About ChesterNearby Lake Almanor was formed when a dam was built on the north fork of the Feather River in 1914. When full, the reservoir covers 52 square miles and is a popular recreation area, offering swimming, boating, water skiing, fishing, hiking and camping. Winter visitors come for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. Resorts, vacation homes and campgrounds nestle among the pines along the lakeshore.
