Bucks Lake is a beautiful mountain lake with clear water and sandy beaches, surrounded by the Plumas National Forest. Located just 16 miles outside of Quincy.
Visit us and get away from it all…. Choose your vacation ……… relaxed and serene or active and fun or a little of both. Grab your kayak or rent one from Bucks Lake Marina, paddle around the 17 miles of shoreline, hike the many trails including the Pacific Crest Trail, watch the osprey and bald eagles dive for dinner and enjoy the amazing sunsets. Read a book, roast a marshmallow, and rejuvenate in the fresh mountain air.
Winter activities include famous snowmobiling trails, snow shoeing and cross country skiing. Cabins are available through Bucks Lakeshore Resort or rooms at the Haskin’s Valley Inn. If you don’t have a snowmobile or want to snowshoe in arrangements can be made with Lakeshore Resort to be picked up at the summit.
Bring your ski boat, or rent one from Bucks Lake Marina, and carve the water in the early morning or late evening. Tube in the afternoon when the lake is a little choppy. Rent a personal watercraft and jump the waves. Fish for our large Mackinaw, the delicious Kokanee, Browns and Rainbow trout. For fishing information or a fishing guide, contact Big Daddy’s Fishing.
