Portola/Sierra Valley

Welcome to Portola, Plumas County's only incorporated city. Portola is intersected by the Union Pacific Railroad and the Middle Fork of the Feather River. Nearby Lake Davis is well known for excellent trophy trout fishing and camping and for viewing wildlife and spring wildflowers.
The city also is home to the world renowned Western Pacific Railroad Museum where visitors can climb about an extensive collection of train cars and locomotives and even drive a diesel locomotive themselves. The city's downtown park, which hosts a number of outdoor concerts and events, has a skateboard park, swimming pool, tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts, playground and picnic area.
Further east along Highway 70, the vast expanses of the Sierra Valley occupy a large portion of Eastern Plumas County and play a major role in the county's cattle-producing industry. Here are situated the towns of Beckwourth, Vinton and Chilcoot, the latter being the gateway to Frenchman Lake, a great trout fishery and popular camping area.
