Oxbow is seeing a lot of new improvements. Construction of the two nature play areas is scheduled to begin Oct. 15, 2018 and finish in May 2019, with work scheduled for 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays.
A welcome center opened in January 2019. In 2018, 17 new campsites opened and salmon habitat was created at three places along the Sandy River.
Although there will be heavy construction equipment and noise in some parts of the park, most areas of the park remain open.

Group Camp Area 2 is a remote, hike-in area for up to 35; nearest vehicle parking is approximately a quarter mile away. No fires at group camp 2; propane only. There are no water spigots available at group camp 2; campers must carry in their own water.
