Description - Clay Pit State Vehicular Recreation 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 220-acres recreation area.

Recreation - It is a motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle, and dune buggy use area. There is also a rifle range. Call in advance to determine the riding conditions.

Climate - Climate in the Shasta-Cascade Region varies greatly with elevation. Higher elevations tend to have much cooler temperatures and higher precipitation. Summer weather is usually hot and dry with lower elevation temperatures ranging from 85° - 100°+F and lows from 60° - 70°. Fall days are usually mild and warm, with cool nights. Winter is when most of the precipitation falls, averaging over 55 inches per year, much of it in the form of snow in the high elevations. Highs range from 40° - 60° and lows from 30° - 40° in the lower elevations. Spring weather is variable with many pleasant days.

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