Arnold area (White Pines)


The Sierra Nevada Logging Museum has opened for the 2018 season. The discovery of gold in 1848 was a beacon to fortune seekers from around the World; most would be disappointed but the demand for timber products created the Sierra Nevada logging industry. While our logging museum focuses primarily on the “High Ball” 1930s era, information on the entire history of Sierra logging is presented.

Hours and days of operation are 12 noon until 4 pm, Thursdays through Sundays until the winter season beginning November 4th.

Admission is free.

Travel directions: From Angels Camp, take State Highway 4 to the far end of Arnold and make a 45 degree left turn (just past the Chevron station) onto Blagen Road. In about one mile, a ‘Logging Museum’ sign directs a left turn to the museum.

Antique equipment including a steam locomotive, ‘donkey’ and other antique equipment is displayed.
Our museum overlooks scenic White Pines Lake. Fishing (no power boats), swimming, sun bathing and picknicking are attractions.
