Camping at Oxbow Park



Oxbow campground is closed for the season.

For the protection of all Olmsted County park visitors and to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Olmsted County Parks department has implemented a new touchless payment system to pay for firewood, park passes, and more. 


To access the touchless parks payment system, simply use the camera function on your phone and hold it up to the QR code. When the website for the QR code pops up, click it and you will be taken to the new parks payment website. From there, you will select either Chester Woods Park or Oxbow Park. 

If you are unsure of how to use QR codes, you may simply visit this website: 

Check Out Time is 1:00 PM including Holidays.

Please Note:  The site numbers have changed!   If you've camped with us before, please verify that the site you've selected is the one you want.
