Drop some Plumas knowledge on us.
Excellent no fee campground. Only six sites, but we were alone. Water pump and vault toilets available. Each campsite has a picnic table (excellent condition), fire ring, and food storage locker. Cows roam free and moo at all hours of the day. We awoke to hoof prints around our camp in the morning.
This camp spot is so fun with a (bigger) group of friends. There are at least 10 spots (drive up) surrounding the lake and also easy access off the main road. We brought floaties, kayaks, and SUPs to take out on the lake. There is plenty of hiking and mountain biking actives near by. Do not miss the fire tower hike!! There are bathrooms available close walking distance from all the sites but bring your own water! The sites are clean and well equipped with fire pits and picnic tables.
History of Plumas National Forest
Under the direction of President Theodore Roosevelt, Plumas was established as the Plumas Forest Reserve by the General Land Office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture on March 27, 1905. In 1906 the forest was transferred to the U.S. Forest Service, and on March 4, 1907 it became a National Forest. On July 1, 1908 a portion of Diamond Mountain National Forest was added. The Bucks Lake Wilderness was officially designated in 1984 as a part of the National Wilderness Preservation System.
