Angels Camp Launches It's First-Ever Marketing Brochure

Angels Camp, CA...Distribution began today of a new travel brochure and map that describes the 49 best things to do and see within a 2 ½ hour radius of Angels Camp. The brochure’s title plays on State Route 49, also known as the ‘Golden Chain Highway’, that runs north–south through California’s famed Gold Country in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada range. Angels Camp is centrally located along the 295-mile route and draws visitors from all over the world. With Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park just 2 ½ hours away, Angels Camp is becoming the ‘base camp’ for Sierra mountain activities...




The brochure was developed by Destination Angels Camp (DAC), the public-private partnership that handles economic development for the City of Angels Camp.

Anne Forrest, Destination Angels Camp’s president, presented the first brochures to the City Council at its meeting last night, December 17th. “We are delighted that Angels Camp now has its own marketing brochure,” she said. “Tourism is the number one industry in the area and is growing annually. Angels Camp with its abundance of lodging, dining and shopping deserves to have a brochure that highlights all that the city and surrounding areas have to offer. We think that residents will also find it interesting.”

“49 Things to Do” contains a map of the area along with a list of the 49 most popular activities in the area – from B - beer drinking through to Z - zip lining. Each of the 49 activities contains a sub list of local locations, service providers and shops along with full contact details.

The brochure also gives a quick overview of the history, lifestyle and natural surroundings of Angels Camp, as well as a sample 2-day itinerary. All the photos in the brochure are of actual locations and activities in the area. No ‘stock’ shots were used. Local photographers who contributed their work to the brochure include Rick Harray, Dick James, Tim Saunders, Jason Smith, Josh Steck, Tasha Unninayar, Patrick Works and Lisa Boulton, plus Ian Andreae of Renegade Magazine.

Lisa Boulton, executive director of the Calaveras County Visitors Bureau, says: “I am excited that the Destination Angels Camp map brochure is now ready. It’s been a long time coming… but that has only served to ensure that it’s of the highest quality, not only from a marketing standpoint, but also from a visitor usefulness and engagement perspective.

“I am confident the brochure will help to drive more tourism business to Angels Camp and the surrounding area and congratulate Destination Angels Camp on a job well done.”

Brochures will be available at the Visitors Center, on tourism racks throughout Calaveras County, and at Angels Camp post offices and City offices. The brochure will soon be available on www.GoCalaveras.com, www.DestinationAngelsCamp.com and www.AngelsCampFun.com .

Congratulations on this positive move forward for Angels Camp business community. What benefits our businesses, benefits our residents. We are so lucky to live where others want to vacation. I hope they continue to promote and build on this concept.
Nice job to all those that were key in orchestrating this development.

    Ditto! Don't let the nay-sayers bring you down. There are always a few sour apples in the bushel. Great job!

    Ditto from me also. I think this is great thing. Keep the momentum going. Angels Camp can be a very nice destination and a gateway to many nice places.

      Not wanting to be a nay-sayer here; it's just that the logic doesn't quite track for me. It's either a destination, or it's a stop along the way to someplace else. For it to be both seems to me to require some explaining.

Looks like Destination Everywhere But Angels Camp to me.

Proposed new town motto: "Close to a lot of cool places"

    I am mystified as to why the concept of Angels Camp as a "basecamp" was chosen. With very limited lodging and dining options, and none of the requisite services... such as outdoor clothing and sporting goods stores, ski and snowboard rentals, kayak rentals, fishing and hunting suppliers, the descriptor of basecamp hardly seems to apply. Angels Camp would not be my choice of a place to start.

      the branding mystifies me as well. I think for outdoor sports, its a "pass thru" only, on the way to else where. Its a great place to grab fast food or coffee, but that's about it, unless you're a local utilizing the few other businesses, such as the theater, pharmacy, medical clinics, etc.
      I think its a "branding fail". They should have went with advertising it as a great place to stroll, check out unique shops, eat some good grub, and catch a movie while you are up here visiting. Forget the "outdoor sports" angle. Capitalize on the quaint cuteness of the downtown main street area, the modern needs on the other side of town, the ease of getting some dinner (although the reataurants need later hours!!) and the opportunity to explore the history and nature if you so choose.

        Yes, that's the way I see it as well. A "branding fail". To promote Angels Camp as a "gateway" to other places is to implicitly underscore the fact (perception, whatever) that the town itself does not have much to offer as a destination. Granted, that's not such an easy thing to change, but I cannot help but see in this "basecamp" idea an undercurrent of desperation -- as if we've given up on serious efforts to elevate the town to the actual destination status enjoyed by, say, Murphys.

          I agree with rebranding, after walking downtown, maybe " Calaveras County Ghost Town "

Columbia?

Is Columbia really that far north? I know this is not to scale but it's very deceiving. There's also no road for Moaning Caverns. And water goes under a road on a map, not above it. Looks like the roads dead end.

Great start but needs better accuracy to work well.
