Lake Oroville State Recreation Area

With 167 miles of forested shoreline, Lake Oroville offers more recreational variety than any other lake or reservoir in California. Near the City of Oroville in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, this man-made lake was formed by the tallest earth-filled dam in the country (770 feet high and 6,920 feet across the Feather River) when it was completed in 1968. The Lake is located one mile downstream of the junction of the Feather River's major tributaries. Bidwell Canyon Marina also features the State Water Project (SWP), which is one of the largest water and power systems in the world. SWP generates an average 6500 GWh of hydroelectricity annually and provides drinking water for more than 23 million people.
