Bucks Lake

Welcome to Bucks Lake, Plumas County, California. Bucks Lake, the centerpiece of recreation in Central Plumas County, is 17 miles south-west of Quincy, past the small community of Meadow Valley. This beautiful, semi-isolated destination offers year-round enjoyment at an elevation of 5,200 feet. With 17 miles of shoreline, sandy beaches and tall pines, Bucks Lake attracts fishermen, campers, hikers and water sports enthusiasts in the temperate months, and snowmobilers and snowshoe explorers in the winter.

Fishing for trophy rainbow trout, salmon and mackinaw, water-skiing and jet-skiing, swimming, boating, nine campgrounds and a marina are featured at the lake.
