Discover why so many visitors come each year to Northern California’s largest state reservoir.

Lake Oroville is a great gateway to more recreational variety than any other lake or reservoir in California. It offers a wide variety of outdoor activities including camping, picnicking, horseback riding, hiking, sail and power boating, water-skiing, fishing, swimming, boat-in camping, floating campsites and horse camping.

The reservoir, which boasts a capacity of over 3.5 million acre-feet, is the cornerstone of the Lake Oroville State Recreation Area and is conveniently located on the Feather River, about 75 miles north of Sacramento, in the chaparral oak-pine belt of northern Mother Lode Country.

The lakes’ 167 miles of forested shoreline are home to spotted bass, Chinook salmon, catfish, and rainbow trout. Lake Oroville is recognized as one of the best bass fisheries in the western United States, boasting some of the highest catch rates of quality fish in California.
