Angels Camp California River Running Guide

Weather for Angels Camp California Forecast

The City of Angels, better known as Angels Camp, is located on scenic Golden Chain Highway 49 near Highway 4 east of Stockton, California. The history of Angels Camp is similar to that of many of California's Gold Rush towns.

In 1848 Henry Angel, a shopkeeper from Rhode Island, opened a trading post after deciding this would be a more profitable use of his time than digging for gold, thus founding the town of Angels Camp.

During the first few years, there were as many as 4,000 miners working the surface gold of Angels. This source played out quickly, but hardrock mining kept the gold industry flourishing in the area until very recently. The entire town remains honeycombed with miles of mine tunnels.

Angels Camp's population today is nearly 3,000. Its popular attractions include Moaning Caverns, an immense limestone miracle with a main cavern large enough to hold the Statue of Liberty, open to the public for trips and rappelling. The recent opening of Greenhorn Creek, home of WPGA winner and Hall of Famer Patty Sheehan, brought world class golfing to the area. The immense reservoir called New Melones Lake offers exceptional fishing and all types of water sports. The antique shops of historic old town Angels Camp keep many a shopper happy. A crowning glory is the Angels Camp Museum which has the job of preserving artifacts from the town's mining history and includes several outdoor exhibits such as a blacksmith shop and the unique carriage house.

Angels Camp is situated at 1379 feet elevation East of San Francisco and Sacramento and North of Los Angeles. Its high enough to be above most of the winter valley fog, the extreme summer heat and below most of the winter snow. Come on up and visit.

Angels Camp is also a state of being. That state of being includes prosperity and kindness. The local merchants and townspeople have dedicated ourselves to the goal of creating a kinder and gentler place.
