Want Wind or Speed?
North & South Forebays
West of Hwy. 70, north of Oroville at Garden Rd.
Reserved for non-motorized use only, the North Forebay is
a sailor's dream come true. Ranked as the best sailing and windsurfing
north of the Bay Area, these waters and winds are delightful.
The spot is also popular with those who prefer to canoe, swim,
or just relax in the sun. A 200-yard sandy swimming beach also
has men's and women's dressing rooms, drinking water, and a special
feature--shade trees that keep the sun off of your picnic table
The South Forebay is the spot for speed competitions. Jet
ski, speedboat, and hydro planers all come here to show what
they're made of. Chemical toilets are available, but there is
no drinking water; so, come prepared. No trees here, but the
water action is exciting!
