Columbia State Park California

Columbia State Park is a California Gold Country 1849 type park where the state made the whole town a park.  There are no cars, just horses, wagons and foot traffic. Plenty of parking for cars and RVs and a very short walk to town, You’ll find candy stores, restaurants, clothing, and kitchen ware stores or get your photo taken with an old fashioned costume.  Stores are open and the 1849 theme is alive and well.  There are several museums, including an active blacksmith shop.   Columbia State Park is an easy drive from the San Francisco Bay area and a great day visit.  If you wish to spend the night, there are hotels and B & B’s about 5 miles away in Sonora, California.
