Oxbow Bend Reviews
Parking was okay, even with an RV. Go down to the water surface to get some stunning pics. Lots of birds flying around as well. more »
Mooie plek om een foto te maken van de snake river met de tetons op de achtergrond. Mooi rijdens alle seizoenen. more »Nice place to take a picture of the Snake River with the Tetons in the background. Beautiful rhyme All Seasons.
This is a beautiful spot for photos and to explore. One of the top photographed areas in the Tetons. We also saw a few people kayaking which looked really fun.
STUNNING! This place is known for animals. We saw elk and cranes. Get here at dusk or dawn for beautiful lighting. Especially in Fall when the leaves are changing. There is plenty of parking which is rare in popular spots in the Tetons.
