Boating and Swimming

Water sports abound in Plumas County within its more than 100 lakes and 1,000 miles of streams.

Water skiing, boating, sailing, kayaking, paddle- boarding, windsurfing, jet skiing and swimming are among the more popular water sports available at the larger lakes, including Almanor, Bucks, Antelope, Little Grass, Gold, and Frenchman. (Lake Davis does not allow water skiing or jet skiing.)

Swimming is also popular at some of the smaller lakes, including Butt Valley Reservoir, the Lakes Basin area and the Graeagle Mill Pond, which has an adjacent facility with non-motorized watercraft rentals.

There are many swimming holes to be found in the rivers and streams.  There also are a number of public swimming pools located in the major communities.
