Big lake

Nice lake, great fishing.

Floating camp sites

I’ve never been to a floating camp site. It’s great. The cleanest I’ve ever been camping. There is no electricity, no running water except for the toilet. You are right on the lake. Dip in to cool down or fish right off of you site. Best thing I’ve discovered yet.

Lake Oroville, nice camping, so many things to do!

Really enjoyed this campground which is part of the Lake Oroville State Recreation Area. The staff where we checked in were helpful with all of our questions about the area. We stayed here for a trip to Feather Falls, then Table Mountain on the way home. There are local hiking trails, and of course all kinds of water recreation at the lake. The Lake Oroville Visitor Center has a small museum and exhibits. Staff there were wonderful too.

Picnic tables, fire ring, flush toilets. We never felt crowded in our campsite here. If this campground isn't right for you, there are others within this SRA.
