Karlo (formerly, Secret)[2] is an unincorporated community in Lassen County, California.[1] It is located on the Southern Pacific Railroad in the Secret Valley 20 miles (32 km) east-northeast of Susanville,[2] at an elevation of 4432 feet (1351 m).[1]

The Secret post office opened in 1892, closed in 1895, reopened in 1896, changed its name to Karlo in 1911, and closed for good in 1934.[2] The name Karlo honors Frank De Carlow, who settled nearby in 1886.[2]
