R.V.s and Camping

Camping out is a great way to enjoy the faire. There are limited RV spots with hookups, to reserve one of these spots you must call the fairgrounds at (209) 736-2561. "Dry" spots with no hookups can be reserved online when ordering advance tickets.


The faire takes place at the Frogtown Fairgrounds in Angels Camp, CA. The fairgrounds is on Gunclub Road, off Highway 49 (not Highway 4!), about 2 miles South of Angels Camp in California gold country.

Here are maps of the fairgrounds' location on Google Maps and on Yahoo Maps. Back in the old days there was a dirt airstrip at the bottom of the fairgrounds, both maps still show what looks like a runway there.

Map to Frogtown

From Stockton

  1. Take Highway 4 to Angels Camp.
  2. When you reach Angels Camp, make a right and follow Highway 49 to the fairgrounds a few miles out of town. Be sure to stay to the right (on Highway 49) when it splits from Highway 4 at the end of town.

From Sacramento

  1. Take Highway 99 South to Liberty Road (a little past Galt).
  2. Take Liberty Road until it ends at Highway 88, turn right onto 88.
  3. Follow Highway 88 until it ends at Highway 12, and turn left on Highway 12.
  4. Follow 12 until it merges with Highway 49 in San Andreas, then follow Highway 49 through San Andreas to Angels Camp.
  5. The Fairgrounds are just past Angels Camp on Highway 49.


Lodging is available in Calaveras County, with Angels Camp being only minutes from the fairgrounds. Lodging information for Calaveras County is available from the Calaveras County Visitor's Bureau.

Over the years we've seen that the cheep rooms in Angels Camp can go fast, and a few places go so far as to raise their normal rates on the Celtic Faire weekend. For this reason we suggest you also consider lodging in Sonora which is only about 25 minutes from the fairgrounds. Lodging information for Sonora is available from the Tuolumne County Visitors Bureau.

Of course, if you have a tent or an R.V. the best thing to do is to camp at the Frogtown R.V. park at the fairgrounds itself.
