Beautiful like the blossom itself, the quiet area of Lotus, CA, situated between the two major interstate highways 80 to the North, and 50 to the south is a low-elevation outdoor paradise. This region is along the South Fork of the American River and is popular for camping, fishing, and most of all, whitewater rafting.
Many visitors grace the area in summer months. The urban refugees come for the recreation and stay for the laid-back, gentle lifestyle. Sample the area by camping overnight at “Camp Lotus,” the most stunningly beautiful, summer camp-like, privately-owned, recreational facility in the foothills.
Small orchards, ranches, and other kinds of agriculture and animal husbandry are everywhere in this close-to-Sacramento rural area. The schools are great and the people friendly. Check it out for a weekend, stay for a lifetime.
