Unplug and unwind in a place where getting back to the real you is second nature. In McCurtain County, the rustic wifi will help you seek solitude. With the crisp, cool, clean air and miles and miles of natural beauty, you can clear your mind, body and soul. Find the freedom to experience all that the wilderness has to offer.

  1. Stay Active 

Working on your fitness is probably high on your list. Staying healthy can be hard, but not in McCurtain County. Our county is home to the Kiamichi Mountains, Beavers Bend State Park, Broken Bow Lake and the Lower Mountain Fork River, so staying active here is like second nature. With miles of hiking and biking trails and acres full of breathtaking beauty, we’re jam-packed with fun outdoor activities and opportunities to keep you moving.

  1. Learn A New Skill or Hobby 

Are you a firm believer that one should never stop learning? Then maybe you’re looking to gain a new skill or hobby in the year ahead. If so, you’re in luck in McCurtain County. Whether you want to learn fly fishing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, ziplining, axe throwing or much more, class is always in session here.

  1. More Face Time with Family and Friends 

The holidays often remind you how much you miss friends and family. And once the dust has settled from all the celebrating, you probably made a resolution to spend more quality time with the special people in your life. If so, McCurtain County has all the space you need to be closer together.  We have over 3,500 cabins ranging from Texas-sized to cozy. Whether you’re looking for something family-friendly or romance-ready, there’s something for everyone.

Whatever your New Year’s resolution, we’ll help you keep it. All you have to do is #GetHereAlready.



As a county, we’re continuing to do our part to help keep people healthy. From social distancing and keeping cabins squeaky clean to setting up hand-washing stations and offering To-Go services – the efforts to help you still get the most out of your time here, while being smart are going strong.

  • Don’t travel if you’re sick or have been around someone who has been. 
  • Wash, wash, wash those hands. Soap. Water. 20 seconds. Get creative with a song choice. Follow it up with some alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover that cough. Cover that sneeze. Preferably with a tissue, then throw it away. 
  • Keep it clean. From frequently touched objects to surfaces, be sure to clean and disinfect. 
  • Put distance between yourself and other people. Something we’re all good at out here in nature.

As always, stay healthy.
