Central Oregon has dozens of pretty lakes to explore with your friends and family this summer. From Wickiup Reservoir, to Paulina Lake which sits inside a collapsed caldera of a volcano, and Lava Lake which sits on the gorgeous Cascade Lakes scenic byway, it would take weeks to explore them all. One exciting way to enjoy these lakes is by wave runner or pontoon boat, which you can rent for the day in Sunriver at Sunset Lodging.

Sunset Lodging In Sunriver is a great place to rent a pontoon boat or wave runner for the day as it's centrally located to several gorgeous lakes.

If you're looking for a relaxing day on the water, grab Sunset Lodging's brand new 20-foot DLX Suntracker Fishin' Party Barge.

This pontoon boat seats 9 people and has a 90 horsepower motor and ski-tower so you can water-ski or drag kids behind the boat in a tube. This boat is also a great option for fishing as it has fishing rod holders. A Bluetooth stereo completes the package so you can listen to your favorite music while spending a day on the lake with friends and family.

The wave runners are easy to operate and have intelligent braking and reverse systems. They also have a waterproof storage area for your phone and gear.

When you rent a wave runner or pontoon boat from Sunset Lodging they come with life jackets, a first aid kit, a fire extinguisher, and more safety equipment.

For those that don't have a way to tow their pontoon boat and wave runner rentals to the lake, Sunset Lodging can tow them to any of the Central Oregon lakes for you, launch them, and then pick them up at the end of the day.
