Camp Fire Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park: Closed, not on fire.
Clay Pit State Vehicular Recreation Area: Was closed, but is now open.
Lake Oroville State Recreation Area: Partially closed. Active fires remain at Lime Saddle Campground, Nelson Bar day-use area, Dark Canyon and Vinton Gulch cartop launch areas. The marina is currently safe, but fire is burning north of it. Thermalito North Forebay remains closed for fire operations. The South Forebay and the visitor center have reopened. Bidwell Canyon is open only to allow residents to check on their houseboats, but no boats are allowed on the water due to fire suppression activities. Lake Oroville webcams are back up, but may be intermittent due to heavy smoke affecting the solar batteries.
Wildfire conditions are continually shifting, therefore California State Parks advises the public to avoid the closed state parks and any other areas that are closed.
Individuals with camping reservations are being contacted directly by California State Park’s reservation system, ReserveCalifornia™. Refunds are being provided.
Our hearts go out to all those affected by the wildfires. Thank you to all of the firefighters and first responders, including California State Park’s Rangers, Lifeguards and staff members, for their help.
