Indian Grinding Rock State Park Camping

Amador County, California



Indian Grinding Rock State Historic Park

Indian Grinding Rock State Historic Park makes a wonderful low elevation camping destination. The museum, early Miwok grinding rocks, and a recreated Indian village make the park a great place for children and adults to learn about Miwok culture. The park's south trail is a self-guided nature loop.

The park is home to a variety of birds, deer, fox, bobcats, and an occasional mountain lion or bear. Indian Grinding Rock is located off Highway 88 near Pine Grove, 12 miles east of Jackson on the Pine Grove - Volcano Road.
