Angels Camp, also known as City of Angels, is the only incorporated city in Calaveras County. Mark Twain based his short story “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" on a story he claimed to have heard at the Angels Hotel in 1865. The event is commemorated with a Jumping Frog Jubilee each May at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds, just east of the city. Because of this, Angels Camp is sometimes referred to as "Frogtown."

The inn served as a stop for people traveling along theEbbetts Passroute as well as lodging for those visiting nearby Calaveras Big Trees State Park. In addition to Calaveras Big Trees State Park, another nearby attraction is Bear Valley Ski Resort, which is located only 30 minutes away.
