The Lookout Rancheria is a federal Indian reservation belonging to the Pit River Tribe, a federally recognized tribe of indigenous people of California. The ranchería is located in Modoc County in northern California.[1]

Lookout Rancheria is 40 acres (160,000 m2) large and was established in 1913.[2] The rancheria is adjacent to the Shasta National Forest and located about halfway between Burney and Alturas in northeastern California. It is located about four miles (6 km) east of the small community of Lookout in southwestern Modoc County.


The ranchería is served by the Big Valley Joint Unified School District.
