Oxbow Campground is one of four BLM campgrounds - Squaw Lake, Oxbow, Senator Wash North and South Shores and Ehrenberg Sandbowl – that are included in a special $75.00 annual permit. The fee without a permit is $15.00 a day. Camping is limited to not more than 14 days within any period of 28 consecutive days. When the limit has been reached campers are required to move to a different campground at least 25 miles away.
Oxbow is fairly small with campsites lining the bank of an old bend of the Colorado River which has been straightened and contained by a levee. A boat ramp on the oxbow allows access to the river. The campsites are fairly close together with no vegetation for privacy. A few sites are large enough for any RV. Amenities include tables, fire rings, grills, vault toilets and a dumpster.
None of the sites are marked as accessible but most are usable. The ground is fairly hard packed. The vault toilets are accessible. Campground
