Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park

Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in Coloma, CA is pet friendly. Dogs are allowed on trails and in the river, but are not permitted in buildings. James W. Marshall discovered gold in 1848 on the South Fork of the American River; an event which led to the greatest mass movement of people in the Western Hemisphere. Shining flecks of gold were uncovered in a tailrace of the sawmill he was building in partnership with John Sutter. Visit this popular attraction to see a replica of the original sawmill. Those exploring the area with Fido can enjoy hikes and a picnic in the oak woodlands. Overlooking the beautiful river canyon is the Marshall Monument, California's first historic monument and the final resting place of James Marshall. The statue looks down on the river and points to the site of the gold discovery. Visit Website

    Marshall gold discovery state park

    Spent the day here brought our dog with us, there were a lot of other dogs here, our dog went everywhere with us without any issues, we carried her inside the museum, and one of the shops, and was in a stroller in some of the other indoor areas and the porch at the cafe. On leash through all the outdoor areas. Seems to be very pet freindly.
