As a travel writer, one of my favorite things to write about is secret getaways to places that most Californians have never experienced. Well, here’s another gem: Lake Oroville. Located 70 miles due north of Sacramento, Lake Oroville is the sleeper vacation spot that really does offer something for everyone: houseboating, fishing, biking, hiking, sailing, kayaking, sightseeing, camping, swimming, and a dam fine tour.

Okay, so maybe Oroville Dam isn’t on your bucket list, but, like crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, it’s one of those modern marvels that you really do need to see at least once in your life. Click the link below to see my suggested itinerary to Lake Oroville. You’ll sample most of the region’s highlights, then have a solid plan of what floats your boat when you take a road trip with the family, friends, or significant other for one of the most fun and affordable getaways in Northern California.
