Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

  • Natural Bridge Day Use Area (off Parrotts Ferry Road, between Columbia and Highway 4). Consists of a series of three partly submerged caverns running through mountains. The first cave is only a 3/4 mile hike down the hill, and includes inscriptions dating back to the early 1900s. The second and third caves are much further downstream, an extra 1/2 and 3/4 mile respectively. Water depth in all caves ranges from about ankle deep at the entrance to about 8 halfway. Perfectly safe to swim through with only a few fish and crawdads, but one should bring a flashlight to improve visibility in nooks and crannies.

Held at "Frog Town", the county fairground, this event draws thousands of visitors every May. The inspiration for the fair is taken from Mark Twain's short story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" in which two men gamble over whose frog can jump farthest. Sticking to the spirit of the story, visitors are able to compete in their own contest. The fair also features carnival rides, musical performances, food, a destruction derby, livestock auction, as well as a variety of exhibits.  edit
