Immediately east of the splendid Ruby Mountains, along the Hastings Cutoff of the California National Historic Trail, this reservoir remains accessible during winter months due to its close proximity to paved state Hwy. 228. However, the resvoir is fry during drought years. The area is a popular access point for the Humboldt National Forest and the RubyLakes National Wildlife Refuge. Primitive camping, hiking and photographic opportunities are endless. There is open camping on the north and south shores, 9 developed sites with tables, grills, vault toilets, day use area, no drinking water. Fees $2.00 per visit.


Located 30 miles southeast of Elki via State Route 227 to State Route 228.
