“Don't Miss Photo Op!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Beautiful pictures are taken here. If you go early in the morning as the sun is coming up the sky has a pink tint along with the blue. Also in the fall it's not uncommon to see moose hanging out here.

“Most picturesque setting in Tetons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is a must-see... it is just an incredible view of the Tetons. Would be a great place to have a picnic or just sit and enjoy the view. We saw a bear close by. Any photo with any camera will be a keeper.

“bear sittings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is a great area to look for the 399 and her cubs. They like to hang out here at times. Even if the bears are not around, it's a pretty area to hike around and seems to attract a fair amount of wildlife.

“Just like the pictures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Probably one of the most photographed places around, especially in the Tetons, magnificent view and good area for animal viewing. Saw beaver and a grizzly on our stay.

“Beautiful views but no moose!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

The colors and views from Oxbow Bend are superior. Best bet is to go in the early hours as the colors and the view of the Tetons are at their best.
