Your official guide to Calaveras County
The Butte Fire is over and all of our most popular tourism regions were spared, including all of our historic downtowns. The county is still breathtakingly beautiful - burn areas are hidden along rural byways.
All tourism destinations are back open for business and looking forward to your visit! We have a large number and variety of events on our current events calendar and many have a Butte Fire fundraising element. Look for this graphic if you'd like to attend a fun event that also helps the recovery effort.
For those wishing to donate funds toward relief efforts for the Butte Fire, the Calaveras Community Foundation has set up a Disaster Relief Fund focusing on post-event recovery. On their home page, click the PayPal button to make a donation, and indicate "DRF" in the PayPal comment box.
The Resource Connection is also accepting financial donations for Butte Fire victims. For small/individual donations, please call 916-993-7080. For large, group or corporate donations, please call Laura Thompson at 916-993-7082.
