Your Official Guide to Calaveras County
In the midst of California’s charming Gold Country and spectacular High Sierra is Calaveras County. Here, mountain sports, Gold Rush history and architecture combine with charming downtown shopping and casual culinary excellence. Add to the mix our inspired winemaking and thriving arts and entertainment and the combination makes for a fantastic family adventure destination.
Ranging in altitude from close to sea level in the foothills to more than 8,000-feet at the Sierra crest, Calaveras boasts such diverse ecological and geological landscapes that it’s possible to ski in the morning and play a round of golf in the afternoon. Interesting geology extends well below ground level too, forming three show caves and a natural bridge formation.
