It fea­tures inter­pre­tive dis­plays, an audio-visu­al room where films about the dam and sur­round­ing area are shown through­out each day. The vis­i­tor cen­ter dis­plays fea­ture a his­to­ry of the Dam con­struc­tion and State Water Project as well as a his­toric view of the Native Peo­ple that inhab­it the Lake Oroville Area. A 47-foot view­ing tow­er allows the vis­i­tor the oppor­tu­ni­ty to have a panoram­ic view of the dam and beau­ti­ful Lake.
