Clay Pit SVRA

November 27, 2018: Clay Pit State Vehicular Recreation Area is now open. Thank you for your patience and understanding during the recent closure due to the Camp Fire.

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: www.fire.ca.gov/current_incidents.

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.
