Rental Equipment FAQ

Q: Who can rent gear from OPR?
A: Students, faculty, staff and current members of the Alum Association are all eligible for rental, however the prices are different. The student prices for gear are a bit less than the prices for faculty, staff and alum.
Q: What comes with a raft package?
A: Each raft package comes with one raft, six personal floatation devices (PFD), four paddles, and a hand pump.
Q: Where is the best place to float?
A: There are several places to put in and take out along the Yakima River. One popular stretch starts at Ringer Loop and ends at the Umtanum Recreation Center. It is the route we take when we have guided trips, because it is both close to campus and a good quality 2 hour float. Other stretches enjoyed by many are from Umtanum Recreation Center to Lmuma Recreation Center, Big Pines or Roza Recreational Site. For more information on floating the Yakima River, click here.
Q: Can I make a reservation?
A: Currently we are unable to do reservations. We are hoping to be able to do reservations again in the near future. Sorry for the inconvenience!
