Live & Work Where Others Play!

Land of blue skies, green trees and golden opportunities captures the essence of the quality of life in beautiful and historic Tuolumne County. Rolling hills, towering green pines, graceful oaks and the snow-covered Sierra peaks provide the backdrop for a lifestyle that is hard to beat.

The area enjoys a mild, four-season climate. While a light snow may fall a few times a year, winters are relatively mild and above the fog of the San Joaquin Valley.

This rural setting lies only a half an hour from local ski resorts and mountain recreation, 120 miles from San Francisco, a few hours south of Lake Tahoe and within an hour of Yosemite National Park.

Local Recreation

Tuolumne County is home to endless year round recreational opportunities. During winter, you can ski and snowboard at Dodge Ridge, snowmobile in the high country, or ice skate at Long Barn.

You’ll never be bored in the summertime! Our county is home to boating and fishing on Lake Don Pedro, New Melones Reservoir, Lake Tulloch, Cherry Lake, Lyons Lake, and smaller high country lakes which can be reached by hiking or during a pack trip into the Emigrant Wilderness. Go whitewater rafting on our world famous Class 1 – 5 rapids, or take a lazy float trip in neighboring Knights Ferry. Camping, hiking, biking, and off road vehicle opportunities are endless.

We’re also the proud home of historic Columbia State Park, the best preserved Gold Rush town in the Mother Lode region, and historic Railtown 1897 State Park in Jamestown, where you can ride the train at one of the last operating railroad roundhouses.
