Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Located within Oxbow Regional Park and right beside the Sandy River, the Oxbow Campground is one of Portland’s most accessible and beautiful campgrounds. That being said, Metro, who runs the park, does not take reservations for any of the 57 camping sites, so get in early because campsites are available on a first-come-first-served bases. Firewood is available for purchase ($5/bundle) and there are showers, but bring your quarters, as one $0.25 coin will get you only 2.5 minutes of hot water. Note that all of the RV sites are reserved for RV’s only, however there are no potable water or electrical hook-ups.

To fully explore the park, a few of the river's swimming holes, and its impressive grove of old-growth Douglas fir, western red cedar and western hemlock, hop onto the Oxbow Nature Trail at the north end of the campground.
