areas located around the lake give the visitor an unmatched opportunity for outdoor family fun and relaxation. Recreational facilities include boat launching ramps, camping, picnic sites, beaches, water and sanitary facilities
