Yurok Indian Reservation

The Yurok Tribe of the Yurok Reservation' is located in parts of Del Norte and Humboldt counties, California, on a 44-mile stretch of the Klamath River. It is a rancheria of Yurok people and a federally recognized tribe.

The size of the reservation is 84.714 sq mi (219.408 km²), and with almost 5,000 enrolled members, the Yurok Tribe is California's largest Indian Tribe. The reservation is serviced by Highway 169 from the south, which dead ends within the reservation. It is bordered by the Hoopa Indian Reservation to the south. It is adjacent to Redwood National Park to the west. The 2000 census reported a resident population of 1,103 persons on reservation territory, mostly in the community of Klamath, at the reservation's north end. The Resighini Rancheria, another separate reservation, which is located just south of Klamath, is enclaved within the Yurok's territory.
