HELP US ENSURE RECREATIONAL BOATING'S FUTURE IN OREGON
Oregon Families for Boating is a community of boating enthusiasts, clubs and local small businesses dedicated to ensuring boating opportunities are accessible to all Oregonians.
By developing best practices, maintaining waterway access rights, educating the community, promoting safety, and supporting sound environmental stewardship, we ensure recreational boating’s future in Oregon.
WHAT WE DO
We support the 160,000+ families across Oregon that enjoy recreational boating and 400+ local companies that depend on their business.
As a unified group, we make sure state lawmakers hear our collective voice. Our community organizers, lobbyists and lawyers work together to advocate for reasonable and responsible access to Oregon’s waterways for motorized and non-motorized sports.
To foster a responsible environment on our waterways, we educate boaters about courteous behavior to ensure every moment on Oregon’s waterways is safe and enjoyable for all.
As stewards of the environment and the communities where we live and work, the recreational boating community continues to advocate for environmental protection and safety throughout our waterways.

See just how limited wake surfing is in this stretch of the Willamette River, why the wake surfing zones were selected and what additional regulations are already in place to keep the river safe and healthy.
