Colleges In El Dorado County

The Republican county of El Dorado is located in the state of California. Its location puts it right in the former spot of Gold Country when the golf rush blew up years ago near the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

El Dorado County has become more suburbanized over the years with the Sacramento metropolitan area and its booming population. Suburban growth also has affected the Lake Tahoe region. That area has seen more people than ever before. It even hosted the 1960 winter Olympics.

Incorporated cities like South Lake Tahoe and Placerville (the county seat) are located in El Dorado County. There are also communities there, some with a population that exceeds 10,000 and others that are less than 10,000. El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park are the ones that are over ten thousand and Camino, Echo Lake, Georgetown, Meyers, Rescue, and Somerset are under.
