A deer in the woods, one type of wildlife you can see in Oklahoma.The soundtrack of your vacation in McCurtain County is probably a little different than that of your day-to-day life. Instead of hearing cars driving by and sirens blaring, enjoy the sounds of the wind blowing through the trees or birds chirping. You may also hear the sounds of the animals that call this area home. For anyone hoping to catch a glimpse of the wildlife in our region of Oklahoma, there are several areas near your Beavers Bend Creative Escapes cabin filled with creatures for you to discover.

What You Can Spot Where

From places right outside the front door of your Hochatown cabin rental to natural attractions that make an excellent day trip, there are plenty of places to explore brimming with wildlife. 

  • Little River National Wildlife Refuge has been around since 1987. The over 14,000-acre area is home to Oklahoma’s largest sections of bottomland hardwood forests. This spot is home to numerous species of migratory and wetland birds, so we recommend bringing binoculars with you. 
  • For more of a lengthy adventure, head to the McCurtain County Wilderness Area. The rugged terrain is home to several species of interest, including more than 100 bird species, turkeys, foxes, deer, and bobcats. This area does manage controlled hunts.
  • A popular area a little closer to your Oklahoma cabin rental is Beavers Bend State Park. You can spot turkeys, bald eagles, deer, and beavers within the park boundaries. Some visitors have also spotted coyotes and bobcats.
  • The newest and perhaps most unique spot for wildlife viewing near Hochatown is Beavers Bend Safari Park. The drive-thru animal park is home to several species, including bison, elk, kudus, llamas, lemurs, and more.
