Calaveras County is home to 22 wineries, including Ironstone Vinyards which in 1998 completed an outdoor amphitheatre that hosts music concerts, and other celebrations. Calaveras country fairgrounds hosts the Jumping Frog Jubilee and other smaller events.
The larger towns including Angels Camp, Copperopolis, San Andreas, and Murphys are mostly independent of each other because of geography. There are two main high schools Calaveras High School with 1,050 students and Bret Harte Union with 650 students.
To inspire wonder visit the massive Calaveras Big Trees. You can take a humbling walk around giant sequoias. Many outdoor activities like rafting, hiking and camping draw people from all over to the area. Bear Valley Ski area lies just over the Apline-Calaveras county line on highway 4 to the East. New Melones Lake, on the southern border with Tuolumne County, is the largest reservoir in California, just down the road as is championship golfing at Greenhorn Creek and Saddle Creek. Visit the Recreation Guide for more to do in the area.
