Fodor's Review

This peaceful spot overlooks a quiet backwater left by the Snake River when it cut a new southern channel. White pelicans stop here on their spring migration (many stay on through summer), sandhill cranes and trumpeter swans visit frequently, and great blue herons nest amid the cottonwoods along the river. Use binoculars to search for bald eagles, osprey, moose, beaver, and otter. The Oxbow is known for the reflection of Mount. Moran that marks its calm waters in early morning.
