About Calaveras County from the Chamber...

Life in Calaveras County is good. It is a privilege residents regard with heartfelt pride and commitment.

With a land area of 1,036 square miles (652,920 acres) and a population of 40,554 (2000 Census), there are approximately 16 acres of land for every resident. From near sea level with rolling foothills dotted with century old oaks to the spectacular Sierra crest in the west topping 8,000 feet, Mother Nature’s beauty abounds.

With that comes a wide range of recreational opportunities and a thriving tourism industry, alongside a burgeoning business community. Excellent Schools and Health Care. Quality of life. Community. History. This is Calaveras County.

Location
Calaveras County is situated in the heart of California’s Gold Country, nestled between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains – approximately one hour from the Central Valley, two hours from Sacramento and three hours from the Bay Area. Calaveras is bordered by Amador, Tuolumne and Alpine counties and by the Mokelumne River to the north and the Stanislaus River to the south.

Climate
The average low ranges from 40 degrees in the lowlands to 20 degrees in the high country in the winter months. Average highs range from 80 to 90 degrees. Annual rainfall can range from 40-50 inches with average snowfall in the High Sierra up to 300 inches.

Attractions
The county features numerous attractions including Calaveras Big Trees State Park, 250,000 acres of national forest land in the Stanislaus National Forest, nearby Bear Valley Ski Area and an abundance of recreational venues including three public caverns, a myriad of museums depicting local and Gold Rush history, over 15 wineries, six public or semi-private golf courses and nine public lakes.

Activities range from mountain biking, camping, hiking, fishing, cave exploration and golfing to river rafting, kayaking, boating and water skiing in the warmer months and world-class downhill and cross country skiing in the winter.

The natural beauty of Calaveras County also attracts artists of every passion, supporting a bevy of art galleries, live music, craft fairs and theatrical events.

A yearly calendar of special events include Calaveras’ signature “Jumping Frog Jubilee,” inspired by Mark Twain’s first published classic, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. Over the years, many events have gained popular momentum, becoming premier regional attractions in their own right.

History
Created in 1850, Calaveras County is one of California’s original 27 counties. Calaveras was awakened in 1848 by the California Gold Rush. The county’s heritage centers around the multitude of fortune seekers who came from around the world. Over 9 million ounces of gold were mined from its land.

The county became world-famous in 1865 with Mark Twain’s short story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. That history lives on in the many Gold Rush towns and in the people who settled here after the Gold Rush and started ranches, planted vineyards and remained for the exceptional quality of life.

Population
Calaveras County is one of California’s fastest growing counties. The county’s population in 1990 was 31,998 and in 2000 was recorded at 40,554, a rate increase of 26.7%, about twice the average state growth rate during this period of 13.8%.

Countywide population projections from the California State Dept. of Finance:
2005: 47,800
2010: 53,400
2015: 57,900
2020: 62,200
39% of the population is 25-54 years of age, 32% are 55 and older, 18% are age 0-14, and 10% from ages 15-24.

Visitor Services
Conveniently located on Highway 4 in the heart of the county on Main Street in downtown Angels Camp, the Calaveras Visitors Bureau is open daily for tourist and resident information. Newly built in 2000, the Visitors Bureau office has a landscaped rest area with picnic tables, clean public restrooms and a large porch with oak rocking chairs.

The Calaveras Visitors Bureau is a proactive non-profit organization devoted to providing comprehensive visitor services and marketing the county through the CVB’s Visitor Guide, press releases, media contacts, trade shows, web site and working together with the community, members, neighboring organizations and trade associations for the betterments of the tourism industry in Calaveras County.
