Life in Calaveras County is good. It is a privilege residents regard with heartfelt pride and commitment.
With a land area of 1,036 square miles (652,920 acres) and a population of 40,554 (2000 Census), there are approximately 16 acres of land for every resident. From near sea level with rolling foothills dotted with century old oaks to the spectacular Sierra crest in the west topping 8,000 feet, Mother Nature’s beauty abounds.
With that comes a wide range of recreational opportunities and a thriving tourism industry, alongside a burgeoning business community. Excellent Schools and Health Care. Quality of life. Community. History. This is Calaveras County.
