Arnold sits in the central Sierra Nevada Mountains in Calaveras County. At an elevation of 3900 feet, Arnold is picture perfect with towering pines, sparkling lakes and rolling hills of vineyards. The community of Arnold is mostly comprised of vacation and retirement homes, and is known for its recreational opportunities. You'll find plenty to do such as fishing, hiking, camping, mountain biking, and skiing in nearby Stanislaus National Forest, Calaveras Big Trees State Park and Bear Valley Ski Area. There are also three golf courses, three sets of caverns and several reservoirs and lakes near Arnold to enjoy. New Melones Lake has over 100 miles of lake shoreline with fishing, a full service marina, swimming and two large campgrounds. And for a fun day trip, just a short drive takes you to half dozen wineries open for tours and wine tasting. With so much to do, you'll want to have plenty of time to explore this historic and beautiful mountain countryside. Other nearby historic mining towns such as Angels Camp, Calaveras and San Andreas will also make interesting outings while visiting Arnold. When you're in the mood to kick back and relax, consider visiting Arnold in the Sierra Nevada Gold Country.

Arnold Weather & Climate

The Sierra Nevada Foothills  region, or the "Mother Lode," as it is sometimes called, has four mild seasons. In fall, the leaves change and temperatures begin to drop. Winters receive lots of rain in November through March, and it is cool enough at night for a fire in the fireplace, but rarely does it ever snow in the foothills. Spring is very pleasant with showers sometimes continuing through April and May. Summers are hot, dry and sunny. The foothills region is usually a few degrees cooler than the lower valley regions in summer. Fog, which is often a problem at lower elevations in winter, occurs less frequently here. Many people from the Valley travel "above the fog" in the wintertime for a much-needed sunshine break. Thunderstorms can occur anytime in California, but they are very light and infrequent.
