The beauty of Beavers Bend Resort Park is that one is free to explore on one's own or to join in group activities - or to try a little of both. Visitors can choose eagle watches (November through February), trout fishing, fly-fishing clinics, guided horseback rides on scenic trails, or hayrides throughout the park.

A year-round naturalist and a well-stocked nature center make possible a program lineup that includes campfire programs on the banks of the Mountain Fork River, nature hikes, arts and crafts classes and nature films. In the park's Riverbend area water lovers can find yakanoes (a combination kayak and canoe), paddle boats, canoes, and sandy beaches with roped off swim areas. "The clear waters of the 14,000-acre Broken Bow Lake are also a favorite haunt of scuba divers. Other park diversions: golfing, miniature golf, tennis, jet skiing (rentals available), bumper boat rides, boating (party barge rentals available), and canoeing (rentals available).
 

Beavers Bend Resort Park also draws the serious hiker. Its David Boren Trail offers 16 miles of hiking trails with 4 miles of multi-purpose (mountain bike) trails that wander along ridge tops, over creek bottoms, through tall stands of timber, and into areas so remote one can almost experience what early-day explorers must have felt upon seeing the Quachita National Forest for the first time. Good news for the not-so-serious hiker: the same trail can also be divided into a variety of short and long hikes.
