With its seemingly infinite channels, Lake Oroville is a captivating region to explore, especially by houseboat. Low, forested mountains of lush landscape border the lake on several sides and more than 160 miles of shoreline provide plenty of places for houseboats to anchor and enjoy the clear and refreshing water. With five varieties of bass, Lake Oroville is one of the top destinations in the west for bass fishing and home to scores of fishing tournaments. It’s also the only place in the state where anglers can fish for Coho Salmon. Miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails are available, and summer time visitors enjoy water sports of every variety. As a state recreation area, visitors will find ample amenities and a wide range of camping options. The community of Oroville is only five miles away providing support and convenience for all the visitors to the region.
