Welcome to Plumas County!

Bundle up and get outdoors – and witness Mother Nature’s early transition from fall to winter! It's the holiday season -- without the hustle and bustle -- in the forests of California's Northern Sierra. The fragrant smell of evergreen is in the air as folks head into the woods to cut their own Christmas trees.

Whether you’re here to get a tree, shop, or spend the holidays in the mountains, you’ll find plenty of cozy lodging and delectable dining, holiday dinners and celebrations.

Experience the warmth and camaraderie as small towns celebrate with quaint light parades, tree-lightings and old-fashioned community caroling. Skip the mall crowds and stroll locally-owned Main Street shops offering unique gifts, good cheer and refreshments.

As Nature transitions from autumn to winter in Plumas County’s 1.2 million acres of forestland, outdoor recreation still abounds. Bundle up and get outside or watch for snowflakes from inside a cozy cabin. Peace on earth, you’ll find it here.
