Once you’ve booked your weekend cabin getaways with Broken Bow Cabin Lodging, you must create a packing checklist. The first thing you’ll want to do is scan over the amenities you’ll have in the specific cabin you’ve reserved. This way, you’ll have a jumping-off point of what will be provided. We’ve created a list of some items that you may find obvious but will be essential to anyone planning a vacation to Broken Bow, Oklahoma.

Durable Walking/Hiking Shoes

Even if you don’t plan on being outdoors, there’s a chance that your loved ones will want to explore during your weekend cabin getaways. Whether you’re out walking the trails in Beavers Bend State Park, or are setting up the campfire pit, you’ll want to have that pair of durable shoes along with you. 

Small Backpack

While you’re out hiking, you’ll want to have a small backpack to hold essential items as you’ll be in secluded areas on your adventures. It’s important to add these backpack items to your list: 

  • Area Map
  • Water Bottle
  • Bug spray
  • Snacks
  • First Aid Kit 
  • Sunscreen/Aloe Vera
  • Binoculars
  • Plastic Baggies (always a good idea)

Variety of Clothing

The weather is always subject to change when you’re out in the country, and we suggest being prepared for all scenarios. Even if you’re on Broken Bow Lake fishing in the summertime, you’ll want to bring a lightweight, white long sleeve to protect your skin against the sun for those long days on the lake. During winter, you’ll be surprised how warm it gets while exploring outside on a sunny day, which is why thin layers that you can remove are a must! Oh, and extra socks are always a good idea!

Campfire Essentials

As you’re sitting out by the fire pits on your weekend cabin getaways, it wouldn’t be right not to roast smores, hot dogs, and enjoy other fun campfire snacks. Having fun campfire snacks will keep your entire family happy while in Hochatown, OK. Bug spray is a must while you’re sitting around a fire and clothing that you don’t mind getting that campfire smell that we all love!

Extra Medications

It’s never a bad idea to have all of your medication on hand, and then some while staying at our Broken Bow vacation cabins. In addition to your prescriptions, you’ll also want to pack extra contacts or glasses if you can’t see without them! You never know what mishaps may happen while on your weekend cabin getaways, and you’ll want to be prepared for every scenario. 

Map and Directions

When you’re in a remote rural area such as Hochatown, OK, cell service may not be the best as you’re driving out in the country. Print out directions and have a map on hand is not only a good idea but a smart one. As silly as it may seem to have a turn by turn with miles, street names, and navigation, you’ll be thanking yourself when you find yourself without service. We also feature a print-friendly Maps page on our website that will give you a layout with cabin locations as well as popular area destinations such as Beavers Bend State Park, Kaniatobe trails, and Broken Bow Lake.
