Coloma Valley - Gold Country
Nestled in California's Sierra foothills, in the fabled Gold Country, lies the Coloma Valley. The South Fork of the American River - made famous in 1848 when gold was discovered in its stream bed at Sutter's Mill - runs right down the center of the valley. That discovery triggered the famed California Gold Rush in 1849. Today, the communities of Coloma and Lotus, with their ranches, orchards, B&Bs, campgrounds, businesses and the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park brings California history to life! The American River is also well-known for its whitewater rapids. The fun begins only an hour from Sacramento and 2 to 3 hours from San Francisco...and just a hop skip and a jump from Placerville!
