Cleone (formerly, Kanuck)[3] is a census-designated place[4] in Mendocino County, California.[2] It is located 3.25 miles (5.2 km) north-northeast of Fort Bragg[3] on California State Highway 1, at an elevation of 79 feet (24 m).[2] It most likely takes its name from Kelio, a division or village of the Pomo people.[5] The population was 618 at the 2010 census.

The Kanuck post office opened in 1883, changed its name to Cleone in 1883, and closed in 1908.[3] Wood products were shipped from a wharf at the place.[3]

The main entrance to MacKerricher State Park is in Cleone.
