Nestled in the northeast corner of Oklahoma in the small town of Grove, Bear’s Den RV Park & Resort is full of fun on and off park.
The resort is located on the Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, one of the top bass fishing lakes in the country. The local Cherokee Queen River Boat is a large paddle boat that takes you on tours of the lake while serving dinners on board. With almost one mile of shoreline on park, Bear’s Den also allows you the ability to enjoy many activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming.
Grove and the surrounding towns are very popular in Native American History. The Cayuga Mission Church was hand-built in 1886 and is known to be the only church in the US designed by a Native American for the use of all people. The Five Civilized Tribe Museum, located in Muskogee, pays tribute to the preservation of the history, culture, and art of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee (Creek) and Seminole tribes. This museum is also in the historic Union Indian Agency building.
For those of you who enjoy antiques, head on down to Har-Ber Village, one of the largest antique museums and antique malls in the United States. This outdoor exhibition is a walk-through 1800’s era village with a countless amount of artifacts and history in the 112 buildings onsite.
Several casinos, restaurants, and other attractions are also around to enjoy. Just eight miles north of Bear’s Den is the entertainment filled Grand Lake Casino. The Buffalo Run Casino and Hotel in the town of Miami hosts several entertainers, with country singer Trace Adkins getting ready to headline in March. If you are ready to take a day trip, then the entertainment capital of the Midwest, Branson, Missouri, is less than two hours away.
