This is such a beautiful spot. From fishing, wildlife viewing, photography or just zoning out taking in the views. I have loved this spot since I was young. It is worth a stop to take in the beauty.

Although we didn't see any wildlife this is an iconic place for photographs. If you get here at dawn or dusk, the reflection of the mountains in the water make for a great shot.

Many times, we have stopped here to watch more than one bull moose munching contentedly on the wet grasses! As long as you keep your distance & allow them plenty of space, they will ignore you & you'll get great photos! Do not move closer...More

Can't give you a name, but there ARE many outfitters in Jackson. I promise that at least two or four can easily accomodate you.
Is there any hotel near Oxbow Bend?

Hi, There are resorts close by. The closest are Signal Mt Lodge and Jackson Lake Lodge. No actual hotels like in Jackson. Signal Mt is cheaper than Jackson Lake Lodge but both are spectacular right on Jackson Lake in front... More
