Can be a tough little town for some. Highway 70 improvements may help to bring this town up in terms of economy, culture, lifestyle. When the skilled workers left after completing the Oroville Dam in the late 60s, unskilled laborers were left behind. The town is still trying to recover from this poor demographic which pervades the town to this day. Few jobs so young people leave. The Feather River does pass right through Oroville. The irony is that 30 miles north is the excellent town of Chico, CA.
