OROVILLE, Calif. - The Oroville Dam spillway crisis and repair work has had a big impact on recreation on Lake Oroville. Now state agencies are trying to make up for it.

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) and California State Parks are going to offer free day-use and boat launching at Lake Oroville on several select days this summer.

Fees will be waived to all visitors on the following days:

- May 17 and 18

Officials hope waiving the fees will help bring people back to the lake.
