 Oswego Lake is a private lake and in order to be able to boat in it you must either live in a Lake Oswego waterfront home or live in a home with a lake/boat easement.

There are many different options for both choices. For Oswego Lake waterfront homes you can look at both the South and the North shore. There are also many canals and bays off of the main lake. There are two high schools in Lake Oswego so if a particular one is important to you than it is important to know where the Lake Oswego high school boundaries are.

Having an easement to Oswego Lake is a more affordable way to have good access to the lake. There are many different Lake Oswego neighborhood easements to choose to be a member of so again look at boundaries and also look at the individual easements themselves. They all differ from each other so choose a home in a neighborhood with an easement that suits you. Keep in mind they have limited boat slips and have different ways if allocating those to easement members so you may not get a slip right away or even soon.
