Hikers at Lake Oroville


Hikers can climb up to see panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada and the Sutter Buttes Mountains, which is the smallest mountain range in the world! Many biking, hiking, and equestrian trails weave throughout the Lake Oroville State Recreation Center. Sailing, snorkeling, and windsurfing are popular sports here once the lake becomes seasonably warm. Lakeside and floating campsites are located throughout the region. Lake Oroville also boasts the best bass fishing in California. Largemouth, Smallmouth, Spotted, & Redeye Bass, Black & White Crappie, Sturgeon, Catfish, Rainbow, Brown, & Lake Trout, and Coho Salmon are open season all year long! The Lake Oroville Visitor Center has a museum and exhibits for guest entertainment. A few other historic museums can be found in the town of Oroville, which is 70 miles north of Sacramento, California.
