Bucks Lake has been a mainstay of recreation and hydropower in Plumas County for about 80 years. Before Bucks Dam was built in 1928, the area was known as Bucks Ranch and was used for grazing cattle and horses.
Prior to its ranching days, Bucks Ranch was part of the Maidu summer hunting and gathering grounds. On the west shore of the lake is an area known as Indian Rocks. Many grinding holes exist on top of the large granite rocks there. Acorns, a staple of the Indians’ diet, were ground into meal inside these holes.
