County Benefits

The County of Tuolumne (population 57,000) was incorporated in 1850 as one of the original 27 counties in the State of California. Stretching from the foothills to the crest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Tuolumne County is both a recreation paradise and a wonderful place to live. Originally dominated by mining and timber, Tuolumne County now enjoys a diversified economy.

The County contains historic gold mining towns, the pristine Emigrant Wilderness, world-renowned Yosemite National Park, and numerous lakes and rivers. Did you know that 95% of Yosemite is designated Wilderness? In Wilderness, you can experience unparalleled opportunities for solitude while visiting some of the most beautiful places on Earth. And, still be close to restaurants, motels and businesses of all types.
Tuolumne County’s proximity to San Francisco (2 hours) and Sacramento (2 hours) makes the County accessible. We welcome you to come discover Tuolumne County’s riches for yourself.
