Lucky #7 takes us to Broken Bow, Oklahoma. Reminiscing about this beautiful place is definitely getting my mind, body and soul ready for this future return. Remembering the beautiful fall colors of the tall trees and the breeze coming off the water, has my mind on the perfect full moon weekend away this fall. Bree and I went on her first Broken Bow experience during the winter months and it is past time we take her for her first fall experience here. There are so many beautiful points on the lake and fantastic mountain trails to hike. YES, I said ‘mountain’ trails, I know Oklahoma isn’t known for it’s mountains, and they aren’t your typical northern mountains, but they are mountains, small, but still…mountains!

There are tons of options for camping in the state parks, in various coves and different areas of the lake, with many different activities at the parks, like zip lining, hiking trails, fishing, some restaurants, museums, all the normal lake offerings and even a train ride for the kiddos. With primitive camping to full RV camping options and even various cabins there were offerings for all types of campers. The camping spots were really nice with a picnic table, fire ring, BBQ grill and water spigot and level areas to set up. We had the electrical hookup in the RV section and thought the set up of the camping spots was pretty easy. The bathrooms are standard issue state park bathrooms, very minimal.
With amenities like a winery, coffee shop and brewery nearby and some pretty tempting restaurants dotting the highway even the camper that doesn't want to rough it so much can be satisfied too. We had the most amazing brisket at a bar and grill called the Blue Moon Tower. It was so much food that it was actually two damn fine meals! We visited the local winery Girls Gone Wine, did a tasting and took in the super cute gift shop.
So I hope I’ve given you many great reasons to visit Broken Bow. I’m off to call Bree and set up our revisit for the very near future! Cheers!
