Strawberry (El Dorado)

lodginglodging reservations in Strawberry (El Dorado)

This location has been evacuated due to the wildfire: CaldorFire 2021. In the middle of the Sierra Nevada, Highway 50 cuts thru from Placerville over to South Lake Tahoe. The alpine terrain is open all year - as snow plows try to keep this route open as the main alternate for Donner Pass, I-80 (to the North). Area is also known as Twin Bridges, CA

This Strawberry CA is one of several inside California. There is a Strawberry in Tuolumne Co., near Pinecrest Lake on Hwy 108 (Sonora Pass), plus another Strawberry Valley on La Porte Road, in Yuba Co. near Sly Creek Reservoir. Black Bear Diner began up in Mount Shasta, where they say there is another Strawberry Valley.
