Did you know that Mark Twain made his way here to Angels Camp in 1865 and overheard a tall tale being recounted at a saloon inspiring his first successful short story? “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras” took little-known Samuel Clemens and made him a household name as Mark Twain. And it gave Calaveras County an excuse to celebrate frog jumping for the rest of time – and to claim Mark Twain as an adopted son.
