About Sutter Creek

Click to open interactive map

Sutter Creek, population 2,800, is considered one of the most charming and possibly the most visited of California's gold-mining villages. It is located at 1,200 feet elevation in the heart of the Mother Lode on Historic Highway 49 in Amador County, California.

Driving time is two hours from San Jose, one hour from Sacramento, and about two-and-one-half hours from San Francisco.

Sutter Creek, as well as the nearby towns of Amador City and Jackson, have retained much of their Gold Rush Era charm while providing a wide variety of fascinating sites for history buffs and wonderful stores for shoppers. Antique, art, glassware, and clothing shops abound, and culinary treats range from fresh baked goods and coffee, pizza and burgers, to full gourmet dinners. Amador County also boasts of an ever-growing number of award-winning wineries, so if you're into feasting on wine and cheese, you will not be disappointed.
