Nelson Bar, California
Posted July 31, 2017, by Robin (rbennett [at] buttecounty [dot] net)

The Nelson Bar bridge spanned the West Branch of the Feather River until Oroville Dam was built. It was submerged under Lake Oroville. A fishing ramp and parking area are now near the old bridge on Nelson Bar Road, now renamed Lime Saddle Rd, Paradise, CA. This is in the Lime Saddle Recreation Area of Lake Oroville, CA. It is a pretty area of the lake.
