Visiting Groveland California

Home > Plan > Visit Historic Towns > Groveland

On your way to or from Yosemite on Highway 120, you’ll arrive in Groveland, one of the County’s Gold Rush towns. Try to stay out of trouble though; this town was once named “Garrotte” for the area’s swift and harsh justice from a large oak tree. Once, Groveland offered miners exceptional gold discoveries, but in 1914 the focus switched to water, and the town was chosen to be the construction headquarters for the Hetch Hetchy Water Project—the water supply for San Francisco.

Today Groveland is a must-stop town where visitors find respite in historic hotels, B&B’s and vacation rentals. Beautiful Pine Mountain Lake offers golfing, dining, horseback riding, camping, water sports and an airport.
