Look at the master cylinder. Look on the firewall in the engine compartment, in front of the area the driver sits. Clean off the reservior before opening it. You should be able to see the level and marking indicating how high it should be. If it has been 2 years or more or it is dirty , I suggest flushing it out, especially if it has ABS.

-- Also --

I use a really long cable tie (make sure it's new and clean) as a dipstick. I agree that replacement of old brake fluid is a good idea.

The brake fluid reservoir on a 2002 Dodge Caravan is located on the master cylinder. This will be in the engine bay, on the drivers side, near the top.
