Nestled in the foothills of the Kiamichi Mountains, this rural community of nearly five thousand, ranks as a top contender for a place to live and raise children, as well as a major tourist area. The Broken Bow Lake, nine miles northeast of Broken Bow, is one of the most scenic lakes in the state. Adjacent to Broken Bow Lake, Beavers Bend State Park, with its rustic but modern cabins, as well as camping sites, hiking trails, and fabulous fishing, is a haven for relaxing.
Weyerhaeuser remains the largest employer in the county, however a number of other industries have found their place in the Broken Bow area. Industries such as Tyson Foods, Pan Pacific Company, Huber Company, as well as other various business facilities, play a vital and important role in the local economy.
In addition to our outstanding public school system, the county offers a higher education campus, as well as a vocational technical training facility. Churches play an important part of life in Broken Bow. The churches work together in community projects and events, which are often headed by the alliance formed through the Minister's Fellowship. The county has a 119 bed hospital, ambulance service, and numerous doctors, dentists, chiropractors, and clinics.
