Responsible recreation on the river means researching current water levels and conditions, following local, state and federal boating laws, knowing the limits of your skills--and always wearing a life jacket!  Boating resources, including information about boat registration as well as free boating safety classes, are available through Idaho State Parks & Recreation's Boating Program and the Oregon State Marine Board's Boater Information website.

Idaho Power also offers water safety information for people visiting parks and reservoirs near their dams.  Learn more here.

The Idaho Oregon Snake River Water Trail Coalition is a 206 mile water trail along the Snake River in Southwest Idaho and Eastern Oregon for people to explore, respect and enjoy. A water trail is a water route that provides recreational and educational opportunities for motorized and non-motorized boaters and commercial opportunities for river communities. This trail begins at Three Island Crossing State Park, Idaho and ends at Farewell Bend State Park, Oregon.

Our mission:  The Idaho-Oregon Snake River Water Trail promotes river access and recreational opportunities that benefit communities, tourism and preservation of natural and cultural resources through a network of partnerships.
