Mary Tallent wrote on February 21, 2012: Broken Arrow Cabin is my little piece of Heaven. Comfortable,ever so quiet. Play or fish in the pristine waters of Citico Creek, explore the backroads, take a drink from a moutain spring, hike, visit area sights, or just sit on the porch with a good book and glance up at the creek and let the rest of the world go by. The summer of 2012 will mark my 51st year as a vacationer on the creek, my 24th in Broken Arrow Lodge. I’ve traveled extensively in the US and Europe, but to cleanse my mind of worries and stress no place beats Broken Arrow Lodge and Citico Creek. Give it a try. You will be a different person!

Patrick Rakes wrote on September 09, 2011: I agree with the description of the amazing sights underwater in Citico Creek--it's a "branch office" of ours at Conservation Fisheries, Inc., where we work with the federally listed fish. Enjoy! But please, please, please DO NOT lift or turn over rocks from May through mid-August!!! Endangered smoky madtoms, Citico darters, and Threatened yellowfin madtoms nest under them and you will kill all the eggs or fry if you disturb them! The rest of the year is OK (but please don't build dams with the rocks--the fish live under them year round). If you're really adventurous and have a dive light, snorkel AT NIGHT! The yellowfin madtoms come out from cover and cruise around out in the open. Just watch out for the beavers!!!
