Welcome to Forest Meadows!

Welcome to Forest Meadows, a beautiful residential community located in Calaveras County in central California's Sierra Nevada foothills, between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park. We're just a few miles east of historical downtown Murphys.

Affectionately called the "Queen of the Sierra," Murphys is rich in gold rush history and many original gold rush-era buildings are still in use today, including the Murphys Historic Hotel & Lodge. Visitors can experience the charm of yesteryear while strolling down our quaint, tree-lined Main Street, checking out our museum and antique shops. But visitors will also find that Murphys is a modern, thriving community boasting a number of fine restaurants, wineries, eclectic shops, art galleries, and B&B's. Various venues host live theatre and concerts, plus several community events are held throughout the year, bringing out both young and old for good, old-fashioned fun. And for the adventurous, a number of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities are nearby, including skiing at Mt. Reba near Bear Valley, hiking amidst the giant sequoias at Big Trees State Park, exploring Moaning Cavern Park's underground caves or riding their popular zip lines, and enjoying various water sports on lakes such as New Melones Reservoir. Hiking, fishing, camping, swimming, skiing, boating--the Motherlode has it all!
