Beckwourth Ranger District is one of three ranger districts of the Plumas National Forest. We are located on the eastern portion of the forest in Eastern Plumas County extending into Northeastern Sierra and South Lassen Counties. We are proud to be part of a dynamic community that shares its wealth of resources with our visitors.

The Beckwourth Ranger District is a place where visitors can find activities and experiences they require. Besides the great expanse of forest and range land, visitors also enjoy three recreation areas; mountain top forest lookouts; seventeen fee based campgrounds; seven developed 'no-fee campgrounds; a versatile forest road system; four lodges operated under permit; and two rental facilities. From solitude to adventure, available activities include lodges, camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, biking, equestrian, nature watching, water sports, cultural resources, exploring, wildflowers, fall color, motor touring and relaxing.

In addition to recreation activities, Beckwourth Ranger District provides other benefits to the community.
