Outdoor Adventures & Attractions


Can’t get enough of the outdoors? Do you have visions of white water rafting and cave spelunking dancing through your head? Skiing, snowboarding, jet skiing, motorcycle riding, backpacking, or an offroad trip through the wilderness?

Or maybe you’re looking for a little less adventure? Imagine a romantic houseboat vacation, camping under the stars, or a leisurely kayak ride on a pristine alpine lake.

If family fun is what you’re after, how about a visit to one of our Local, State & National Parks? Spend the day panning for gold or riding a steam train as you watch history come to life in our Historic Towns. Columbia, Sonora, Groveland, Jamestown and more! Don’t forget to bring your golf clubs, as we have several top-notch golf courses to choose from.

Come see for yourself why Gold Country is the place to be for every kind of adventure!
