Lake Oroville History


Lake Oroville was the byproduct of the completion of the Oroville dam in 1968. The town of Oroville itself actually dates back to the height of the California Gold Rush. The gold found at Bidwell bar sparked a rush to the area and spawned the town that would become Oroville.
