Here's what Trippy members say about Columbia State Historic Park:
"Black Oak Casino Resort has fun for everyone. There is an arcade, and a bowling alley downstairs, and a few good restaurants inside. Indigeny Reserve is a beautiful place to visit, to have a picnic. It has a covered wood bridge, you drive across, and a little gift shop inside the bldg. Columbia State Historic Park, is another gem. It is in the little town of Columbia, and offers free parking, a gold rush town, LOTS of fun shops, and museum buildings to walk around in. There's also Columbia Kate's Teahouse, which offers tea time snacks and pastries. Really fun place to eat! Railtown 1897 State Historic Park is a fantastic place to see locomotives from the 1800's and early 1900's. Its right out of Sonora, in Jamestown. Theres a gift shop, and tours of old trains, and their history. If you want to ride the train, it does cost money, but you must look at schedule. They only run the trains a few days a week. Groveland is a really fun little country town, up higher in the mountains. It's on the border of Yosemite, and offers a few little sandwich shops, and has a nice little grocery store called Mar-Val. There's also gas stations up there, for a quickie snack on the road to Yosemite, and a park, with bathrooms and picnic tables for a rest stop."
