Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park is just a little over an hour’s drive from Angels Camp. Visitors have the opportunity to pan for gold in the South Fork of the American River and enjoy hikes and picnics under the riparian oak woodlands. Overlooking the beautiful river canyon is the Marshall Monument, California’s first historic monument and the final resting place of James Marshall. The statue looks down on the river and points to the site of the gold discovery.
Visit their exhibits, take a gold panning lesson, participate in tours, experience living history, or participate in special events planned regularly throughout the year such as Coloma Gold Rush Live. Contact the Gold Discovery Museum and Visitor Center for details. Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park is proud to also offer the Eureka Experience school and group programs.
