Rugged canyons, glassy lakes, trout filled streams, picturesque meadows, pine forests, mountain golf resorts and star-filled skies are all part of what define Quincy and Feather River Country. Located where the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges meet, the area boasts dozens of lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and over a million acres of National Forest. Quincy offers beauty, solitude, clean air and an unhurried pace with an abundance of recreation and relaxation available during all four seasons. As the county seat, Quincy is also its commercial center, home to museums, shopping and a number of motels, offering an excellent opportunity for mountain vacationers. Nearby are beautiful Bucks Lake and La Porte. Bucks Lake is a very popular spot for fishing and hunting as well as an excellent winter retreat for cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. La Porte also attracts visitors for camping, fishing, swimming, and winter sports activities.
The Blairsden/Graeagle/Portola area has gained prominence in recent years as a planned residential center for vacationers and retirees. Eastern Plumas County has six pristine golf courses, several stables, and in nearby Portola, the world-renowned Portola Railroad Museum. Also accessible are Lake Davis and Frenchman Reservoir, two popular trout fishing lakes. This rural mountain retreat offers a kind of peaceful relaxation and untouched natural beauty difficult to find in the otherwise modern, hurried world.
Dozens of events, fascinating museums, recreation options and scenic drives offer plenty to do year-round. Whether you are looking for a quiet vacation, a spot to retire, or to experience a natural adventure, the Quincy/Feather River Country is your ideal destination.
