Indian Grinding Rocks State Park


Recommended Posts

Charlotte and I did our first "real" camping excursion this weekend (we had previously spent 5 nights hauling Oliver home from TN). Went to Indian Grinding Rocks State Park, a California State Park in our Sierra Foothills. Small campground with 23 sites. No hookups. Does have a facility with flush toilets and hot showers. Has marvelous well maintained acreage with a reconstructed Mi-Wok Indian village. Main focus is on huge slabs of rocks with an estimated thousand holes ground into them by the maidens grinding down acorns for their future meals. Their "tee-pees" are constructed from the bark of Incense Cedar Trees. If you are in the area I would definitely recommend a visit. The surrounding area has many small towns that were created in the gold rush of 1849. There is much to explore, good shopping and even an Indian Casino in the neighborhood.
