Oroville Dam Reviews & Ratings
Get a real good view to the west way out to Sacramento valley. Highest dam in the United States Over 700 feet above the river below
We weren't able to see dam. Main road closed Monday thru Thursday. You are able to view dam Friday thru Sunday when you can drive across bridge to boat launch. You can still go thru and walk across bridge. At various points you can view the dam. Take water with you. There are clean bathrooms as well.
Always a nice walk when its cool out.
Nice place to walk and relax...the view its amazing
Well, we were fishing at the dam and caught a few bass. Released them all. Not too much debris at the dam, but so much on other parts of the lake. Be careful!
