Have SHARC Recreation Plus Passes? It provides you with access to the new SROA Boat Launch to park your car and exit/enter the river – Plus, your gear gets FREE EQUIPMENT SHUTTLE SERVICE from the New SROA Marina in Sunriver back to Sunriver ToyHouse. This free shuttle service for your rented hard body items – kayaks, SUPs, canoes, etc. is provided as a courtesy to Sunriver Owners and their Renters in possession of a current SROA Recreation Plus Pass (or owner’s card). If you have inflatables, please deflate them and return them to Sunriver ToyHouse by 5p or between 9-10am the following morning.
No SHARC Passes? No Worries – you can still have lots of fun. Leave a car in the Resort’s main marina parking lot for a flat $15 parking/river exit fee. We can not pick equipment up there, so deflate inflatables for transport and tie down hard body items.
