About 85 percent of the National Forest lies in Plumas Countymarker, but smaller portions are found in eastern Buttemarker, northern Sierramarker, southern Lassenmarker, and northeastern Yubamarker counties.

Plumas was established as the Plumas Forest Reserve by the General Land Office on March 27, 1905. In 1906 the forest was transferred to the U.S. Forest Service, and on March 4, 1907 it became a National Forest. On July 1, 1908 a portion of Diamond Mountain National Forest was added.
