 Camping Rules Have Changed At Oxbow Regional Park
Please follow the links below:
Ready, set, reserve
 Oxbow Regional Park is now offering online camping reservations. Thanks to a new partnership between Metro and the State of Oregon, visitors can make a reservation in advance and head out to the scenic Sandy River Gorge, knowing a tent or RV site is waiting for them. You may reserve your favorite campsite up to nine months in advance.
Reservations can be made by visiting: www.oregonmetro.gov/oxbow, or call Reservations NW at 1-800-452-5687, using a MasterCard or Visa. Pets and alcohol are not allowed in Oxbow Regional Park.  
Other changes for campers: the formerly coin-operated showers are now free, check-out time has been extended to noon, and two vehicles are now permitted per campsite. For 50 years, the 1,000-acre natural area park has been a recreational treasure, offering visitors an opportunity to walk in an old growth forest, view migrating salmon and sleep under the stars. For all the details on camping at Oxbow, including a campground map, visit:http://www.oregonmetro.gov/oxbow .
No pets (dogs), or alcohol are allowed in Oxbow Regional Park

Sandy River Spey Clave 2015 Agenda for on the Water Presentations

This File Is Under Construction And Will Change - Check Back Often - Last Up-Dated: 03/24/15
This year marks the 15th Sandy River 'Clave. To our knowledge, The Sandy River Spey Clave is the largest gathering of Spey Casters in the Western Hemisphere. All of the best Spey Tackle manufacturers are there. The top Spey Casters in the Pacific Northwest will give On-The-Water Presentations and will act as your personal instructors during Friday's FREE Beginner's Class.
The Sandy River Spey Clave is totally integrated. Male and female Instructors/Presenters will be mixed into all three days of the scheduled on-the-water programs.
Free Catered Food has been added for lunch all three days. We are all members of the “Spey Community.” The essence of the Sandy River Spey 'Clave is as much social as it is educational. See you there, friends.
