Default Way out there?

You mean out in the foothills? Over by Placerville?

Lovely area, good schools - HELL of a commute

Bring lots of money and be prepared to live in your car during commue hours. That being said, it is a nice area.

There really aren't any neighborhoods, it will be like camping - it's in the hills with lots of trees and winding roads - it's lovely. And the schools are good because it's in the middle of no where. You can get to Placerville (towards Tahoe) and have some shopping there, or you can drive down the 50 freeway back to Sac and stop by in El Dorado Hills area.

But either way you are a far drive from Sac even without trafiic - I'm going to say 45 to 60 minutes...now put yourself in traffic it could grow up 2 hour commute ONE WAY, depending on what part of Sac you need.

HTH

Pretty much everything in Sacramento is built on the floodplain until you get into the foothills.

Folsom is at the beginning of the slope up the hill. Natomas is our 9th ward.

Wow. I wonder where some of the folks that responded live. Must not be near Cameron Park!

Cameron Park is hadly like camping any more. There are lots of apartments and homes to choose from. It is a little pricey, but everything east of Rancho Cordova is pricey. Some of the schools in CP are the best in the nation and have won awards for academic performance. There are many wonderful neighborhoods to choose from, ranging from dense housing neighborhoods, to homes on 5 to 10 acre parcels.

The only thing I think is lacking in CP is good restaurants. There are some new ones in the last couple of years such as Applebees, but the selection is limited. You would have to travel to Folsom (about a 15 minute drive on the weekends) for the larger stores and a good selection of restaurants. I heard a Target is coming to CP soon and there are theaters in El Dorado Hills.

The commute can be bad but El Dorado County has a commuter bus system that goes downtown, buses that go to Rancho Cordova, and a bus that will take you to the light rail station in Folsom that goes downtown. The commute on the bus is about 45 minutes. I take the bus every day, so I know.

Let me know what else you need to know. I'm in Cameron Park every day and can check out from friends who live there what you need to know.
