Built in 1958, the park is named for Fred McCormick. McCormick worked for Idaho Power for 25 years and was chief engineer during construction. Oxbow got its name from a three-mile bend in the Snake River. To early settlers in the area, the bend in the river looked like the U-shaped frame that forms a collar around an ox’s neck.
