Angels Camp is a picturesque Western town... the place where Samuel Clemens, heard the story of the Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras. This tall tale, reworked as a Mark Twain story, propelled him to fame and put Calaveras County on the map.

Historic downtown Angels Camp retains its Gold Rush architecture making it a charming shopping experience. Walk along the Frog Hop of Fame while you check out small-boutique shops including Innovations in Tourism winner, Stories in Stones. Stop in at the Calaveras Visitors Center to get detailed information on what to see and do in the county, and sign up for the free VIP program for local savings. When you're ready to take a load off your feet, take your pick from several downtown restaurants, or pop in to Sugar Bakery for a scone and a cup of coffee. Be sure to head west to the Angels Camp Museum and check out their fun gift shop.
