Plumas County is located near the northeast corner of California, up where the Sierra and Cascade mountains meet. The county gets its name from the Spanish words for the Feather River (Rio de las Plumas), which flows through the county. Quincy, the unincorporated county seat, is about 80 miles northeast from Oroville, California and about 85 miles from Lake Tahoe and Reno, Nevada. State highways 70 and 89 traverse the county.
Plumas County has a population of just under 22,000, and the Quincy area population is about 7,000. The county boasts more than 100 lakes and 1,000 miles of rivers and streams with more than a million acres of national forest. With only nine people per square mile, this rural, four-season mountain retreat offers beauty, solitude and clean air.
Quality of life in Plumas County is unmatched by other areas in the United States and is widely considered one of the most progressive counties in the area. The population of the county has grown quite slowly, and with the U.S. National Forests covering more than 70% of its area, the county has been able to maintain the lifestyle which is so attractive to its residents.
Family recreational opportunities abound in Plumas County or within driving distance and include several tournament golf courses. Numerous lakes and mountain streams create a playground for those who love the water. Framed by mountain ranges, the area is also a mecca for hiking and skiing.
