Howard Prairie Marina

We wish the Marina looked like this, but unfortunately it does not and therefore, the Marina will NOT open this season.
Also, Boat Rentals will NOT be available.  There is still GREAT FISHING from the bank.


DAILY Fishing Licenses are sold out of the Lodge building during hours of operation. Annual Fishing Licenses will NOT be sold at the park and should be purchased (Sportsman's Warehouse, BlackBird) prior to arriving at the Resort.

You can also purchase your fishing licenses online, through the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
