|Hugo Lake Cabin Rentals - There are many beautiful areas in Oklahoma and a wide variety of cabin
rentals to choose from throughout the state, but we recently visited Lake Hugo State Park and thoroughly
enjoyed renting a cabin there.
My wife and I were looking for a weekend getaway to relax during February 2011. We were hoping for
a place where we could rent a cabin on the lake that was close to Dallas, Texas. Lake Hugo State Park
turned out to be just what we were looking for. It is a little over 100 miles northeast of Dallas and sits in a
wooded area along Lake Hugo. It has some nice cabin rentals, all with great views of the lake. There are
sixteen resort cabins available arranged in two groups at different sections of the park. Resort cabins
21-26 are located pretty much in a line along a road that leads down to a gazebo, a large picnic pavilion
and the start of a hiking trail. The second group of ten resort cabins is located on kind of a peninsula and
also has a small outdoor playground for younger children. The park has ten primitive cabins, which are
smaller and less expensive and arranged with a group kitchen and picnic pavilion in the center of them,
which works great for group retreats or family reunions. To get a better feel for how things are arranged,
here is what the cabin locations for the park looks like.
We stayed in cabin #21, which is on the left side of a line
of cabins and has quite a bit of space between it and the
Hospitality House. Linens, towels and everything you
need is pretty much provided, so all you really need to do
is bring yourself, some food and whatever else you may
want. The kitchen has a coffee maker, but there were no
filters in our cabin, so you may want to pack some of
these. Also, some matches or a fire starter for fires in
the fireplace were needed for our trip.
The cabins are clean and well maintained. Our lakeview
cabin had a master bedroom with a king size bed,
dresser, night stand and large closet. The guest bedroom
was also quite large and comfortable. The bathroom was
good sized and the cabin was equipped with central heat
and air, TV and satellite.
We loved the interior with the big wood beams and wood interior. There were French Doors all along
the lakeside of the cabin that provided wonderful views, especially at sunset. The living room had a
sleeper sofa and comfortable chairs where you could sit and relax in front of a fire after a day of
activities. The marina rents pontoon boats if you want to explore the lake. If you want a little more
exercise you may want to rent a bike at the marina and pedal around exploring the park. You can
walk throughout the park on the paved roads or there are hiking trails to enjoy. It had rained the night
before our arrival, so the trails were still a bit wet, so we went into Hugo and took the Elephant Walk
walking trail were we could stretch our legs and try out some of the workout stations along the way.
If you are in the mood for some good barbecue or a steak it is worth the short drive to Antlers,
Oklahoma to eat at Ables Western Bar-B-Que. When we visited, they had a great western
atmosphere, wonderful food and reasonable prices.
