The project is located on the North Fork Feather River about 35 miles northeast of Oroville, in Butte and Plumas Counties, California, and in part on lands within the Plumas National Forest. The project includes the Rock Creek and Cresta Developments.

The combined flow from Rock Creek and Bucks Creek facilities, along with the flow from several small tributaries along the North Fork Feather River, enters the Cresta reservoir. Water is diverted through a tunnel to two parallel penstocks that serve the Cresta powerhouse. Water released from this powerhouse enters the Poe Project's reservoir, which begins immediately downstream of the Cresta powerhouse.
