Visitor Guide

Championship Golf Courses, Historic Bridges, & Rugged Canyon Walls

Rugged canyons, glassy lakes, trout filled streams, picturesque meadows, pine forests, mountain golf resorts and star-filled skies are all part of what define Plumas County. 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. 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. 

The Chester/Lake Almanor Basin is a renowned recreational paradise. The city of Chester, adjacent to Lassen Volcanic National Park, offers a wide variety of lodging some of the closest available to the park- which makes it the perfect choice for a relaxing, cozy “home base” for park goers. The Warner Valley portion of the park, including Drakesbad Guest Ranch, is accessible from Chester, and serves as the only overnight accommodations within the Park. Likewise, the resorts of Lake Almanor provide ideal settings for an old-fashioned summer family vacation. The lake is the largest and most popular in Plumas County and affords year-round fishing, several championship golf courses and, in the summer, various water sports activities. 


Lake Almanor
One of the best-kept secrets of Plumas County is the clear blue waters of Lake Almanor and its stunning views of Mt. Lassen. Lake Almanor itself is a destination for many outdoor recreational opportunities and is one of the prettiest lakes in the Northern California region.
National Barn Quilt Trail
Plumas County is one of only two counties in California participating in the National Barn Quilt Trail. Barn quilts are painted wood or metal, hung or freestanding on the outsides of barns, fences, garages, and businesses. The barn quilt tradition is celebrated every September with a countywide driving tour.
Historic Greenville
Greenville's Historic Main Street exemplifies the charm of Western American towns. Former saloons and bordellos are being refurbished into modern day stores of finery and fashion.
