The Modoc National Forest is located in the northeastern part of California.
Where is this Forest?


Welcome to the

Modoc National Forest

Medicine Lake on the Doublehead Ranger District


The Modoc National Forest is a land of contrasts and unspoiled vacation-hideaway settings. Nestled in the extreme northeastern corner of California, the Modoc National Forest is mountains, pine forests and meadows, lakes, streams, rugged canyons, wetlands, lava beds and high desert plateaus. The Modoc offers you beautiful scenery, varied terrain, abundant wildlife and a memorable visitor experience.
