This lower-elevation area south of Auburn, north of Placerville, and east of Folsom Lake has rolling hills, rural properties, and convenient, flat access to the South Fork of the American River. Known as a whitewater rafting paradise, many folks first discover this rural area while coming for the camping and fishing opportunities.
Located between two major interstates (Hwy 50 to the south and Hwy 80 to the north), the quiet town of Coloma is accessible to urban amenities but quite apart from surrounding more urban environments.
Small orchards, ranches, and historic settings predominate as does the gold discovery site of Sutter’s Mill not far away.
The weather is influenced by being just above the floor of the central valley, cooled by delta breeze in the evenings. Come see for yourself.
