As we approach that wonderful time of year when April is ending and the first weekend of May is with us, it's time to get out and the Spring Fling is just the thing.  Get yourselves all pumped for CCBR’s premier event of the year. 

Friday night will be a pot luck (with BBQ if desired) so bring what you like to eat and possibly share.  Saturday morning continental breakfast will be muffins and danish provided by CCBR as well as the famously strong coffee served from 6AM.  Lunch is on your own at any of several eateries in the area.  Saturday dinner is catered BBQ style by our favorite caterer, Teal Triolo of Sierra Rizing Bakery.  Teal will also provide a hot and cold Sunday morning breakfast starting at 6:30AM.

We will be hosting the 2024 Spring Fling at Camp Lotus, just down the river from our old spot.  

Camp Lotus is in Lotus, CA situated near Highway 49 between Auburn and Placerville.

Camp Lotus is a 5-minute ride from Coloma, located at an elevation of 791 feet, and has everything you want in a historic gold-mining town.

On January 24, 1848, an event occurred in Coloma that would radically impact the history of California and the Nation. James W. Marshall was building a sawmill for Captain John Sutter, using water from the South Fork of the American River. He noticed several flakes of metal in the tailrace water and recognized them to be gold. Though he tried to keep it a secret, the word spread quickly and triggered the California Gold Rush of 1849.

Things to see and do:

Olde Coloma Theatre

Olde-tyme melodramas are performed Friday and Saturday nights from April to December. Come boo, hiss, and cheer! Great for all ages. 380 Monument Road 530-626-5282.

Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park is the site of California's largest "hydraulic" mine. Visitors can see huge cliffs carved by mighty streams of water, the results of the gold mining technique of washing away entire mountains to find the precious metal. Legal battles between mine owners and downstream farmers ended this method. The park also contains a 7,847-foot bedrock tunnel that served as a drain. The visitor center offers a short video on hydraulic mining and exhibits on life in the old mining town of North Bloomfield.

RV’s and cabin campers please make your own reservation.
