Olmsted County Parks are wonderful places to visit and enjoy the outdoors with family and friends.  Two of our parks, Chester Woods Park and Oxbow Park offer camping sites for minimal cost.  Chester Woods Park and Oxbow Park require a reservation for camping. 

Online reservations are now Open for Chester Woods and Oxbow Campgrounds. 

Please go to Olmsted County Public Works ePermitting for online reservations.  Credit Card purchases only. A small fee will be added to purchase - see details on site listed above.

You should receive two emails.  The first will have a subject line that says: Your reservation has been submitted to Olmsted Parks and is now pending payment.  The second will have a subject line that says:  Payment has been received for your reservation at Olmsted County Park.  If you did not receive both emails, your reservation is not complete and you could lose the site.
