Clay Pit SVRA

November 20, 2018: Clay Pit State Vehicular Recreation Area closed until further notice due to the Camp Fire.

The public is advised to avoid all areas that are closed. 

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the wildfires. Thank you to all of the firefighters and first responders, including California State Park’s Rangers, Lifeguards and staff members, for their help. For the latest fire conditions and evacuations, please visit CAL FIRE:

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.

Seasons/Climate Recommended Clothing

The weather can be changeable; layered clothing is recommended.
