Beavers Bend and Broken Bow Lake Conditions

Beavers Bend State Park is officially closed as are all boat ramps to Broken Bow Lake.  The release of an unprecedented amounts of water from Broken Bow Lake has caused flooding along the Mountain Fork river.  This flooding has impacted public water supply, which has caused some businesses and cabins to temporarily close.

Castlewood Trails has not been affected by the recent floods.  Due to use of a water well, rather than public water supply, water at the cabin is unaffected and the cabin is open for business. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those in Oklahoma and surrounding states that have been impacted by the recent floods.
