Forest Ranch is a census-designated place in Butte County, California. The Forest Ranch post office was opened in 1878, closed in 1926, and re-established in 1932, and moved several times in 1938 to its present location. It includes Forest Ranch Elementary School (K-6), the post office, and a CDF fire station. The community's ZIP code is 95942, and is shared with the community of Butte Meadows. There is around 600 homes with population that hovers around 1,200.
The US Geological Survey reports the town's elevation as 2,415 feet (736 m) above mean sea level. The eastern end of the community is about 3,500 feet (1,067 m): about 1,000 feet (305 m) higher. This is high enough that residents occasionally get "snowed in." Residents east of the center of the community report the snowfall is heavy enough to prevent driving about one to three days each year. This is only true of homes not located along State Route 32. Some residents commute to work in Chico, about fifteen driving miles west on SR32.
