Clay Pit SVRA
State Vehicular Recreation Area
This off road area provides good beginner terrain for off-road enthusiasts. The clay used to build Lake Oroville was taken from the Feather River Valley, three miles west of Oroville. The resulting depression – a large shallow pit ringed with low hills – is the site of this recreation area. It is a motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle, and dune buggy use area.
