  • About El Dorado County…
    El Dorado County is one of the most diverse, exciting and beautiful places you’ll ever experience. From the rolling oak-studded foothills in the west to the rugged and forested Sierra Nevada Mountains in the east, you find everything from rivers and lakes to vineyards. The quality of life is second to none, from historical downtown Placerville to numerous ranches scattered throughout the county. The four seasons are mild, but distinct, and blue skies are commonplace.
    Over 52% of the county is managed by the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, with incredible recreational opportunities such as wilderness hiking, camping, fishing, and kayaking on the South Fork of the American River and world class skiing in the Lake Tahoe area.
    For history buffs, the Marshall Gold Discovery State Park Historic Museum celebrates the origins of the gold rush and offers a unique perspective on the past. A number of nineteenth century houses in El Dorado County have been converted into bed and breakfast inns, providing visitors with quaint, affordable lodging.
    El Dorado County is thirty miles east of Sacramento, and offers many nice suburbs for those who commute to Sacramento during the workweek. El Dorado County became the epicenter for the gold rush madness that seized California in the nineteenth century. Historical Placerville, located near the original gold discovery site, is a popular tourist attraction and is the County seat. The arts and music have become increasingly popular in recent years. The people are diverse, friendly and the pace of life is slower.
    El Dorado County encompasses 1,711 square miles and is home to approximately 191,000 people. Our schools are highly rated.

    The Lake Tahoe area and its ski resorts are excellent sources of revenue for El Dorado County. Skiers from all over the world visit during the winter months. El Dorado County also has a largely agricultural economic base during the rest of the year. Apple orchards grow throughout the western and central parts of the county, and apple exports are a reliable source of seasonal income when the hustle and bustle of ski season ceases. The Sierra Nevada range provides additional economic stimulus through logging. Gold is still found in El Dorado County, lending a feeling of excitement to the area’s economic environment.
