About El Dorado County

How to Beat a El Dorado County Traffic Ticket

As its name suggests, El Dorado County is the site where the 1848 gold discovery sparked the California Gold Rush and is derived from the Spanish language meaning “the gilded” or “golden.” Yet long before the gold rush, the county was once home to the Maidu, Washoe, and Miwok Native American tribes.

James W. Marshall discovered gold in Coloma on January 24, 1848 causing a population boom. 112 years later, the area saw another increase in its population due to the 1960 Winter Olympics hosted in the neighboring county of Placer. Today, roughly 189,000 people live within the county. The county stretches 1,786 square miles including part of the Lake Tahoe Basin and is located entirely in the Sierra Nevada.

The El Dorado National Forest comprises approximately 43 percent of the county’s land area on the western slope. Thanks to the extensive outdoor activities the county has to offer, El Dorado County was ranked the 6th healthiest county in California according to the University of Wisconsin’s Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
