About Calaveras County

How to Beat a Calveras County Traffic Ticket

Calaveras County is named after the Spanish word Calaveras or  “skulls” and is reportedly named for the remains of Native Americans discovered by the Spanish explorer Captain Cabriel Moraga during his 1806-1808 expeditions. Gold prospecting brought large numbers to the area including brothers Henry and George Angel who established the Angels Trading Post, later shortened to Angels Camp. Today that same area is the city of Angels Camp, which is the only incorporated city located within the County. Calaveras County was one of the original counties of the state of California, created in 1850 as the state was admitted to the Union.

The total area of the county is approximately 1,037 square miles, expanding over rolling hills, creeks, reservoirs, and a number of caverns. The area is also home to the Calaveras Big Trees State Park, a preserve of Giant Sequoia trees and a major tourist attraction since 1852. Calaveras County maintains a population of roughly 45,000 people and is known for its friendly businesses and residents.

Calaveras County made an appearance in Mark Twain’s The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. Each year the county hosts an annual fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee in Angels Camp, California, featuring a frog-jumping contest to celebrate its association with the story. Winners of the frog jumping contest receive a brass plaque in the Frog Hop of Fame in historic Main Street, along with an impressive trophy and cash prize.
