About Lake Oroville


Lake Oroville is more than an hour north of Sacramento and is the second largest man-made lake in California. It has 167 miles of shoreline and covers nearly 16,000 acres of surface area. All four seasons take place in this area, and lake temperatures range from 46 degrees to 78 degrees F. The lake is located on the Feather River at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. In the spring, boaters can travel up the middle fork of the river and see Feather Falls – an astonishing 640 feet high waterfall! The lake's forested coastline provides a quiet escape where visitors can enjoy beautiful mountain views and limitless nature recreation.
