Sutter's Fort State Historic Park

One of Sacramento's Top Landmarks

Only two minutes away from Red Lion Hotel Woodlake Sacramento, Sutter's Fort State Historic Park is one of the most treasured Sacramento landmarks. Nestled in the heart of Midtown Sacramento, Sutter’s Fort aptly captures the pioneer spirit of the families who arrived in wagon trains at the dawn of the California Gold Rush.

John Sutter, a critical figure in the rescue of the tragic Donner Party who served as a diplomat with the Mexican government, built the Fort and his agricultural empire until it all came crashing down in 1848. Don't miss this fascinating place to visit for a glimpse into the past, suitable for the entire family.
