Dodge Reservoir, located approximately 17 miles northeast of Ravendale, California, is a 480 acre water impoundment that was constructed in 1937 by the Dodge Brothers for irrigation.
The campground has sites with picnic tables and one wheelchair accessible vault toilet. There is no trash collection or potable water. Donations are welcome but there is no site fee. We recommend calling the Eagle Lake Field Office, for current water conditions before planning a fishing trip
The reservoir is located at approximately 5,600 feet in elevation, in a high desert setting of sagebrush hills with scattered junipers. The reservoir has traditionally been stocked with Rainbow Trout, Lahontan Cutthroat throat and brown trout by the California Department of Fish and Game. The prime time for fishing this reservoir is spring and early summer when the water levels are the highest. Title to the land under and adjacent to the reservoir is a combination of Private and Federal ownership. The Dodge Ranch holds the water rights to the reservoir with no minimum pool requirement.From Susanville: Travel 54 miles north on Highway 395 to Ravendale, turn right on Lassen County Road 502 for 12 miles, turn right on County Road 506 for 11 miles, turn left and drive one mile to the campground.
