Get aroundEdit

SeeEdit

  • Natural Bridge Day Use Area (off Parrotts Ferry Road, between Columbia and Highway 4). Consists of a series of two caverns formed by travertine bridging over Coyote Creek. They are on land administered by the Bureau of Reclamation. The first cave is only a 3/4 mile hike down the hill, and 400 feet of elevation loss. It is 230 feet long from entrance to entrance. The second cave is another half mile further downstream.. It is 180 feet long between its two entrances. Water depth in the Upper Cave ranges from about ankle deep at the entrance to about 8 feet halfway through. The lower cave can be traversed with just getting your feet wet. Perfectly safe to swim through with only a few fish and crawdads, but one should bring a flashlight to improve visibility in nooks and crannies. Extremely popular site, best to go on a weekday, and early. Nice wildflowers along the trail in the Spring months, and lots of additional runoff from the springs that feed the bridge at the entrance and inside the bridge add to its beauty.
  • Mark Twain's Cabin, Jackass Hill Rd (Highway 49 south out of Angels Camp for about seven miles, turn left onto Jackass Hill Road). A partial replica of the cabin that famed author Mark Twain used to live in, with original chimney and fireplace.
  • Utica Park. Public park in Angels Camp visible from Main Street, host to many events including the summer Farmers' Market. Sits atop the former Utica mineshaft, and a set of large rusting gears, flywheels, winches, and cables are on a hilltop overlooking the park.

Held at "Frog Town", the county fairground, this event draws thousands of visitors every May.

Sticking to the spirit of the story, visitors are able to compete in their own contest. The fair also features carnival rides, musical performances, food, a destruction derby, livestock auction, as well as a variety of exhibits.
