The Dry Creek Rancheria is the land base ( reservation ) of the Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians. The reservation consists today of approximately 75 acres (300,000 m2) near the Russian River, in Sonoma County, approximately 75 miles (121 km) north of San Francisco, California. It is situated about 3 miles southeast of Geyserville.

The tribe itself was called Dry Creek Rancheria from the time of Vallejo (Spanish Rancherías) in the 19th century. In 1915 the tribe was called "Dry Creek Indians", "Dry Creek Pomo", and many mixtures of the two. The tribe adopted the name "Dry Creek Rancheria" for the reservation (lands) and the tribe officially in 1972. The tribe changed its name to Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians.
