Trails and Maps
Peckerwood Knob Cabins affords endless opportunities for ATVs, mountain biking and hiking. AND no need to transport and leave your truck and trailer unprotected while you’re out having fun. You can leave right from the cabins in three directions and explore public lands free for miles and miles . . . and miles. No permits required. No boring flatlands. You’re in the mountains with something new around every bend. Rough terrain, great views. Our guests love it. Please check out Oklahoma ATV laws before riding: Click Here to Learn More
We have a trailer drop on site for those coming with ATVs on trailers. Please do not bring trailers to the Sunset Cabin or the house, as it is difficult to turn a trailer in the small spaces available there.
