About Modoc County

How to Beat a Modoc County Traffic Ticket

Modoc County gets its name from the Modoc people who inhabited the county for thousands of years. The Achumawi and Paiute also lived in the area. Settlement of the area began in the 18870 with the timber, gold, agriculture, and railroad industries. It wasn’t until California Governor Newton Booth signed an Act of Legislature in February of 1874 that Modoc County was officially formed from eastern lands of Siskiyou County.

The 4,203 square mile county is the most northeastern county in California, bordering both Oregon and Nevada and is the only rectangular county in California. The population of Modoc sits at an estimated 8,900 residents, making it the third least populous county in California.

Visitors and residents alike enjoy many of Modoc County’s beautiful and historical outdoor activity sites including the South Warner Mountain Wilderness, Surprise Valley, Devil’s Garden, the Lava Beds National Monument and the Tule Lake Internment/Segregation Center, which is the site of one of the ten internment camps constructed to incarcerate Japanese Americans on the West Coast during World War II. Tule Lake Segregation Center, with 18,700 inmates, was the largest and most controversial of the ten camps. Starting in 1974, Tule Lake became the site of several pilgrimages by those seeking an apology from the government to Japanese Americans. The pilgrimages continue to this day every other year around the fourth of July and serve education purposes.
