History of the Area
Located in southeastern Oklahoma, the park was established in 1937. It spans over 1,300 acres and is named after John T. Beavers, a Choctaw citizen.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed it during the Great Depression as part of President Roosevelt's New Deal program to provide jobs while preserving natural resources.

In addition to its rich history with CCC involvement, this location also has ties with Native American heritage due to its proximity near former tribal lands.

Over time it became popular for outdoor activities like fishing at Broken Bow Lake or hiking along David Boren Trail; today attracting thousands annually.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
October 15 Poor directions and trail poorly marked by Nicole_B
park review stars; one to five We had our 23ft. RV to stay overnight on our way to Texas from KY, and booked one night in Armadillo, site 20. Nowhere in our confirmation email did it provide directions on where to go, it simply gave the address to enter into our GPS. That address led us down an 8 mile drive to the visitor center which was packed and had no RV parking. Much to the dismay of our fellow travelers, my husband pulled over as best he could while I ran in to find out how to get to our site. I was told we were in the wrong area, that we needed to climb back out of the park, get back on the main road for 3 miles to Stevens Area. How in the world would anybody know that Half hour later we got to our site and set out for a hike. Using the map from the visitor center I could not find the trailhead after a half hour of searching. Only when I opened the All Trails App and typed in the name did it show me the TH was a mile down the road. I hiked it and got lost 3 times due to a lack of markings at key intersections. Again, All Trails saved me. I do want to say the site itself was terrific- very private, and a great view of the woods plus a nice fire ring. Please invest in trail markings and please please let people know in the email where to go to find their campsite
