Far from the big cities and the bustling coastline of California, the freshest air and chillest vibes can be found near little Sonora. The Sierra Nevada foothills promise beautiful hikes by day, and some of the brightest skies by night. A plethora of nearby state parks and Yosemite National Park gives campers plenty to choose from.

Far from the big cities and the bustling coastline of California, the freshest air and chillest vibes can be found near little Sonora. The Sierra Nevada foothills promise beautiful hikes by day, and some of the brightest skies by night. A plethora of nearby state parks and Yosemite National Park gives campers plenty to choose from. Wake up on the banks of the Stanislaus River to catch some fish before breakfast, or head higher into the hills to make camp beneath the tall, rocky peaks of the Sierra Nevadas. The stark, hilly landscape makes for the perfect backdrop to any hiking or paddling adventure, and the options for rustic camping can't be beat. Stanislaus National Forest has an abundance of campgrounds to choose from, but just a few miles north the Calaveras Big Trees State Park offers secluded camping and—you guessed it—some very big trees. Alternatively, head just a little south of Sonora, and you'll find private cabins, tree houses and other comfortable lodgings. Put your feet up, wander through the lush meadows, and enjoy the historic spirit of Gold Country.
