Gold Country Campground Resort History
Gold Country was first discovered by non-Indians when Fremont’s Expedition crossed the Sierra Nevada in 1844. As people began the search for gold, they turned their eyes here. In 1848 gold was discovered in California and Gold Country got its name.
The Gold Rush caused a rapid expansion in the region and 400 million dollars of gold was mined between 1849 and 1855. There were 500 mining camps, most of which remain unfound today.
