Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Whether it is fishing, boating, hiking, horseback riding, ATV riding, mountain biking, geocaching, camping, or wildlife watching you fancy, you can find it all here at Dworshak! Surrounded by lush forested mountains, the 54 mile long reservoir is located in beautiful North Central Idaho. Since the completion of the dam in 1973, Dworshak Dam has offered and is continually improving the recreational and natural resource benefits. Our geocache trail has been completed check out our website or visitor center for locations. We are currently working on horseback riding trails.
The dam is located on the North Fork of the Clearwater River, about 5 miles from Orofino, Idaho. Dworshak Dam is a flood risk management project and was completed after seven years of construction. Congress authorized the project for flood control, hydropower generation, outdoor recreation, navigation, and fish and wildlife benefits. Today, we continue to operate for these purposes to benefit the public.
