Clay Pit SVRA

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.

Location - Directions

From Highway 70, west on Oroville Dam Boulevard (Highway 162), two miles south on Larkin Road, to entrance.
