The lake which the name Lake Oswego refers to isn’t available to boat on for all… Oswego Lake is a private lake.

A lot of people moving to Portland or moving to Lake Oswego don’t always know this. Now, there are some court filings trying to change that, but it will most likely stay private for a number of reasons.In order to get on the lake in your boat you will need to become a shareholder and purchase on of the Lake Oswego waterfront homes for sale or join an easement. There are 20 Lake Oswego easements which provide deeded access to 3000 homes in the city.

A home can have deeded rights to more than one easement and residents from that home are allowed to join any and/or all of the Oswego Lake easements that are deeded to their home or they can join none.

A little more detail from the Lake Corp:

LOC owns 20 lakeside properties, Easements, that supply deeded lake access privileges to over 3,000 homeowners in the surrounding area. Each easement is governed by its own individual set of by-laws and has its own volunteer board of directors. Facilities and rate structures vary from easement to easement.

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.
