Coarsegold is a quaint town in California with a population of fewer than 2,000 people, but big for the gold rush history that this area is known for. This charming township offers plenty of attractions and activities for visitors. Not only can you head to local vineyards to sample some of the state's best wines, but you can pan for gold and take home any nuggets that you find. Known by several names over the years, Coarsegold was a popular destination during the Gold Rush and makes for a great spot for a Coarsegold timeshare. Several mines are still open to the public to this day.
Summer or Winter?
As this California town experiences a climate similar to the Mediterranean region, the days and nights can range from hot and dry to cold and wet. Temperatures can climb to 92 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit on summer days and can drop to 67 degrees or less at night. Winter temperatures at your Coarsegold timeshare usually range from 36 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. As long as you wear the right clothing, you can feel comfortable during your visit. You'll usually see more rain during the winter than you would in the summer, but Coarsegold usually does not get any snow or freezing rain.
Pan for Gold and More
Panning for gold is one of the top things to do in Coarsegold. You can get right down into the water with your equipment and work your way through all the rocks and sediment. Though some local companies let you pan for gold in an area where they sprinkle gold flakes and other gems, you can also go into the wild and pan on your own. Coarsegold Gold Prospectors is a local group that takes visitors out to pan for gold too, though you'll need to fill out an application and sign up for one of the group's events. Other places you should visit during your stay include the Coarsegold Historic Museum, Fasi Estate Winery and Westbrook Wine Farm. A Coarsegold timeshare lets you stay as close to this historic city and all its top attractions as you want.
