This lake is not bad, but you need a boat. Says Donald Matson
After a long day outdoors Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites DEFIANCE is a nice place to spend a night or two. Nearby lakes? Sure, Defiance Reservoir is next to Oxbow Lake. There's so much to do here at Oxbow Lake that you need to camp here for a while, Sheperd's Pasture Campground is a nice location for that. In case you want to take a ride on a horse Mahnke Stable & Tack Store is in the
vicinity. You'll meet a lot of people from Defiance here, and Oxbow Lake Dam is a gorgeous location. Oxbow Lake beyond doubt is in the middle of a striking outdoors paradise.
