Welcome to 101 Things To Do In Butte County California.
Berry Creek is a small foothill community 18 miles east of Oroville named for Henry Berry, an early pioneer settler, but the wild blackberries growing throughout the area have put Berry Creek on the map.
Berry Creek hospitality ranges from a famous bed and breakfast, 2 stores, 3 churches, 1 gas station, a real western saloon, a post office and a school to an annual Berry Festival which takes place on the second Saturday in August.
The Festival, which started more than ten years ago as a community activity, now brings visitors from all over the state.
