The Fall of 2023 will bring a new local point of interest to the Broken Bow / Hochatown area, as reported by 500 Nations. Choctaw Nation will break ground this Spring on a 200,000-square-foot casino hotel and entertainment resort, that will include an outdoor amphitheater in Hochatown, OK.
Choctaw Nation's press release describes:
- The development is a brand-new concept with a design and experience that will reflect the rich culture of the Choctaw people.
- The four-story, 202,000 square-foot development will include 100 hotel rooms, 600 slot machines, eight table games, several restaurants and bars, a pool, an outdoor venue with an amphitheater, beer garden and a family-friendly game zone.
- In addition to the resort, a 12,000 square-foot mercantile will adjoin the property offering a small market, convenient food options and a fuel station with 24 pumps. Guests will experience the Choctaw culture through the design of the facility, authentic art and will be able to shop authentic Choctaw art in the Mercantile.
onX's off-roading app gives us a good picture of Choctaw Nation's land at the corner and the complex's future location.
Aiukli Creek View Cabin and Aiukli Pine View Cabin are just 6 miles north from Choctaw Nation's new planned development, which will be at the intersection of North U.S. Highway 259 and OK-259A. We are so excited for what will come and the increased entertainment options guests will have while vacationing in the area. The Broken Bow / Hochatown area already has many entertainment options, like an outdoor life-sized maze, escape room, painting, petting zoo, and other attractions, as well as outdoor activities, such as fishing, boating, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, off roading, ATV riding, and more.
Did you know "Aiukli" means "beautiful" in the Choctaw language? It is nod to the Choctaw native indians that settled in the area. Aiukli is pronounced eye-yuke-lee.
