"I went into a General Store, they wouldn't let me buy anything specific..." Comedian Steven Wright


The story of Camp Connell Continues with Camp Connell General Store & The Beer Garden. Owner Dan Tulipani and his crew show what Mountain Life is all about.

The Camp Connell of today was largely influenced by the surging popularity of auto travel through the mountains inspired when Dr. D. Sargent of Angels Camp became the first to drive an automobile over Ebbetts Pass in 1908. Family camping was destined to become an extremely popular recreational activity To meet those demands, Jack Connell began construction of a campground, cabins, general store and gas pumps in 1928. He and his wife named their endeavor "Camp Connell". Opened for business in 1929, the general store and gas station have been in operation ever since. The Connell's continued to expand the store and added a café to serve the increasing number of visitors. By 1934 the Post Office was moved to the store and became "Camp Connell Station". The store was a local gathering place where local residents and vacationers alike would come to share news and leave messages, much as it is today. Occasionally, Circuit Court was convened in the building. Monte Wolfe, Art and Harry Schimke, the Whittles, Hunts, Tryons, Lombardis, and Airolas were frequent visitors.

While the popularity of the general store and café continued, the campground was closed in 1949 and the property was subdivided into lots selling for $600 each. The cabins remained as part of Camp Connell until the 1960's, when the highway was realigned to accommodate the ski resort and village at Bear Valley, as well as the development of Big Trees Village. The old highway became the current two accesses to Camp Connell and the property has stayed much the same ever since.

Today the Camp Connell General Store is one of the oldest Chevron stations in California as well as the longest continuously operated retail business between Murphys and Markleeville. It is a popular stop for visitors and a cherished part of the local community."

06:30 PM Comedian Liz Grant to headline at Wine and Whimsy on February 8th, 2020
Angels Camp, CA...Liz Grant, a Bay Area comedian will let loose at Wine and Whimsy on February 8th at The Metropolitan in San Andreas. The event, presented by Soroptimist International of Calaveras County, promises to provide an evening of laughter, friendship and wine while benefitting the many local Soroptimist programs.
Soroptimists present education and training awards for women, career support for girls and promote health by offering free lipid panel screenings to Calaveras County women for the entire month of February in partnership with Dignity Health Mark Twain Medical Centers.


This year’s Wine and Whimsy will bring the hilarity to the historic Metropolitan. Originally a hotel, The Met was built at the base of Main Street in San Andreas in 1859. A fire consumed the building in 1926, and in its place a movie theater was constructed in the early 1950s. It was later renovated as a dining hall and performance venue.

Rumor has it that Mark Twain found his inspiration for The Jumping Frog right in the Metropolitan’s luxurious bar-room.

Wine and Whimsy tickets are now available on-line at http://sicalaverascounty.org or by calling 209-753-9700. Admission, including a no-host bar and light appetizers, is $45. Doors open at 6:30 and the show begins at 7:30.

He’s back! And once again, the ONLY Saturday performance in California for this tour is right here at the Sutter Creek Theatre! His last album release tour show at the Sutter Creek Theatre in 2017 SOLD OUT – so get your tickets early!
Singer-songwriter, painter, and essayist Tom Russell has released 35 highly-acclaimed albums and published six books, including a book on his art, a book of his songs, and a five-star rated book of essays, Ceremonies of the Horsemen. Russell was awarded the 2015 ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for excellence in music journalism, and his paintings reside in several major American museums and are represented through six world galleries.Russell’s latest recording of original compositions, October in the Railroad Earth, was released March15, 2019, on Frontera Records in North America and CD/LP on Proper Records everywhere else.
October in the Railroad Earth follows the acclaimed 2017 Frontera/Proper album “Folk Hotel” and Russell’s tribute to Ian & Sylvia on True North Records, “Play One More,” both receiving worldwide acclaim. Between major releases in 2018, Russell recorded the Bruce Springsteen track “Across The Border” for the three-disc Appleseed Records anniversary sampler, Roots and Branches, and issued a re-recording of early classics on Frontera, Old Songs Yet To Sing.
Russell’s previous album of new original material was the 2015 “folk opera” that Thom Jurek of allmusic.com hailed as Tom’s masterpiece, “The Rose of Roscrae.” Named “the top folk album of 2015” by Mojo magazine, Roscrae was also lauded as “maybe the most important Americana record of all time” by UK Folk. The album was included in top ten lists of dozens of publications, including the Los Angeles Times.
