Sunriver draws visitors from all over the world thanks to our easy access to outdoor recreation and stunning views no matter where you are in the region. Stand up paddleboarding continues to grow in popularity, especially in Central Oregon. We’re close to so many amazing lakes and rivers, which makes it easy to find the perfect spot to paddle with friends and family. We’re often asked where guests can rent stand up paddleboards in Sunriver and in this blog, we’re happy to share some insight.
Rent Stand Up Paddleboards in Sunriver
There are a few different shops offering stand up paddleboard rentals in Sunriver. There are two main differences when looking at Central Oregon paddleboard rentals. Typically, you can rent either a fiberglass paddleboard or an inflatable paddleboard. Inflatable paddleboards are great for guests that don’t have the towing capacity for a full size fiberglass paddleboard.
Good 2 Go — Located in The Village at Sunriver, Good 2 Go offers a variety of water sport toy rentals, including stand up paddleboards. $70 full day rental
Sunriver Toy House — Paddleboard rentals at Sunriver Toy House start at $60/day for inflatable SUPs. Sunriver Toy House also has large, multi-person paddleboards that act as small boats – like the “Sunrdeck” and “Mega SUP”.
Sunriver Resort Marina — The Marina at Sunriver Resort has typically been reserved for guests of the Resort only, but this year they will be offering stand up paddleboard rentals to the public. Check back on The Marina’s website for more information about cost as it gets closer to summer.

Paddleboarding at Central Oregon Lakes
Our location in Sunriver places you near a variety of beautiful mountain lakes in the Cascades region. Lakes are the perfect place to take out a paddleboard rental, especially for beginners because you don’t have to deal with the current of a river. The still water in the Cascade Lakes makes for the perfect environment to learn how to paddleboard. Here, you’ll be surrounded by stunning mountain vistas. Paddling around Elk Lake, for example, means you’ll have Mt. Bachelor in the background of all of your photos!
