With Calaveras County celebrating the 30-year anniversary of the world’s longest frog jump, plan to take in the Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee in Angels Camp, CA, May 19–22.

It was just 30 years ago that ‘Rosie the Ribeter’ uncorked the best-ever frog leap, 21 feet, 5 3/4 inches – a record that has stood the test of time. And, with a wet winter and continuing damp spring, the Sierra foothills are alive with color and creeks and rivers are running strong. What better reason do you need to visit this beautiful section of California, just an hour east of Stockton?

So, you get days of fun at a wonderful, old-style county fair and the world-class Jumping Frog Jubilee – what are you waiting for?

How to get there: Angels Camp is about 60 miles east and an hour from Stockton. Take Hwy. 4 east to Hwy. 49, then south to Angels Camp.
