2. Girls Gone Wine

Girls Gone Wine is a dream come true for owners Chandra Rickey, Michelle Finch and Rhonda Reed! It all started on a road trip to Dallas where the three friends visited a fun winery where you could make your own wine. They made a couple of batches and returned to the tourism area of Broken Bow/Hochatown and said, "Hmmmmmm.....that would be a fun thing to do here! Why not?!" Twelve years later the girls have become the largest production winery in Oklahoma!

On April Fools Day, 2006 the girls opened the doors to Girls Gone Wine and have been having a blast ever since! The vibe at Girls Gone Wine is intentionally fun, fun, fun and the experience of a good fun time begins at the front door and is carried out throughout.

Tastings are always complimentary and the gift shop is OUT OF CONTROL with so much fun merchandise you just can't leave without a bag full of must have gift items.

The patio is a favorite hang out for visitors and in 2018 the newly constructed VIP tasting room with patio will open! Currently the winery sales wine at their Broken Bow winery/tasting room and ships wine to nearly 30 states but in 2018 we can finally ship to Oklahomans---YAY! Finally!!

Make plans to visit Girls Gone Wine, enjoy a glass of locally produced wine, tour our production facility and shop, shop, shop! Open 7 days a week except for select holidays.

4. Beavers Bend State Park

Hochatown State Park is an Oklahoma state park in far-southeastern Oklahoma, north of the city of Broken Bow. It is a popular destination for tourists from Oklahoma and Texas interested in camping or boating on Broken Bow Lake.
Hochatown State Park is named after the small town of Hochatown. Present-day Hochatown is actually the second community in the area to bear the name. The original community was forced to relocate to its current location on U.S. Route 259 when Broken Bow Lake was created through the damming of Mountain Fork River by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in the late 1960s. Remnants of "Old Hochatown" can still be seen today while scuba diving at the bottom of Broken Bow Lake.
Originally part of Beavers Bend State Park, this adjacent state park is geared towards meeting the needs of visitors wishing to enjoy Broken Bow Lake. Accommodations inside the park range from the 40-room Lakeview Lodge to campsites in the Stevens Gap, Carson Creek and Cedar Creek areas. Recreation amenities and facilities include a fish cleaning station, group shelters and picnic sites, full and semi-modern RV campsites, primitive sites, comfort stations, sanitary waste stations, lighted boat ramps, swimming beaches, playgrounds, hiking trails. Other lodging choices at Beavers Bend State Park include 47 cabins and two group camps; some of which offer river views.

5. Fish Tales Winery & Vineyards

Discovered by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1584, the muscadine is considered to be America’s first grape, but it may be better known as the “grape of the south”. Muscadine vines can be found along forgotten country roadsides, in the occasional opening of an overgrown forest, or sometimes at an abandoned homestead. When late summer arrives, you may find your neighbor off the front porch and in the woods searching for this juicy black grape to make jelly and homemade wine. We invite you to enjoy one of the same discoveries of our settlers.

Fish Tales Winery's Grand Opening is currently scheduled for March 12, 2016. We are located across from the main entrance to Beaver's Bend Park in what was Three Rivers Fly Shop in the beautiful Hochatown tourist area.

Keep checking back for our progress and updates, along with the addition of an online store for your convenience.

A variety of wines will be offered, including Muscadines from our own vineyards: Red, White, Sweet, Semi-Sweet, and Semi-Dry. Non-alcoholic Juice will be available and can be used in a variety of different ways. A visit to our Tasting Room will give you the opportunity to experience our wines and taste the magic of SE Oklahoma and the Hochatown area. We will have a gift shop offering our wines, juices, wine accessories and other gifts.
