No staff are stationed on site. The WPA is fenced and signed with WPA signs. The entire area is open to foot traffic, or small boat. The marsh is shallow and filled with vegetation; it is not conducive to motorized or large boats.
The only regulations in effect are Idaho game laws. There is some good birding for water birds, but mostly on foot. The hardstem bulrush marsh attracts large numbers of nesting waterfowl, especially redheads, and colonial nesting birds, including Franklin's gulls, Forster's and black terns, white-faced ibis, snowy and cattle egrets, black-crowned night-herons, and great blue herons. Playa areas surrounding the marsh attract migrating shorebirds in spring and nesting shorebirds, such as black-necked stilts and American avocets, in summer. Trumpeter swans are sometimes observed. More detailed birding information can be found in "The Birder's Guide to Idaho."
The North Access Road is easy to find. Its an all weather gravel road. There is a large Oxford Slough WPA sign at the entrance to this road and a nice parking area at the end. It is not advisable to try this road during wet weather or when the frost is leaving the ground in spring. Waterfowl hunting can be good when there is water in the marsh. The marsh usually freezes over by late November. There is no fishing opportunity, as there are no fish. Trapping is allowed in accordance with Idaho game laws.
