Lake Oroville is lovely this year after all of our rainfall. The fish ladders are back in action as is the fish hatchery. There is much to see. Picnic grounds are well maintained. Recreational activities abound.

Enjoy the wildflowers spread vast in the horizon and the water falls.... 更多

Walking the path of this area offered fresh air and... 更多
They are not maintaining the launch area. The lake is low so there needs to be gravel placed where the launch ends. If someone gets stuck then no one can get their boats in or out. Plus there is no facilities there. There should at least be a portable bathroom at least for the disabled people that visit.
