Camping in Norther California is a pretty straight-forward endeavor. You drive to your campsite, pop your tent, unload your food and beverages and enjoy the great outdoors. But there’s an experience in Butte County that will change your perspective on exactly what camping can be.

On Lake Oroville you can enjoy camping right in the middle of the lake by renting one of the ten floating campsites through the Lake Oroville State Recreation Area. It’s the perfect summer activity for anyone looking for a unique adventure on the lake.

Once you reserve your floating campsite, you’ll need your own boat to get there. Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted by a large upper deck to set up your tents, a propane BBQ grill (propane included), camp table, lockable closet and a restroom. It’s just like a campsite, so be sure to bring everything you’ll need including food, water and any activities you’ll want to do on the lake! Don’t forget there is no drinking water on the floating campsite, so come prepared.

The campsites are open from April to October every year and cost $175 per night. In the winter, they are removed from the water for maintenance and upkeep:

For anyone with a boat looking for an inexpensive alternative to renting a houseboat, these floating campsites are a great option! For more information on the Lake Oroville floating campsites or to reserve one, go here.

Enjoy your camping adventure on Lake Oroville!
