Location

Oxbow is open to the public during the month of October for our annual Oxtober Fall Pumpkin Festival. At other times throughout the year, visitors may access Oxbow for summer camps, field trips, volunteer work, and other pre-arranged special events.

Please note that while we love animals, we are a working organic vegetable farm and dogs are not allowed on our property. If you are visiting Oxbow for any reason, please leave your furry friends at home!


Our address is 10819 Carnation-Duvall Rd (also Highway 203) in Carnation. Depending on your needs, you will use one of two entrances:

West Entrance (Events Entrance)
