Bucks Lake Recreation Area

Fodor's Review

The main recreational attraction in central Plumas County is 17 miles southwest of Quincy at elevation 5,200 feet. During warm months the lake's 17-mile shoreline, two marinas, and eight campgrounds attract anglers and water-sports enthusiasts. Trails through the tall pines beckon hikers and horseback riders. In winter much of the area remains open for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.
