Clay Pit SVRA
State Vehiclular 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 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a large
shallow pit ringed with low hills Ã¢â‚¬â€œ is the site of this recreation
area. It is a motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle, and dune buggy use area.
There is also a rifle range.
