Oxbow Marina currently has more than 300 slips comprised of floating docks, which adjust according to the river’s water level. Our private water basin provides a safe boating experience and protects our customers’ boats from high water, currents, and river debris. We have private beaches where children can play or you can relax and watch great blue herons, ducks and the occasional bald eagle glide over the marina. Our tennis courts, available for dock customers only, are open daily with lighting at night. Many of our slip rental customers just enjoy relaxing with friends at their dock while enjoying the peacefulness of a spectacular sunset.
