The East Park Dam and reservoir, of the Orland Project, is situated in the rolling foothills of the Mendocino National Forest on Little Stony Creek. The reservoir lies along a migratory corridor between California's Central Valley and the Coastal Range. Birders may see substantial movements of warblers and other neotropical migrants in late April/early May and in September.With a 25-mile shoreline, East Park Reservoir has a thriving population of warm-water fish, including largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, catfish, crappie, and bluegill. Good fishing year-round. Ideal bass fishing in the autumn months. Good boat launching areas with excellent shore accessibility. No boat ramps. The west end of the lake is open year-round. Camping facilities on the southeast side are closed for the winter.
