Oroville is a nice small town that everyone knows everyone and everyone is like family. All the lakes are amazing living so close to the lake, mountain's and there is so many things that you can do outside. There is one thing that I would change and that would be all the drugs that is there and getting in that hands of little kid, and teens.
Oroville is a small town quite town with may great outdoor activities to explore, especially if you like hunting, fishing, and hiking. The lake is a nice place to hang out in the hot summers and provides endless entertainment. The public school, however, is quite poor and may families choose to send their kids on down the road to the neighboring town.
