Angels Camp, California
"Home of the Jumping Frog"
This beautiful little foothill town was founded in 1848 and two years later Placer gold was discovered. Located in Calaveras County, and the home of Mark Twain's famous Jumping Frog Jubilee, Angels Camp is nestled peacefully in the Sierra Foothills between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe, just three hours from the bay area.
Angels Camp's greatest prosperity came with the deep gold mines between 1880 and 1920. Take a walking tour of Main Street and pause for a moment to imagine. Angels is a quiet mountain town now, but at one time the city vibrated to the roar of the stamp mills and danced to the music of many saloons and dance halls. Many of the original buildings still line Main Street, buildings from the mid 1800s bearing thick stone walls and iron shutters.
