If You Live In Northern California, You Must Visit This Amazing State Park

The Marshall Gold Discovery State Park is a must see in Northern California. Not only does the beautiful South Fork of the American River run right through it, it is also the site that launched the California Gold Rush.

This State Park is also located in the small town of Coloma, a wonderful little community with all sorts of small town charm. Take in the scenery and really take your time in this fascinating park that has so much to offer.

The Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park is a must see for all Northern Californians looking to know a little bit more about the history of this unique state as well as take in some country scenery.
