Boat-in Campgrounds at Lake Oroville are only accessible by boat. Each campground has a number of campsites, some as many as 25, others as few as 5. During periods of low water the campsites may be a significant distance from the water. Campers must camp in a designated campsite. No general shoreline camping is allowed. Campers must bring their own drinking water.
Check in at Spillway or Lime Saddle entrance station. All of the boat-in campgrounds - Foreman Creek, Bloomer Point, Craig Saddle, Bloomer Knoll, and Goat Ranch - are first-come, first-served.
Lake Oroville also offers Bloomer Group Boat-in Campsite.
General Camping Information
Opening and closing dates of campgrounds are only estimates, usually dependent on snow conditions. Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the reservation website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, firewood from outside the area is not permitted.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate.
